P.S. Your cat is dead.
Well, that's a rather brutal way of putting it, isn't it ? Until now, though, there simply wasn't much alternative. But wait! Northridge residents Ronnie Hegedus and Bonnie Strassman have created a line of sympathy cards just for pets.
So now you can send a two-color card depicting a cat on a pathway to the stars or a dog frolicking in the clouds and inscribed with messages such as: "An empty bowl, a favorite spot/at first will be hard to bear/but comfort comes from knowing/you had wonderful moments to share."
The cards are called Sym-pets, cost $1 each and are available at selected stationery stores, pet shops and veterinary offices. There are a few for occasions besides sympathy too.
