Memorial Day is For Remembering

On this Memorial Day weekend, I would like to remember my sister, Taffy, who went to the Bridge almost two years ago. Taffy used to love to sit in this wicker basket on top of these towels in the bathroom. Mom left the basket just as it was when Taffy used it. She did not even wash the towels.

Sometimes when I am feeling sad and missing Taffy, I go and sit in this basket. It makes me feel better that I can still smell the scent of her furs. From this basket I send her purrs and tell her I miss her a lot.



Mom told me what the true meaning of Memorial Day is, but I hope nobody minds that I would like to remember Taffy too, on this Memorial Day weekend.


Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

Taffy must have been a great kitty. My mom says she will remember Gracie on Memorial Day. She went to the bridge 2 years ago and my mom still misses her.

It isn't our memorial day in the UK. Humans wear red poppies, do your humans wear anything special?

I am sure you are allowed to remember others on that day too.

It sounds like Taffy was a great cat! In Canada, we don't celebrate Memorial Day, but we have Remembrance Day on November 11th, when we remember all those who fought for our freedoms, and honour all the men and women who served our country and who continue to serve. It's a special day for us because our dad is an officer in the Canadian Forces.

Hi, JB...

I'm sure you have great memories of Taffy...She sounds like a wonderful kitty...

My First Best Friend Tigger, who was a beautiful kitty, went over the Bridge a year ago...She was
17 years old & we are remembering her today, too...

Thank you for asking. I only have to have an operation so I don't have any kitties. MM & MB secretly want me to, but they are trying to be responsible humans.

I think it's sweet that your Mom left that basket as it was, so you can sense Taffy there.
