  2. Kate, I am touched beyond words. Thanks for your prayers and wonderful support. I am lying here with Mamo in my arms. She is comfortable right now and purring. If she could talk, she'd let everyone know what an incredibly warm and caring person you are. Thank you my dear, dear friend. Your drawing brought a smile to my face and more comfort than I can articulate. xoxo

  22. Nice illo. When I was in High School I had a friend with a cat that was fatter than the cat you have pictured; the cat I mention had a belly that dragged on the ground.

    Best wishes for your friends cat.
