, sweetheart! How are you? Thank you for your lovely letter. Oh, I'm heartbroken too that we're apart. But soon, my love, we shall be as one.
My human friend Joe has been sad lately, because our feline sister Jaws passed away. She was 20 human-years of age! My, but she'll have loads of neat stories to share with everybody at the Rainbow Bridge. So I've been sticking closer to Joe so he won't feel too sad. I remember how sad I was when my mother Sesheta never came home. Joe was there to comfort me when I was sad, so now it's my turn to help him. These things are too sad.
Let's talk about something else, okay? I've been thinking Bone, Idaho, might not be the best place for us to meet. Let's find a place that's just as far for both of us! I've been looking in Joe's big atlas of the world (it's a book with pictures of all the places we can go). There's a nice warm country called Mali, on the continent of Africa. The place I've been thinking of is called Tombouctou. It's 43Â° Celcius there today, according to Joe's temperature thing on Samantha the Computer System! Is that too warm for you?
Anyway, let me know where you think we should meet. As far as what to take with us: Those nature programs on television always show humans in khaki clothing and hats. I'm glad we don't need such things! But I wonder about drinking and eating. Of course, there must be mice nearly everywhere; but we'll have to be careful about the water.
Tonya is thrilled that Handsome will be coming with us. She's all excited. Silly girl! Hey, we can consider our travels one big long double-date! With four of us, we can take turns at standing watch. (You know what else we can take turns at?)
Well, I'd better go. Joe is finished cooking so he may be here any minute. Take care, sweetheart! Don't be sad or worry. Remember, our love will enable us to overcome all obstacles. When I think of you, I get just plain silly!
Many kisses and much love to you, my MoMo
