I Only Wanted You!


They say memories are golden

well maybe that is true...

I never wanted memories

I only wanted you!

A million times I needed you

a million times I cried.

If love alone could have saved you

you never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly

in death I love you still.

In my heart you hold a place

no one could ever fill.

If tears could build a stairway

and heartache make a lane

I’d walk the path to heaven

and bring you back again.

Our family chain is broken

and nothing seems the same.

But as He calls us one by one

the chain will link again.





In loving memory of "Huggie" 2000-2010


Huggie is the father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great grandfather and more of many of our Exotics.


A VERY special cat, as well as my first Grand Champion in CFA.

He gained his title in only 3 shows... with 356 points.

On his third show he got 220 points... enough to be a one show Grand... had it been his first show.


Huggie was more than just a pet. He was special, my best friend, everyone's best friend, a role model

the Love of my Life, the most beautiful cat ever, and... he will be forever.


Love and miss you always,

Karin

I'm Still Here...


Please don’t mourn for me,
I’m still here, though you don’t see.
I’m right by your side each night and day,
and within your heart I long to stay.
My body is gone, but I’m always near.
I’m everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I’ll never depart,
as long as you keep me alive in your heart.
I’ll never wander out of your sight,
I’m the brightest star on a summer night.
I’ll never be beyond your reach,
I’m the warm moist sand when you’re at the beach.
I’m the colorful leaves, when fall comes around,
and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.
I’m the beautiful flowers of which you’re so fond,
the clear cool water in a quiet pond.
I’m the first bright blossom you’ll see in the spring,
the first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I’m the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
and you’ll see that the face in the moon is mine.
When you start thinking there’s no one to love you,
you can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I’ll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
and you’ll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.
I’m the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I’m the smile you see on a baby’s face.


Just look for me,
I’m everyplace!
