Rest in Peace, Salem

April 1, 1998 - October 28, 2008

Goodbye, my feline familiar. You were a wonderful companion, one of the best friends I ever had. You were there for me through good times and bad, I'm not sure what I'm going to do without you purring there beside me each night.









I love you, Salem, Rest in Peace.

Thank you so much to all of you for your thoughts and sweet notes. It has been a rough couple of days but I'll get through it. I still miss him so much..sigh...

Very sorry to hear this news, Rapunzel, I know you said you thought Salem didn't have long. As you know, my Leo died on Saturday after 17½ yrs. I miss him so much and know how you must be feeling. Hugs, ~Lesley~

Dearest! I just read about Salem -- and we grieve with you! They are indeed are true 'familiars' -- for they know us too well and in all sorts of times and troubles! Four cats here -- and each one is unique and soley their own being -- and we would miss that special quality for each and every one! Salem waits for you -- just beyond the garden gate!
