Our thoughts are with Nell Wallace in the death of Stella, her domestic shorthair. In 2018 Stella walked right up to Nell's patio. She later came into the house and never wanted to leave. She was a very loving, gentle, sweet girl with a big appitite. Stella was a lap cat and had to always be with Nell. She had quite the shoe fetish. Always smelling them or laying in them. Stella also enjoyed playing with toys. She spent a lot of time with her cat brother, Fannie. They were the best of buds. Stella would throw herself on him and he would groom her, but Fannie always let her know in a nice way when he had enough. She had her fiesty moments and loved to go in the kitchen and bunch up all the rugs. Her nicknames were Stellie and Stell Bell. Her name came from the 1950's film, A Street Car Named Desire. She was a sweet, rabbit soft, beautiful eyed girl who will be missed deeply. To to the family or in memory of Stella Wallace, please

Our thoughts go out to Michelle King and Landan Swiney on the death of their beloved cat Edge AKA Edgy. Edge was originally named Horace and rescued by Michelle when he was estimated to be 3 years of age. Michelle was attracted to his captivating meow and his ability to snuggle well. The name Horace did not suit this cool cat and since Michelle is a huge U2 fan having traveled the world to attend their concerts it was decided he should be named after famous guitar player "The Edge." After a fellow fan shouted during a concert for The Edge to refrain from drinking from the toliet and Michelle crocheted a beanie for feline Edge to wear, human Edge recognized him and feline Edge is now well known through out the world by fellow U2 enthusiasts. Edge was a little skittish and would often hide until he got to know you. Once familiar he would go in for his popular snuggles. Edge was wonderful friends with his feline sibling Dallas who bathed him nightly. (not to be denied U2 shout outs, Dallas was named after the Edge's guitar technician.) The Edge was a very special part of Michelle and Landan's lives and his friendship will be forever remembered and missed. To to the family or in memory of Edge King, please
