R.I.P. Miss Cleo


Our beloved cat, Cleo, died this morning. We are going to miss her so much. Jim & I have had her ever since we moved in together in the Fall of '93 and we're a little shaken that she's just gone now. She was such a wonderful house cat... very loving, she loved to "make bread" on us, sit with us, play and she even tolerated the boys a lot more towards the end (when she mellowed out). She was probably 17 years old and lived a long, happy life, but we are going to miss her dreadfully and I can't seem to shake this sadness right now. This picture was just taken two days ago out on our back deck. Cleo was always up for a few photographs and I liked to think that she posed for me. :)

I'm so sorry for your loss Lisa. You must have given Cleo good reason to stay around for seventeen years...I'm sure she loved you as much as you loved her. Hugs to you and your family.
