Italian Woman Mourns Dead Cat in Full-Page Newspaper Ad

Well-known Italian artist and possible Oompa-Loompa Luciana Matalon took out a full-page ad in national newspaper Corriere della Sera this week to eulogize her recently deceased 15-year-old cat. She even wrote a poem about him, claiming he was "abducted by a neutrino/adrift in galactic space." Matalon said the feline, named Sky, filled her with "catitude," the cat version of attitude. "I will soon be with you," the ad reads. "And we'll never leave each other ever again." Matalon also mentions that the cat helped pull her together after her husband died. I wonder if he got this kind of treatment. Full ad after the jump. Via Work That Matters.
