R.I.P Beau Kitty, I will always love you!

The loss of Beau has been so very hard. The pain that I feel I can't describe. One minute I am fine and all of a sudden I start to think about Beau and I break down again into the ugly cry. One minute I feel that I can go on and live then next minute I feel that I can't. I have quilt. I have remorse. Part of me feels that I did the right thing but the other part feels like a bad owner. I wonder if he knew how much I loved him. I hope that it gets better. I have on picture of him in a frame and it's not his best. My printer has been locked up in storage for over a year and a half so the ink is dry. I would like to get some other pictures of him. I want to get this done soon.

He was an active member of the window watchers outdoors club, believed strongly in helping with the dishes, enjoyed long lazy naps under the covers and was sometimes shy to strangers but once he got to know you, he would let you scratch the fur. Survivors include owner, Jay Arnold and Betty Jo Kitty Arnold of the home.
