After having a reaction to an antibiotic, Landy left us, quietly, on Easter Sunday afternoon. I wrapped her in her pink towel and then we said goodbye to our beautiful, beautiful girl.

Keating had his time with her and after briefly nuzzling her he went back into his condo and thumped, just the once.
We buried her under the wild roses with all that is blooming: lilies, dandelions, peach blossoms, wisteria, violets, clover, and tender grapevine. We will miss her terribly.


  1. I am sorry for your loss.

    What a lovely goodbye you gave her.

  2. That is so sad. I'm sorry you guys lost her so soon. Being in the presence of wild roses is a poetic resting place.

  3. I think I might understand the emotions here. I have a 15 yo cat that I bought from the shelter at 6 weeks. She is on a long, slow journey to the land of the wild roses, after having her life's joy scared out of her by a dog.
