You can imagine the sense of sadness I felt when I found this cat skelleton in my garden the other day. The garden being on a rural Greek mountainside, there's a 99% chance that this cat died of hunger, illness, dehydration or the cold. It didn't look like a peaceful death scene and knowing the sure destiny of thousands and thousands of Greek cats, I wanted to make a mark. So I thought about it for a few days and this morning, when wondering where I should put a newly acquired catnip (a plant cats adore), it suddenly became clear that the cat skelleton should have a proper burial and that the catnip should be planted on top! So here's the before and after. It was a lovely little ceremony and a tribute to the life of the cat to which these bones belonged.
May it rest in peace.
