What a nice way to go, though, eh?
Oh definately....she was "daddy's girl"
Intrepid...my Lulu was 21 when she died. I'd had her since she could sit in the palm of my hand.
Reyn....we put her on the floor so roland and otis could see. roland took one look, did that cat "turn his head away" thing, and moved a few feet away, but sat nearby for a minute or 2, then resumed his business.
otis, who's quite young, was more curious. He walked up, did a sniff here and there, stared for a few seconds, then left too.
Even though she was old, and kept to herself a lot, she was always there in the front of the house, a presence.
I said later on that night "The house feels empty"
Ah well, so it goes.
Thanks everyone. I appreciate your sentiments.
