  1. I wish that it were always possible to protect them from pain. Our Xerxes died from feline leukemia back in October. We didn’t know that he had it until it was too late. It was an awfully painful death…for all of us.

      1. That’s actually why I originally wrote The Red Claw – Xander’s character was based on Rom, who was our ‘best cat ever’, but passed at 16.5. As I was writing the novel, I based other characters on current and previous pets and/or friend’s pets. For instance, Merlin in based on my sister’s beloved Wizzard.

      2. I wish that I had enough brain cells working right now to be able to write a story starring our precious Xerxes and those others that have gone on before him. Queen of any story would have to be Shep, the German Shepherd/Chow mix that we had for a very long time. She was about 16 years old when she passed away. That’s the longest we’ve had any one pet. Our little Xerxes, a black and white kitty, was only 16 months old and was the hardest loss yet. It sounds like you have a good idea going. 🙂

      3. Toby was just over a year old when we lost him. You’re right about the young ones being the hardest to part with… that is not saying older ones are easy. Originally, I thought The Red Claw would be a stand-alone book, but I’m currently writing # 4. Red Claw was dedicated to Rom, and I’ve dedicated subsequent novels to the memory of pets others still miss. For instance, Me-YEOW! will be in memory of Ellen’s Spooky, so I’m including a black cat helper for Xander.

      4. I love the name “Spooky”! It sounds like something our youngest daughter would name a kitty.

        It was incredibly hard to lose Shep. She was our only dog for so very long and was our oldest daughter’s first very own dog. It really is hard to say good-bye no matter how long or short we have our furry babies.

        I just posted a picture of one of our sweethearts from a few years ago. This kitty was a real ham!

        I’m betting those cats that you’re honoring with the stories are smiling really big there in Rainbow Bridge.
