All is well here! The cats and humans are all doing just fine! I'm amazed Buddy is hanging in there, after the scares he gave us in the fall. He's eating like a horse even after adjusting his thyroid meds. I'm grateful for stable, generally healthy cats!
Today would have been Sarah's 47th birthday. I recently attended a local memorial service for her, which was hard but lovely. It was delightful to be in a room full of people who also loved Sarah dearly. Someone put up a bunch of old photos of Sarah through the years. I took of a picture of this picture of Sarah walking Elmo back in the early 2000's, which would be around the time I first got to know her. Elmo was one of the first cats I ever got to know. Elmo loved to go on leashed walks around their apartments! Sadly, Elmo crossed the bridge a few years after this picture.
I'm picturing Sarah celebrating her birthday with Elmo, Lucy, Boo boo, and her many other cats that preceded her over the bridge. Happy birthday my dear friend.
