I arrived home and was met with
the heartbreaking news that Ra
died on Thanksgiving Day.
Those of you who know me well
will understand the force of that
Ra was my last pet Pal.
He followed the deaths of Woody and Suki
who were his world mates here.
He died in Randy's arms, and his last loving act was putting
his head softly down onto Randy's shoulder.
Ra was my constant companion and silent shadow
through my recent illnesses and dark night of the soul
and I am very low and deeply saddened because my little
red friend died without me being there to comfort
and love him away.
I'm spending some time now just
being quiet and thinking about my life
with Ra and the departure of joy.
I'm taking space and time for him.
I'll be back on Monday.
Ra was more than a cat.
He was my sweet loving companion.
He was named Aten-Ra
after the Sun God Of Egypt.
He is now Ra again.
