A Traumatic, Buddhist Cremation For My Cat

Last picture of Varla before I had her cremated. All pictures are by the author.
Varla was so skinny but she was still playful and wanted constant attention.
Varla when she was doing well her on her steroids. She loved playing in boxes.
Varla loved to cuddle next to me in bed. I miss my little circle.

Varla when she was happy and healthy. This is how I want to remember her.
Varla and Mark were always cuddling with each other. They love each other very much.
