Joe the Cat, R.I.P.
This morning our beloved Joe Kitty succumbed to congestive heart failure.
He was 9 years old; he'd been seeing a cardiologist and on medication for seven years.
Only through Caroline's constant care and keeping up with his meds were we able to enjoy his companionship this long.
He really was just about the finest animal it's been our honor to know.
I told a friend over the weekend I couldn't imagine life without Joe, but we'll carry on.
And we'll always remember a sweet spirit who couldn't really purr very well; when he tried, he drooled.

A Hard Life for
A Feral Cat!
This is Orange Kitty--"Orange" for short--
who showed up on our back porch as a feral cat in 2007.
For seven years, he looked in through the back door window, but wouldn't let us touch him.
Finally, he let Caroline stroke his tail, and now he sleeps in bed with us, is a total rub glutton,
and has a purr like a lawn mower. It's a tough, tough life.
