|Rachel S. Roberts' Writings||
My family has enjoyed wonderful cats as pets, and invariably when we reminisce, the name of one or the other is remembered or mentioned. Homer, Harry-O, Gratz, Paxton, Alice, Oreo, and Pierre were cats that lived with us the longest, some making themselves so dear, funerals were held. I once wrote a story about a boy who lost his pet rabbit, and his grandmother consoled him by telling him his pet was happy “eating carrots behind the Pearly Gates. “ I think our cats also are behind the Pearly Gates, even though I can visit their gravesites here on earth in our back yard. Each site is marked with a stone. One is by the cherry tree. One is in the flower garden, and another is by a dogwood tree. You get the drift.
