My sister sent me this photo, showing her new cat Molly with Sox’s photo as a screensaver on her monitor.
I have to admit, it brought a tear or two. I remember and miss Louie the ginger cat every day, so I know how my sister feels having lost Sox. She hasn’t given up hope he might show up again some day.
Good old Louie! I have this photo enlarged and hanging on the wall behind my computer. It makes me smile, and reminds me what a super cat Louie was.
They look alike and how very sad Sox was never found.
Louie was a handsome fella.
Andy has good taste with his rearrangements.
I like the photo of him sitting beneath the photo of Louie.
When our old girl Fuzzy died of feline cancer at the age of 14, we were heart broken, and later after we adopted Ali, we found out she was born on the same day Fuzzy died.
Andy and Dougy were born July 1, 2011, and Louie died August 1, 2011. That was just enough difference that Andy was ready to show as a possible new cat for me when I picked up Louie’s ashes at the veterinarian’s. I couldn’t take him home right away, but, buy the time he was ready, I’d had some time to adjust to Louie’s death and make arrangements for Andy in my home. Dougy would come later, though they are from the same litter. They played well together as kittens (and still do!). The person who had their mother knew I was interested in a second cat at some time, offered me Dougy because he and Andy played well together, and they’ve been together with me since.
Hahaa, that’s true – and a little chaos makes a cozy apartment (this says my husband)! ;))
I agree with your husband! Of course, I contribute a lot to the chaos in my apartment since it’s just two cats and me living here. They make their messes, but just in certain spots in the places they like to laze around. I tend to make my messes from the top to the bottom of the place. LOL!
Louie’s epiphany is more than precious!
Louie’s world was turned upside down that day. He always liked sleeping in the dryer, but this moment made him a bit wary about the dryer for the rest of his life.
