Cinders' Say

We would like to thank all who sent countless warm comforting, encouraging wishes, thoughts, purrs, headbutts and woofs including graphics done with much love.

EJ could not locate Cinders' young photos but found some taken 10-15 years ago when EJ was a squatter in mom's home.

Cinders had cute, unique sleeping styles which was weird at times...

...and claimed whatever was EJ's, paper notes included.

She worshipped the morning sun. (Note her sagging belly!)

Of all places, between EJ's knees were her favourite.

When her cross-eyed brother, Cookie, was alive, they both were always together, resting or watching the world go by under the Jasmine tree.

After Cookie passed on, she sat on the table by the window looking out at the spot where Cookie was buried in the corner of the playground next to the house. (See arrow) 
There were times she would sit under the Jasmine tree alone to look at that spot or watch the world go by.

Cinders need not eye that spot anymore for she would be frolicking and resting with her Cookie always.
PS: Cinders laid on EJ's lap on the eve of her passing from afternoon through evening and night till 1am.
EJ played this music for her to listen daily when she was not well.

You are a true cat lover and a wonderful person. To hold Cinders through her passing and play music while she drew her last breath was truly loving and amazing. Not many would be so kind and loving. Cinders and Cookie are now together and at peace.

That was a wonderful tribute to your dear Cinders - after so many years she will leave a big hole in your hearts.
She will watch over you while she is snuggling with Cookie again.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

A dear and sweet tribute to your baby, Cinders. I love the music you chose for her. I had some for my Admiral too and I am unable to listen to it now as it is completely hers and makes me cry.

Love and hugs to you and the family and may you smile with her memory. xox
