I’m not the only kittie MomGoth is an unofficial relative to. She has two beloved cats who live in England! The other day, she was deeply touched to receive this from them, put into the mail (or, as they say over there, the post) by their human, Andrea Gilbey.
Dear Auntie Marian,
We wanted to send flowers, but Mama said they wouldn’t last, so we sent a flower card instead.
We never met Katya, but we will always remember her, and that she encouraged our writing talents.
When we are big grown up writer-cats like her we’ll dedicate our autobiography to her. We have a title already — “A Tale of Two Kitties”.
If we were there we would snuggle you so you wouldn’t feel so sad, but as it is Mama is helping us send a lot of love to you and all Katya’s family.
Love from T.C. & Thomas
MomGoth is a little sniffly over getting such a sweet card from the dear boys. She counts herself very lucky to have such good kittie friends like them — and me!
