Lady Buys Full-Page Newspaper Ad In Memoriam Of Dead CatS

We love our crazy cat ladies around here, and 77-year-old Italian artist Luciana Matalon certainly fits the bill, as she adored her 15-year-old kitty so much, that when Sky died, Matalon placed a full-page ad in national newspaper Corriere della Sera. The ad featured a poem she'd written about the fabulous feline — lines like "Listen to the great silence of the universe/The world is extinguished." Matalon also added: "I will soon be with you." And: "We'll never leave each other ever again." The ad may have cost a lot (it's unclear how much) but Matalon is quoted as saying, "My profound feelings are beyond financial measure."
