Romeo had curled up to sleep that afternoon. He awoke and the world was very different. He sat up, stretched and yawned, licked his paws and preened his whiskers.

He looked around in the soft, warm light of the day and noticed another two cats watching him, love in their eyes. “Gizmo, Teko? Is that really you. I haven’t seen you for so many years. I missed you when you went away.”

“We’ve been here waiting,” said Gizmo.

“Come,” said Teko, “Let’s go and chase butterflies.”

The three old friends raced happily across the Asphodel Meadows, together again at last.

Heartwarming story Carrie. I had to google the Asphodel meadows so learned something new today. Nicely done.

Carrie, it is always heartbreaking to see how the animals who stay behind miss their friends and siblings.

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
