"I dug Cuddles's grave with a silver spade in the little garden by the stream behind the old green trailer where both of us lived in summertime," Kinky wrote. "Her burial shroud was my old New York sweatshirt and, in the grave with her is a can of tuna and a cigar . . . Dogs have a depth of loyalty that often we seem unworthy of. But the love of a cat is a blessing, a privilege in this world. They say when you die and go to heaven, all the dogs and cats you've ever had in your life come running to meet you."

This is exactly how we feel about Inky. Looking forward to seeing you in heaven.
