The second Sunday in September was established to be the National Pet Memorial Day. It was begun in 1972 by the International Association Of Pet Cemeteries & Crematories (IAOPCC), though it doesn’t seem to be an ‘official‘ holiday. Still, it is a special time to show love to the amazing pets who have enriched our lives and souls.
I am a cat lady.
I was the mother to four amazing cats – Anya, Olga, Boris Gregori, and Emma. We had many blessed years together, and they were a source of great joy to my entire family. However, they have returned to our Creator.
As a writer, I have penned a book in memory of my cats, Boris and Olga. I have one planned for Anya and Emma, though it has yet to find its way onto the pages. Still, my beloved fur babies live in my heart always. Not a day passed when I don’t cherish the thought of them and what they mean to me.
