The Loss Of A Fascinating Cat.You all know about the variety of cat personalities. We recently lost one of the nicest cats I have experienced. She was a shelter cat that we got at 5 years old. My spouse chose her because as she was looking at the cats, she was the only one that came out of her little cubby to interact. Once home she had the attitude that she completely owned the house. Yet, she enjoyed playing fetch, running after and returning toys that we would toss. And, she was a good hunter - enjoying the task of ridding the yard of mice - one time she came in and threw up what we thought was a hairball, but was instead a whole mouse.- and this from a 7 lb. fluffball of a black cat. I enjoyed how very interactive she was; not just a food-friend.
I'll miss her. Alas that these animals we love have such a short lifetime.
