our marb-meister

Since he pops up here from time to time, my blog friends probably all know Marble. Santa brought him to us as a kitten...



...and he is now over 16 years old. His health has significantly declined in the last 2 weeks, so Christina and David were able to make a quick trip home this weekend to check in with him one more time...



We love Marble so it's a sad time, but we're glad he has had a long, happy life.

Sweet Marble. It is sad, I'm sorry. He surely had a blessed and wonderful life!

And usually cute kids do not grow up good looking. Yours busts this myth.

These pictures are bitter sweet! I love Marble, and feel your pain.

Oh, Barb, I'm so sorry.
