Missy, of Blessed Memory
Very sad news: my friend’s cat, lovable, delightful Missy, has died. The probable cause is rat poison, which people sometimes put out in their gardens in order to deal with pests, with sometimes tragic results. It appears that this is one of those times.
Although the vet worked all morning to save her, despite his best efforts Missy died at around noon today.
I’m in shock. I still can’t get my mind around the fact that I will never see Missy again.
Here are some pictures of her:
As a kitten, play-menacing her older housemate, Her Ladyship:
Accepting skritches from me:
Waiting for my friend, her human companion, to come home at the end of the day:
Going into hunting mode when something caught her attention:
Missy always gave me her best poses. My camera loved her, and so did I.
Rest well, sweet cat. You were deeply loved, and you will be sadly missed.
Barukh dayyan ha-emet. Blessed be the True Judge.
