In 2004, I had to put my cat Ashley of almost 17 years to sleep. Old age was tough on her and her body was failing terribly. I cried for days. It was a year later that I got my current baby, Jack. He was two when he came into my life. We've had Lily since 2002, but her psycho ways didn't heal my broken heart. My husband and I got Ashley just before we were married, so we'd had her forever. The void the loss of a pet creates can be hard to fill.
Most nights now at about 10 pm, Jack comes to find me. He's ready for bed. He likes to sleep on our bed at night snuggled on my feet. If I am reading a book or on the computer, Jack likes to get between me and whatever is keeping my attention off of him.
Good bye Highway. You will be deeply missed, but not forgotten!
