Goodbye little friend.

IMG_2501 by ginmiller74

"Miss Kitty" passed away last week while we were in Florida.  She was at least 16 years old..maybe a bit older.  She showed up around the time that we were moving in 15 years ago..with her small brood of adorable orange and tabby kittens.  It soon became obvious that she had decided on calling our back yard her home and did not plan on going anywhere anytime soon, so after her babies had found homes she took a little trip to the vet to ensure that she would not be giving us any more little "blessings".  While she was a very friendly and sweet natured kitty she was content to be an "outdoor cat", although she always had food, water, and a warm bed ready for her in the garage for cold winter nights.  Miss Kitty was always very sweet and affectionate with Kerry, and Kerry loved Miss Kitty..I think even more than Salem and Sassy.   Kerry is taking it okay so far but she keeps asking what happened and wants to know why.  She said today that she would really miss her and that she was Miss Kitty's "very best friend".  The back yard somehow doesn't feel the same without her to greet us.

Aww, so sorry about Miss Kitty, I think Kerry Lu has some wonderful memories of her, and her Mama has some beautiful pictures to help carry those memories forward.
