About this photo: “Gone. But Zoe will never be forgotten. There are times in our lives when we have to say good bye forever. Zoe was my feline companion for a mere 4 1/2 years. More than a companion she was a therapy cat. She comforted me in sadness, helped me through sickness, made me laugh when depression came knocking.  She was all I had. And now alone…emptiness. Her death is a reminder to me that everything is impermanent.  That life itself can be gone in an instant.

Always and forever in my heart, my little friend.”
