When my beloved Saber left our world, he left behind a GIFT.

I initially thought this GIFT was for me ... alone.

It is not.

It is for suffering animals and the people tasked with protecting them. They are also suffering.

Two days after SABER died....... this playlist was on my ipod, sure, genius function, logical explanation, except, I barely know how to turn my ipod on, much less do something in itunes? I hadn't listened to the song that generated the playlist for over a year, no one else had access to my ipod, and I hadn't plugged it into my computer since Halloween.
~~~~~~ Since I wrote this I have [possibly] spoken a person that "understands how the genius program operates" and though they declined to go further, they stated [given the complete circumstances, I related, concerning my [lack of] computer searches and [minimal] use of my ipod] that they didn't see how this particular playlist would be generated. ~~~~~~

Spontaneous Compilation? Divine Intervention? Something More Mundane?

Does it Matter?

If you're having doubts, If you're filled with guilt, If you need consolation....

Accept This Gift or Don't ...... But Don't Debate "Reality" With a Dead Cat...
You'll Lose

Starting on page 2 of this thread, the 15th post, Saber's playlist is posted via You Tube videos. Over time, some videos have been deleted from You Tube, so I encourage you to find any "missing" songs by going to You Tube and finding a different video version of that song. Each song is important, each chosen for you.

The first song on Saber's playlist was playing ... when Alfredo found me.

1. Bittersweet Symphony : The Verve

Bitter Sweet Symphony - The Verve - Vevo

When you have finished listening to Saber's playlist you will no longer [need to] feel guilty ... That's the beauty of his GIFT ... and hopefully the pain will lessen somewhat.

Saber's GIFT illuminates their side, their feelings, their needs.
When Saber asked me to share his playlist, 7 years ago, I initially planned to post it on any, random, memorial site that came up in the search results.

Saber knew better though. When I landed on citi-data, my first post was a love story to him - and so he, and I, found our new home here, in Cats Forum.

I say he knew better, because in the 7 years since he passed, only 253 people have visited the memorial site I almost posted his playlist to.

In the same 7 years, over 29,000 people have visited his/this thread on citi-data -Cats Forum.
