It is hard to lose a pet – if you have ever lost one, you know how hard it is. If it is hard for adults, imagine how the death of a pet affects young children. More than a year ago, nine-year-old Marley lost her cat, Simon (a black cat).
She was understandably devastated with the loss. The family had two other cats, two dogs, and a guinea pig – but Marley kept asking for another kitten. But, then Ella came into their lives.
Ella was a tiny black kitten that was found under a neighbor’s porch with a litter mate. They think the momma cat was killed on the street. The kittens were raised and old enough to be adopted. Nikki Frost, Marley’s mom, just so happened to meet Ella.
