Callie was about six years older than Lucy.
Callie was here first.
Callie was the leader, Lucy was the follower.
If Callie was begging for cheese,
Lucy was right there, too.
Most of the time, they got along.
And if there was a disagreement, it wasn't that serious.
It has been four months since Callie had her stroke,
and passed away.
Thank you, to everyone that asked about Lucy,
and how she is doing without her little friend and leader.
Even, on their last trip to the clinic,
Callie was assuring Lucy that everything would be okay.
Callie died shortly after that trip to the clinic.
Do you think she is lonesome?
I bought Lucy her own special bed...
I don't think she was impressed.

Lucy did enjoy helping us decorate the

She had been dropped off at the Humane Society a couple of weeks ago.
Maria was a Senior Cat looking for a quiet home to spend her retirement years.
She loves her bed, sunshine, and cuddling.
I was so serious about Maria,
that I even washed up Callie's food dish.
It had sat on a shelf in the laundry room
since she died In October.
It was just my luck,
I had "sat on the fence" about the new addition to our cat family too long.
When we went out to the Humane Society this weekend,
Maria had been adopted just one day before.
So...for now...Lucy is still an "only" cat.
She actually spent some time with me
during our weekend nap time!
It was meant to be...
we will remain a one-cat family until further notice!
