Yesterday I received the sketch in the mail that Missy Mandolinrain had done of my dear Tootise. It is amazing - and so is she for doing such a beautiful thing for someone she has never met. I have always been truly astounded by this place and the wonderful people we meet here! It is so powerful!
I have attached a picture of the framed (she framed it too!!) sketch she created. Plus another picture of Tootsie. (Also one my sweetie Holly who misses her "sister kitty" too.) Tootsie had a special vulnerable, soft, gentle look in her eyes and I think that Missy captured that so very well....which means she captured her spirit!
Tootsie's ashes are now buried in my back patio garden - with a stone that says "When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure." I have many ways to hold her in my heart - including the very special gift from Missy! Thank you!
