“But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or the bushes of the earth, and they will teach you; and the fish of the sea will declare to you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? In his hand is the life of every living thing..." JobHe was an extraordinary personality and everyone remarked about it. Garfield was not aloof at all as cats can be but personable, loving and sweet. He loved people.
He stayed near me all the time and when I was away for surgery and then away for physical therapy he developed an ulcer worrying about me because I was gone for a month.
His chair was next to mine in my office. He sat sweetly as I said the blessing before our meal and the grace after meals and waited with me until I was done.
Garfield was born in the bottom drawer of my old dresser along with his brothers and sisters all of which were adopted out except for him and his brother Sandy. Sandy passed on a few years ago.
How I will miss his sweet voice greeting me and seeing his joy at sitting in the sliding glass window to soak in the sun.
No more fun as he would carpet surf from room to room. Getting up speed he would slide thru the house from one throw rug to the next. It was so much fun and I will deeply miss his cute performances.
I have not been blogging much as he has been failing for a few weeks now and for the last few days refused food and then water.
Tonight he walked to his litter box and tried to go, but he couldn't. Mr. neat and clean to the end. He never made messes ever even when dying!
He walked back to the hallway and fell over and breathed his last.
I cannot thank God enough for his life as it was a huge blessing to me and a great mercy that He shared his tiny servant with me.
