That was lovely, Dan. Peelu was one lucky kitty.

Just spotted a quotation from the French writer Anatole France: "Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." It's safe to say that thanks to Peelu and your other cats, that part of your soul is certainly awake, and you're the better for it.

Thanks, Michael. I know that quote - and believe it to be very true, indeed.


What an absolutely beautiful tribute to Peelu and to the immense love you two shared. No one could have loved her better or written about her more tenderly than you, Dan.

Thanks, Jennette - she was a special creature and friend, indeed. I'm so glad that you got the chance to know her.


Hey Dan,
Just read this to Shannon and started crying all over again - dammit! She will surely be missed and is already playing with Mentos and all of my kitties. Thanks for letting me know her... and you! Please call when you come to visit the desert... beers on us!! xo
