Blog 8 -- Feline memories and a new cat
Erica was given a cat by her daughter’s mother-in-law and brought it home on Christmas eve as she returned from a visit to Cincinnati. The cat is named Lilly and she is three years old. She was terrified by the ride home in a pet cage and equally scared by her new home. This morning we spent two hours looking for her and finally found her under a shelf in a closet in my study. She is a tabby. I’ve only known cats and not dogs as pets. They are easier to manage in apartments and I grew up in apartments in NYC. She reminded me of our cats past—Buddy, Kittikins, DeBoogie, and Minneloushe.
