In Loving Memory

Sasha

sasha passed on today.

she was a very strong, 20 something-year old petite kitty. many knew her as "pretty". my brother rick said she was the "prettiest kitty in new york city!". the knick name "pretty" stuck. sasha was my first pet as an adult. she's been with me through thick and thin. this amazing cat clearly had more than 9 lives.

sandy, cassie, yoshi, quico and all the rest will be greeting her on the rainbow bridge.

we love you sasha. you will be missed.

Let me be the first to offer my condolences. Sasha's long life is a testament to the wonderful home she had. Even though she was a 'senior' kitty, it's never easy to say goodbye to a best friend. She must have had quite a welcome at the Bridge from her siblings who went before. your brother was right - Sasha was indeed a very pretty kitty!

Yes, she has had a long life, and quite obviously, was dearly loved. Being with someone for 20 years is a long long time, and a large void is left when they leave. You have been blessed she chose to share her life with you. Remember all the good times you both have had, the lessons she taught you. She is quite the pretty lady!

I just have to say, "Thank you! Sasha" You were a wonderful, tough amazing girl! You came in to my life and tought me that cats are sweet and loving creatures as well as sophisticated and sometimes aloof. I will miss you more that I ever thought possible. I know you are up threre with the rest of our departed family, laying down the law, purring up a storm and making cinnamon buns for the angels! Ok, time to stop my eyes are welling up yet again writing this. I don't exactly know what I belive in, but it is very comforting to know you will be threre to meet me, when my time comes, at the rainbow bridge!

I loved sasha from the moment I met her four years ago. I remember being shocked when you guys first told me how old she was because I thought she was like two!! She always seemed so young, in appearance and in spirit. She had a great meow and a funny tooth that used to stick out. I liked that she, more than Mia, would let me hold her or climb on my lap.

I am on my fourth kitty, having had to put three down and one ran away, so i know how difficult this time is. She will be missed like all our pets when they go - they are a part of our family. You are in my thoughts...
