I'm sorry about your mentor. You have an excellent point about not finding cemetery plots. They are really hard to find. I differ with you on what to put on a tombstone, however. Perhaps she did want her name that way, or perhaps it doesn't matter (metaphysically).

You do? So do the majority of friends and sisters I've asked. Maybe that's her name. Do you have pets?

Thank you so much, Debby! I did post two pictures, but I don't know what happened to them. Would love to post on your wall. Thanks.

Tomorrow will be the one year anniversary of the death of my orange cat, Buttercup, age five. She had carcinoma. I adopted her the same year that both parents died, and she was my consummate buddy. (Before you think I'm too much of a Debbie Downer, I promise this story has a happy ending.)
I never thought I'd have a cat again. Then two weeks ago, I found myself taking a pilgrimage to Mount Airy to meet a cat named Tawny. She was a love bug from the second I saw her. A siamese mix with a really obnoxious meow. "She's a winner," I said to the woman helping with the rescue mission. "I'll take her."
So now Tawny and I have completely bonded. She's punk rock all the way, destroying everything, but I don't care because I love her. There's just one thing -- I hate her name. The name Tawny sounds like a stripper, and I will not have my cat stripping for anyone!
These are names I'm considering: Milkshake, Squeaky, and Gretal. I would love to get any feedback about these names. I'll post her picture so you can see what goes with her looks (She does squeak a lot).
I told you there was a happy ending. I adore this cat!

Sir Maxwell is adorable, and I know he now lives with a wonderful family. Thanks to Mutts Matter for finding Max a home. And thanks to Autumn for realizing "it was meant to be."
