Sundance: A Remebrance

Today we lost my cat Sundance. He was the basis for the cat Enoki in my book. I hadn’t dedicated the book to him, but it will live in remembrance of him.

Sundance was like life:

full of contradictions

He was gentle and timid

yet his meow was loud.

His purr was soft

yet his favorite way to show affection was a boisterous head butt

He had a goofy charm

yet he had the depth of an angel.

He was silly and clumsy

yet he always knew when I needed some comfort

He saved my life

yet I couldn’t save his.

But I held him as he passed

from this life to the next.
