Goodbye Zorro

We lost Zorro yesterday. It was quite a shock because he had just had a great visit with the new vet in Yadkinville. But he was almost 12 and I trust he just slipped away without much discomfort. I will miss his little inquisitive face to greet me each time I entered my quilt room in the barn. This is the spot I would always find him if I went out in the morning...he loved to perch on his gumdrop pillow (a present just for him when we got married from Salem Stitcher) and watch the squirells at eye level in the trees. He now lays to rest beside his best buddy Z kitty. Go Postal and I will miss him a lot.

Oh gosh...my heart just broke a little :(

I'm so sorry...he was a sweetheart. I'll miss his fuzzy face too next time I come to the barn to sew.

Rest well Zorro kitty, out there over the rainbow bridge.

Oh so sorry to hear about Zorro. I'll never forget the blessing he gave to the quilt I worked on in the the barn with our bee. Just think, he is now holding down Natalie's quilts in quilt heavan.

I'm so sorry to hear about Zorro. And to think that he is with Natalie brought tears to my eyes. He was a good cat and I know you will miss him.

I empathise with your sadness for you kitty as i lost my constant companion of 16 years, a cocker spaniel called Henry, last week.

Oh, I am so sad. I will miss him rubbing up against my leg when I come visit. Sweet wee man.
