It’s been a year. We’re in full onslaught of COVID-19 pandemic. So far, Rusty and I are well, and trying to keep our sanity (mine) during this medical and economic crisis.
Unfortunately, I lost my “Baby Girl” Patches. She was 17 and one month old. As described in my last posting, a year ago, she suffered with a few medical and physical problems. She became progressively worse, and I knew I couldn’t put off the inevitable any longer. It was time.
I called in a gentle, kind-hearted veterinarian who makes house calls, and he agreed we needed to end her suffering. He came the next day, and we said a sad good-bye to the sweetest girl.
She wasn’t upset; in fact, I believe she knew. She was relaxed, I held her, petted her, and then she was gone.
Sorry to share this now – but I figured you all who have been such great bloggers and friends who have looked in to this blog on occasion, over the years, should know what happened.
I started this blog in 2011. Didn’t know a thing about blogging, but for a few posts on another blog which was connected to a small business I had at the time.
My cats were the incentive, and I took photos and posted them.
This blog has become my memories, which I can look in on whenever I feel the need to see how far they’ve come and how far I’ve come along with this chosen avocation.
Now that I don’t have Romeo with me anymore, I can look back on all the happy times and his shenanigans and his interplay with Rusty and Patches, that I so much enjoyed! Better than framed photos on the wall or on a shelf!!
Patches is a very patient girl. So sweet. She really wanted to lay down in the spot where Rusty made himself comfortable. So, she decided to take up the space next to Rusty. As soon as she did, Rusty left the rug.
I’m always surprised by their actions. One can never predict what they will do. That’s part of the allure of cats. They keep life interesting, for sure.
The cat tree with the “penthouse” at the top has been here since Patches was a small kitten. She has definitely “grown” into it. And, of course, it’s one of her favorite places to take her afternoon nap.
