One day, you chose to stay at the door of Lisa's roommate until they would let you in. You were full of worms, fleas and fear. You would hide from everybody and even from us. I did not think you liked us and wondered if you would ever become a "normal cat". Little I knew, you would become the most loving cat. Little I knew, we would get so attached to you. I have memories from you while playing at the backyard. You were the perfect friend. You showed us what unconditional love means. You showed us how to be courageous and not to fear the unavoidable. You fought for so long and we fought along with you. You were always brave. My only regret is that we did not have you long enough. We miss you every day. Almost every 6th of the month, we light a candle and pray for you. Just as the prayer says, we sent you to a journey free of pain not because we did not love you but because we loved you too much to force you to stay. I hope one day, when we cross the rainbow bridge, you will help us to cross it together and we will never be separated again. We love you and will always love you. Thank you for allowing us be part of your path. Bernd, Lisa and Sandra.
