Frosty – a pal

Frosty Foster. Aspin Hill Memorial Park.

This is my favorite tombstone in the entire cemetery — Frosty, a white cat, posing in a blue dress.  If you’ve ever had a cat, you know that they are usually not inclined to tolerate nonsense like this from their owners.  Frosty, owned by the Foster family, must have been one special cat.  The simple tagline “a pal” at the bottom of the tombstone is understated yet sincere.

One of the delights of visiting a pet cemetery is reading all the interesting, heart-warming, and funny names people give their pets.  Last week, I showed you the tombstone of J. Edgar Hoover’s dog, Spee De Bozo.  Now meet J. Edna Hoover, an English bulldog buried in Hartsdale Pet Cemetery in New York.  I wonder if the owners really admired the FBI director, or if this was their way of mocking him?
