Another lesson in the rituals of mourning

As if my children needed additional "lessons" . . .

Both girls were upset when Drew told them about Cookie.  She was their cat, they picked her out at the animal shelter, they chose her name.

Drew decided to have the cat cremated, and he wants to spread the ashes in the back yard.  Cookie was an indoor cat, she never left the house, but she loved to sit on the window sill and look at all the activity in the yard.

He'll get the ashes in 2 weeks.  And when the girls come for Thanksgiving we will have a little ceremony to say goodbye.
