3 Years Today ~

The cat could very well be man's best friend 
but would never stoop to admitting it...

They say that man's best friend is his our 
case man's best friend is our Kitty.  That would have been Brutus.  
It's already 3 years our little Brutus died.  Life changed for us.  Most 
definitely did. Today Sniff is our little boy and we do love him so.

They also say if animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering
 outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a
 word too much, unlike so many people who just talk for talks sake and most of 
the time it's just a waste of your time or just out of politeness one has to 
listen and pretend to enjoy an otherwise senseless conversation.

I would give anything to "hear" Brutus again.  To see him.
 To hold him, but it is what it is and that will never be possible. 

 Brutus and Arvid had a special bond and it was just amazing to watch 
these two interact.  I know also that this bond exists with many pet owners 
and their's just beautiful to see man and animal together. 

 Brutus slept in the curve of Arvid's arm at nights 
and though he got tired Arvid  would just hold him for as
 long as he, Brutus was laying there...that's LOVE. 

 Sniff sleeps with us, but he won't let us hold him.  Many a times 
both Arvid and I miss that something extra we shared with Brutus.  
We love Sniff, but Brutus took our hearts with him.

Three years has gone by.  In three years our lives went
 through tremendous changes.  Would we have gone to Branson
 had Brutus not died?  I don't think so, on the other hand 
the time I experienced in Branson will always 
be one of the most special times of my life.

How strange that tragedy also brought something
 wonderful into my life.  My heart misses our Brutus,
 but in our daily lives it is also very happy with 
our little Sniff.  Life it is what it is.

A cat can be trusted to purr when she is pleased, 
which is more than can be said for human beings...
