In loving memory of Kujo

It is never easy to say goodbye to a beloved pet. After all, they are a family member. While each person has their own way of grieving the loss, Karla P. did something unique to commemorate her late cat, Kujo.

I’m am one of your loyal clients, and on January 15, 2013 I lost my best friend Kujo. He lost his battle with cancer, thou it was fast, I know he’s not suffering.
Now I work in a veterinary hospital, and I’ve seen some crazy pet owners. I will admit with Kujo I am one of those crazy pet owner. My other 3 cats ( Poncho, Karina & Chico don’t think I would do as far as I did with Kujo) But here’s my story.
One thing I’ve always said was that when Kujo’s times comes I’m getting his paw print tattooed and his name.  Well the girls at my work got the ink pad out and stamped his little paw and that weekend I was at the tattoo shop getting it on. This helped the broken hearted, but what healed the heart was the drawing my cousin did for me.
I had asked my cousin to draw a collage of Kujo of my favourite pictures.  Now I know my cousin is a good drawer but really did a FREAKING AWESOME job and I have to share it with you and the world.
