This cat urn features a dilute grey calico, Gwen, walking by a corner chair and an oval marble topped table. Does she see the tiny mouse hiding under the table? There is a clay pot with flowers and a book on Victoriana on the table. There are four glittering hearts around the lid and a cat and two mild bottles on the front of the base. The overall dimensions of the urn are 7" x 4.5" x 7" (length x width x height). The interior dimensions of the box are 7" x 4.5" x 3".

Gwen’s mom had her since she was born. Gwen’s kitty mom, Callie, was dropped off at Gwen’s mom’s by a woman who was on her way to the local animal shelter (kill facility). She was extremely upset by having to go there, but couldn’t find anyone to take Callie, who had shown up pregnant at her house one night. So Gwen’s mom agreed to take Callie and find homes for the kittens. Callie had five kittens and four of them got new homes, but Gwen’s mom decided to keep her – she was the only calico in the litter. Her kitty mom was a traditional orange, white, and black calico and Gwen was a dilute gray, which is different than most calicos.
If there was ever such a thing as a “purrfect” cat, Gwen was the one. She had the most wonderful personality – she was calm, laid back, and nothing bothered her. She was accepting of all the other cats and kittens her mom brought into our home and even accepted an older dog that was put into the mix. After that, even more cats and two more dogs came along, and she was great with all of them. She was never picky and would eat whatever she was served – both dry and wet food and always used her litter box without a problem. She even liked to lick hairball medicine off her mom’s finger, and whenever she was sick, her mom could give her any type of medicine without much fuss. Her claws would curl down when they started to get long, so they had to be trimmed. Whenever she started getting stuck in the carpet, her mom knew it was time to cut them. She didn’t like it, but she tolerated it. Her only flaw was that she loved water – she would spill all the water dishes in the house, so her mom started putting her water dish in the bathtub and one in the sink. She also had a running water fountain which she loved, but most every morning, her mom would have to clean up the water off the basement floor from the bowl that was downstairs.
Gwen is now with her best buddy, Crosby, who passed away on September 11, 2008. Now they will be together for eternity under the Rainbow Bridge.
