I miss my best friend Katie-Marie. I miss her big fluffy paws and gorgeous hazel eyes. Kate was an old girl and the quality of her life was quickly sliding so I had to let her go with dignity. I adopted Kate when she was approximately 11 years old, as a senior cat from MEOW. I was able to spend 7 great years with her. Kate saw me through some major times in my life, lots of ups and downs, good times and bad. She always knew just what I needed, from loud steady purring to sooth me, or gentle strokes with her head, or long gazes with those luminous hazel eyes. I loved her dearly and I know she loved me – I’m going to miss her gentle guidance, but I will take the memory of her fluffy sweetness with me.
