Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton moved to a temporary home for a couple of months in 1974 while Burton filmed The Klansman in 1974. One of Taylor's cats, Cassius, went missing from the new neighborhood and never returned. Taylor wrote Letter to my Lovely Lost Cat, which is part memoir, part poetry, to organize her grief. Read the letter or the transcript at Letters of Note. It will remind you of what your pets mean to you.
