A Traveler and his Cat exploring America.

Amanda discovered this sad memorial on her morning walk.

I didn’t want to go see it myself.  But the next morning I screwed up the courage to go and try to find it as it would make for a meaningful blog post.

Please don’t let your pets roam free.


  1. Sad day. A nice memorial for Trixie. We lost our Annebelle one day in the TX desert on Good Friday 2019. She was in the camper and got frightened by a neighboring "yappy dog". Wriggled free and Ran into a mesquite bramble patch ... never came back out. We placed a similar water bowl before we left, in hopes she'd come back, and have been told that many of the neighborhood ferals are using it to this day. Folks in the neighborhood are still filling it. Kind people everywhere.
