Honoring Keith Mills

Honoring Keith Mills with Sphynx cats Merlin and Dragonheart

We are two Sphynx cats named Dragonheart and Merlin.  Our human dad is an engineering officer serving in the Canadian Forces.  His name is Major Keith Mills.  He has served overseas on many missions, including peacekeeping missions in Haiti, Bosnia, and Eritrea.  He served in Kuwait during the first Gulf War.  He has helped out in domestic operations such as the Manitoba floods.  This summer he is off to Afghanistan.  We are very proud of him, but we are naturally worried for his safety.  We are purring hard for all the men and women serving overseas.

Our human dad is allergic to cats, but fortunately isn’t allergic to us Sphynx!  We love our dad very much as you can see in these scrapbook layouts.

Although here in Canada we don’t celebrate Memorial Day in May, we do celebrate Remembrance Day on November 11th, when we honour all those who served, past and present.  We are purring hard for all those who served in the past, and continue to serve.  We thank all those brave men and women for their service.  We hope and purr that all those serving overseas come home safe to their families.  Thank you for thinking of them and honouring them.

Sincerely,

Dragonheart and Merlin, and their human mom Christine
