Wednesday, May 13 marks the one year anniversary of the passing of Laurel Jaffer. For those who don't know, Laurel passed away suddenly leaving behind her 2 cats Aldo & Tess and her dog Noelle. Catsters and Dogsters from around the world rallied to rescue Noelle from the pound and capture Aldo & Tess who had been set loose to fend for themselves. Noelle and Aldo were rescued and rehomed with other Catster members, but Tess' fate is still unknown. For more information on their touching story, please read The Cat's Meow entry from 11/21/2008:


If you want to learn the latest on Aldo and Noelle, you can join the group FOR THE LOVE OF LAUREL.

Rest in peace, Laurel. You and your furkids have not been forgotten.
Noelle (the- next- chapter!)

Mommy -
I think of you everyday. How you had your friend run with me when you couldn't, how you bought me the best food, how you even got me a treadmill so I could exercise when you didn't feel well... I sat at your side when you passed, thinking that my world had ended because my family was gone. But mommy, I want you to know that I inherited a new family - a HUGE one - full of people, cats and dogs who joined together out of love for you and gave me a new life. Just as I thought my life was over, they saved my life and gave me a new one. Things are good here on earth, mommy, because of all of the lives you touched while you were here. I miss you and love you with all my heart and I know we will be together again when I go to the Bridge... but I am not ready to go yet. There is so much love here... and it is all because of you.
Your furrever baby girl,
Dylan aka- Dilly,my- angel
