Dear Dr. Annie,
Your guidance and Dr. Meg’s compassion and patience greatly eased the heartbreaking experience of saying goodbye to our much loved cat, Pablo, in the home we shared with him for nine special years.
Two homeless men found Pablo in the middle of a Santa Ana street when he was a kitten. These men took him to the home of a friend of ours, and several days later Pablo “adopted” us. He never tired of being with us. Pablo loved being carried on Rod’s shoulder and probably would have happily stayed there even if Rod decided to walk to the moon. When Howard was reading, Pablo loved to stretch out on his lap with his paws often covering his eyes like a sleep mask. The one time a mouse appeared in our house, Pablo darted in the opposite direction, and he loved gazing out the window at the birds without ever displaying a threatening gesture. Pablo was something of a pacifist.
We deeply miss our wonderful Pablo, but we will always be grateful for the gift of nine unforgettable years with him.
Howard Seller and Rod Stephens
