MIA for good reason

December has not been kind to me.

My cat died, there were two more deaths that touched our friends and family and I found out my newspaper went up for sale.

This post is related to the last item. I wrote a bio for IWantMyRocky.com. See it by clicking here.

Suffice it to say, I don't think I'll be around here for a while. Meantime, I hope everyone has a great holiday this year! I'm going to enjoy my Christmas, the second one with little B.!

A favorite

Photobucket

This has always been one of my favorite cartoons. I think about it every year around this time (and especially after partially watching Rudolph on TV).

Miss you, Gabby

We had our beloved cat of 7 years euthanized today. I know I'll miss her when I walk in the door tonight. She always greeted me with a little chirpy meow. Clicking on the topics, you can see past posts about her hiding tactics, penchant for golf clubs and role as a big sister.


In our room, cuddling up like she used to do.
Gabby the nosy cat!

Being a big sister, and one who's never far away from the camera.

Showing B. what a cat's tail looks like!

Making sure Mom carefully trims the nails.

When I was sick with mastitis for the first time, she stayed by my side.

She always loved to sit in B.'s rocking chair. I would get mad at her for it, but I think she did it to be closer to her "little" brother.

Remember what I said about the camera? She also always played nice with B.'s friends.

Caught her one night napping in B.'s bouncy chair.

She looked too cute to move.

I think these were her last few healthy days in September.

Always guarding B.'s toys after he went to sleep at night.

Of course, always inquisitive.

Always willing to cuddle on a cold day made for hot tea, a good book and quilts.

Oh, Gabby, we miss you so much.

We were lucky to have you with us for 7 years.

Now big sister Booty will relearn what it's like to be the only kitty at home.

But I'm sure she'll miss cozying up to her sometimes-annoying but always lovable little sis!

Dream some sweet kitty dreams!
