In Memory of Sassy

My son, Matthew, chose Sassy at the animal shelter on Nov.30, 1998.  She was about 3 years old and had been left there because she was replaced by a human baby.

She immediately became the queen of our castle and she made sure everyone knew that she was the boss. She wasn't afraid to give you a swat if she thought you needed one. In fact, she would swat you just because you were there.  Her job was to keep everyone in line, and she did a good job!

Sassy always had to be a part of every project I was working on and sometimes that meant she played dolls with me.


"Would you 2 shut up! I'm trying to sleep here!"


"A kiss on the nose does much toward turning aside anger."

"No, I will not help her peel potatoes." 



"Eww! I think this thing needs a diaper change!" 



"I'll wear this now, but you have to sleep sometime. I shall seek my revenge then."



"What do you mean this bed is for Bitty Babies. Hence forth, this shall be a Bitty Kitty bed." 



"This doll mattress passes my exceedingly high quality control specifications." 

My beloved Sassy cat was put to sleep on Aug. 17, 2007 after a 2 1/2 year battle with chronic kidney disease.



There is no death. Only a change of worlds.

Godspeed, sweet Sassy.
