Well, Harry, We Did It!

CATS TALKING TO EACH OTHER 2We did it, Harry! We got her through her first year without him. Man, are we great cats or what?!

Yeh, Sally, I never met him, but by the way she acted, he must have been a great guy. Did you see the way she’d cry, just staring out the window? So weird…

The cool thing is, though, Sally, all we had to do was look cute, and she’d be happy again. You know what I mean? Yeh, Harry, easy work, if you ask me.HARRY BREAKING OUT

Actually, though, come to think of it, I think she got a little help from some humans too. Remember? Those neighbor ladies kept bringing food. That was cool. And remember that time that lady came to the house? What was her name? Stephen Minister? Weird name. But she seemed to like her a lot.

Then there was the “Group”. What’s a Group, Sally? I don’t know. But she kept saying, “Boy, that Group really helped me a lot.”

Yeh, and then there were her kids. Blah. Blah. Blah. Man, can they talk a long time on the phone, or what? Really cuts into our snuggle time. But she always smiles when they call.

Oh right, and don’t forget all those friends from church! Man, they could really make her cry. And then she’d laugh. And then she’d cry. And then she’d laugh again. So weird.  But she kept saying, “What would I ever do without my church family?” So I guess that’s a good thing. HAIR BALL

And, Sally, who’s that guy? Pasta? Pastel? Pastor! That’s it. Gheez! I’m not sure, but sounds like he is a really important guy.  She’s always saying “God bless Pastor. He always says the right thing.”

Well Harry, I guess the more you think about it, it took a lot of us to get her through this time. We did good, though, didn’t we?

Sally, I think we did real good. Yeh, Harry, she’s lucky to have all of us. BLISSFULI think she’s going to be OK now. She’s been laughing more, did you notice? And she keeps saying she’s going to buy a bike and go exploring. I don’t know what a bike is, but maybe there’s birds involved, and that can only be good!

Making me tired thinking about it. I think I need to take a nap. Yeh, me too Sally!

Don’t forget to say your prayers Harry!

    Harry and Sally got it right…….. It did take ALL of the above but without your strong faith, your strong will, your sense of humor, cinderrellasrags, your feisty determination (get my drift!)………this would have been a much different year and we wouldn’t have the Sue we have today :o))))))))))

    Sue, your charming people/cats really captured the year for you. You are helping so many others through your strength and openness get through their troubles and rough times. So happy to read and see first hand all you have been able to accomplish. Walt would be so proud of you today~
