  44. Oh No! I cannot believe it. When I saw the words Stiny and Rainbow bridge I thought “how odd that there are 2 cats named Stinky,” since I just SAW him looking alive and well!. My heart goes out to you Ellen, I guess this must have been very sudden. It shows us life is so uncertain, we must love when our dear ones are near with all our hearts and souls, not knowing what the future will bring. I am remembering Stinky in that cute tent and with his adorable cowboy hat. Goodbye dear Stinky. Condolences, my dear friend, Ellen!
