My kitty’s stamp

So...I am just so grateful for this hobby and community. It has been a rough year and got rougher last week when I had to ask a family member to put my kitty down while I was away. My family member had taken the kitty to the vet and she was so sick that she was suffering terribly. So after 15-years of having my kitty, I said good-bye over Facetime.

I have been packing up kitty things and realized that all I have is poo in a litter box, her food, a few fluff toys and catnip as kitty stuff. There are a bunch of fuzzy pictures on my phone, but nothing of her. (No. I am not keeping her poo...) But then I remembered a stamp I made of her paw impression that has been hiding locally. I retired it and now have an awesome personal traveler, made by my kitty. Had it not been for letterboxing, I may actually have considered keeping her poo. (Or not...)

Thank you all so much for the fun. I love that I have something that I did not know would mean so much.

So, so sorry to hear. We lost a kitten not too long ago, unexpectedly, to some malady. I know how heartbreaking it can be.

I’m glad you were able to retrieve the stamp - it’s nice to have that memory.
