Our Box of Life - A very important meme

We were so moved by Miss Peach's "My Box of Life" meme that we felt we just had to play along even though we weren't tagged directly.

Like Miss Peach, we are also very simple kitties. We do not need many material things. We need to give and receive love, full bellies and songs in our hearts. These are the most important things in life.

What do we put in our box of life?

We put our big brother Bingo in our Box of Life. Though we never met him, he means so much to mommy and daddy and we know he is an important part of our lives.

We put all the kitties and woofies who are in shelters still waiting to find their forever homes in our box of life. We also want to put Lesyle in our box. Lesyle is the pet adoption coordinator at Morris Animal Shelter who put Mr. Chen in mommy's arms and said "this one's special". Lesyle is very special, too!

We also put in all the lives of those who have gone before to the Rainbow Bridge.

We even place Dr. Siems, our V-E-T in our box of life because she is kind and very caring and loves us very much and helps mommy and daddy take good care of us.

We put our grammas and grandpas and great grammas and grandpas in our Box of Life.

Furry mice and the lives they sacrifice for us have a special place in our box of life. (Note from mommy: So far, only toy mice have lost their lives. No breathing mouse has YET to sacrifice his or her life for Mr. Chen & Ollie's amusement.)

We place Anastasia in our box of life. She is missing but never forgotten.

We put our friend Olympia in our Box of Life. Olympia is quite old and very special.

Ollie would like to put the bed that Monty's Mombean made him in our Box of Life. He sleeps on it all the time.

We place our unborn sister, Sophie, in our Box of Life. We just know we're going to get along smashingly (someday)!

We put all of our wonderful friends from the Cat Blogosphere in our Box of Life. You all are so wonderful - we can't imagine life without you! We put your beans in, too.

There are so many special moments and friends and loved ones we put in our Box of Life. And, we're only 1 and half years old! We can't wait to do this meme again when we're Miss Peach's ripe young age!! Thank you for creating this meme, Miss Peach!

We tag any kitty who wants to play along.

This is the most wonderful post I have read in a long time. The maid of course started crying again when she saw that you put Anastasia in your box. You are two very very special and wonderful cats and I am extremely honored to be friends with you!
P.S. How is Olympia doing?
