He Ain’t Heavy, He’s Her Brother

Periwinkle is one of those special kitties that just seems to hold others up. So in honor of my precious girls’ 9th birthday I will share something special about her. There she is above, on the day before we lost our Buddy to congenital heart failure, snuggling up to him, and, as I later realized, holding him up and keeping him warm. She is good at that. That picture was taken this past Christmas night (2012), and little did we know at the time it was Buddy’s last night with us (he was 9 1/2). Periwinkle loved her Buddy. He ain’t heavy, he’s her brother.
