Kiki, 1994-2007, RIP

Today the Fausto family joined the ranks of UU bloggers who have recently lost a family pet. We're sad, but holding up.

Put the rubber mouse away,
Pick the spools up from the floor,
What was velvet-shod, and gay,
Will not want them any more.

What was warm, is strangely cold.
Whence dissolved the little breath?
How could this small body hold
So immense a thing as Death?

-Sara Henderson Hay

I'm sorry to hear of your loss and hope that your Kiki, like our Bailey, left you many good memories to help get you through.

oh, I just saw this! I am the saddest of the sad for all of you.

She is delicious. Head kisses on her and hugs to all of you.
