In Memoriam

I am very sad today. It is Don's and my wedding anniversary and we are apart, on opposite sides of the globe, in opposite hemispheres. This, however, is a minor pain compared to the news I have just received that one of our cats has passed away on this day. He was a wonderful cat that chose us from his place in the back of a cage at the animal shelter, a proud strong cat who loved to hunt and to lie in the grass in the sun. He had been named Snuffy by his previous owner and we adopted him as an older cat when he made it clear to Don in no uncertain terms that he and not the little orange cat that I had wanted to adopt was to come home with us immediately. Just before we left for Australia, we learned Snuffy was suffering with liver disease and we were very happy that he remained strong and moderately healthy for Don's return. Don has done a wonderful job of caring for him during his last days. We miss him terribly.
