Saying good-bye to Oliver.

     God gives us love. Something to love
         He lends us; but when love is grown
      To ripeness, that on which it throve
          Falls off, and love is left alone.
                                                              Alfred Tennyson

It was with great sadness we had to say good-bye to Oliver.  He developed a saddle thrombosis causing paralysis of his legs with congestive heart failure.  We always knew he was living on borrowed time.  He was born with congenital heart failure and severe allergies. He wasn't quite 2 years old.  He loved being the center of attention and we called him Oliver the Frolicker. He is sorely missed.


  1. Oh, Doreen. I'm so sad for your loss. Oliver was one lucky cat to have you care and love him.
    I send my biggest hug to you and hope the memories of Oliver make you smile with your heart.


  2. I am sorry about your sweet kitty. Kitty heaven has a big bowl of warm milk and a healthy spirit waiting for you.
    Thank-you for your visit. Sincere appreciation.
