May 1997 - Feb. 21 2011
Sadly, we lost our precious Wallace on Monday. Mom and I rescued Wally from the WalMart parking lot in Spearfish S D in June 1997. He was thrown from a speeding pick up and I couldn't for my life see how a tiny kitten could survive such a horrible act but Mom ran to a line of parked cars calling and out he came. He was a tiny ball of fur with great big feet. We rushed him to the Vet. and found that he was fine; Mama named him Wallace and he became her best friend. When her house flooded in 1999 and she came to live with me Wallace and her other five babies came too. After Mom passed away Wallace was so full of grief and I worried so much about him but with me, Kirby and Brother there to spoil him he soon recovered. Then Brother passed away and Wallace once again began to grieve, he would always talk loudly when he heard Brothers voice and continue talking until Brother took him in is arms. Since the day Brother died I've never heard him speak again. After a few months passed he seemed to recover to some degree and he knew that Kirby and I adored him. I honestly think he grieved himself to death; he'd never been sick a day in his life and he was the center of attention in all of our lives. What do you say about a gentle spirit that has given all of his love and so much laughter and happiness to so many. I know that Mother and Brother are holding him in their arms and he's probably already bitten someone in heaven, and I'm sure he's probably broken something. I know they are happy to be together again and be a family again but this house is so empty. I miss you Wally.
