R.I.P. Piper ~ ? 2002 - October 13, 2007



We are in mourning here at the castle, having just said goodbye to one of our feline family members. Our sweet and lovely Piper, the most affectionate and loving of our furkids, passed away this morning. Though she had a short and troubled life, we would like to think that we helped make it a happy one. She came to our home unexpectedly, a stray kitty that was living at my ex-husband's fire station...when they decided to spay her, she came to our house for post-op recovery and the rest is history. She adopted Bambi as her own, spending every night and most days curled up on her bed, occasionally wandering into someone else's room for a cuddle or a purr just when the human needed it most. She was a simple soul, we believe that the injuries she sustained on the street affected her mentally as well as physically, but that made her even more special to us. She loved easily and completely, had no fear of anyone, trusted that everyone she encountered was trustworthy and wanted to have a cat perched upon his or her lap. We all loved her dearly, and she will be greatly missed.

Rest in peace, dear Piper, we love you.

Aw, what a sweetie! You made her short life much better than it would have been otherwise. I love my cats too and am always so upset when one dies.
