Enjoy the time you have.  No one, not person or cat or mouse, is  
guaranteed a minute of life.  If we spend all our time wondering when  
we or our friends may leave, we will deprive ourselves of their  
happiness and wisdom and we will prevent them from loving us and  
teaching us.  We all die some times and we all die from something.   
The idea is to enjoy all of life as much as possible and not to fear  
death.  I know.  It is almost impossible but I have learned from Mai  
Mai PG, the Royal Princess Kitty Katt, and my wonderful Dixie Louise.   
Please try to learn and love without fear.
