The story of Peanut (pre-selected... this will include it on your card).

Don't add the story.

The story of Peanut as told by his human.

Peanut was Mom's cat. I think he was her Guardian, though others have decribed him as a moocher and only in it for himself. But I saw Peanut differently. He was in love with Mom. He slept at the foot of her bed, on his special coverlet. And if she slept in later than Peanut thought natural, he would carefully paw at her arm to waken her.

Once awake, Mom would gingerly walk down the hallway using her walker, with Peanut either leading or, all too often, a bit under her feet. Once Mom was ensconced in her customary seat in the kitchen, watching the televison, Peanut would paw at her silently and beg. For food, treats, attention, who knows? He pawed at her a lot and stared at her pitifully like he was starving. For something. One morning, Peanut was unable to rouse Mom from her sleep. He tried, but to no avail. He seemed to know that she would never wake again, and he jumped off the bed and stood guard at its foot. He shied away from his coverlet.

Mom's only son cares for Peanut now, maybe a bit begrudgingly. And he gets pawed at, continually, as he works at his computer at the kitchen table. What is Peanut trying to say? We love you Mom, and we miss you, especially Peanut. Even if he is a persistant beggar, he was a loyal friend and guardian. God bless him, and God bless us all.
