More on Pumpkin

It has been one month since Pumpkin died. We have adopted Cassius and Lily and our affection for these two fat cats grows daily. But our hearts still ache over Pumpkin. I am even still bitter of the visit we were paid on July 4th.

After the raw emotions settled, I spoke with the hospital administrator and set up a payment plan to honor our debt. Today, one month to the day of his untimely death, the last payment is due. KD received a call today from the hospital, they called to tell us that one of the staff who called her dad to bring her cat, Nash, down to donate blood to Pumpkin, donated a $150 credit to our account.

This cat was something very special and we were glad to be part of his world, even for a short time. Tears of deep, unspeakable gratitude sting my cheeks.

That's amazing about the credit. It looks like we will be getting one of Deb's kittens that was named Pumpkin in your special kitty's memory. I will post pictures when he comes to our home.

That is amazing...it touches my heart when people stick their necks out and do good for othes. Sounds like Pumpkin sparked many a good deed....

He was a beautiful kitty, that's for sure. I saw him down here on our stone wall a couple of times although at the time I didn't realize it was Pumpkin.
