A sad parting

Last week we said goodbye to one of the girls..

Andromeda, aka Romy, was Ms. Tina (in the background) latest housemate.  They would occasionally hang out in the front window or under the dining room table (here they hid) but typically they held to their territory or enjoyed a good scream and slap around session.

Over the past couple of weeks, we noticed something was wrong with one of the girls, but couldn't figure out switch one.  They are both good at keeping things to themselves.  Well the vet dropped a major bomb on us,  Romy was in kidney failure.  Though she wasn't a snuggle kitten, like Ms. Tina, we all miss out guard kitty.  During my time home this winter and spring, she would take position on our bed each night DH wasn't home.  More recently her protection place was on the floor on my bedside, so whenever I got up she was ready to come along where ever I went.

I hope Romy finds friends in Tess, Garden Kitty, Nocturne, Mr. Mann, and all our other animal friends who are waiting for their 2 legged humans to come back to them.

Sigh. Poor sweet Romy. I'm sure there is a whole welcoming party for her.

Not a good summer for kitties, that's for sure.

Give Ms. Tina a pat from me.

I'm so sorry for you! I lost my kitty not long ago and I miss her so much. It seems like I see cats on every blog I visit these days...
