For all our friends who have loved and lost a dear animal friend.. "What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply, becomes a part of us." ~Helen Keller~ "No words that I can pen will ease the pain and the feeling of hopelessness that is the unavoidable companion to the death of a friend. And yet he hasn’t gone away forever, for he will always live in your thoughts and your mind and be one of the best parts of the past." ~Earnest H. Hart
* * CAT SNIP: The Oriental Shorthairs, like all the Siamese group breeds, have a long, tubular body, the same width from shoulder to hip. Even their toes are long and slender. Despite their sleek shape, their bodies are muscular and firm, shown off by the luster of their short, close lying coat.
