[quick note - There are several Julie-s who have done nice things for this rescue work: the Julie whose brick I messed up (and who was SO understanding about it); the Julie whom I blogged about yesterday (see yesterday’s post); and THIS Julie.
Julie has a brick in the WWWalkway memorializing one of her own sweethearts. Then during the last brick round, Julie sent me this email: My best friend just lost one of her cats last week, and I want to put a brick in your walkway for him. I thought my friend might like to have the same brick for her patio. May I order two bricks, with the proceeds of both going to Winnie's Wish, and could you ship the 2nd to me? I would happily pay the shipping cost. Please let me know if you think this is doable.
Doable it was! Now here is Julie’s tribute to her friend’s cat Tigger.
My friend Kelly adopted her cat Tigger at about 6 months old. He was a Philly tom with ear mites and a lot of spirit. He was always a very friendly cat. Tigger had a tic like dogs do - if you scratched a certain place on his back, he would turn his head and chew the air until you stopped. Kelly just lost Tigger in October. He was her roommate and friend for close to 15 years. Kelly, I, and all the rest of her friends miss him but were happy to have known him.
Julie ~ THANK YOU.
