I appreciate every kind word, and thank you all.
Laura slipped away from us on Tuesday, while I was holding her hand.
I thought she was falling asleep, but she never came back.
Her poor body gave up this afternoon.
The world is the poorer for it.
I'll be taking in her two kitties, Sisko and Molly.
Sisko was a young stray in Oakland, when Laura lured him to her with dinners and sweet talk.
When she moved out to La Honda, she brought him along, and he discovered wilderness.
Molly was another wild cat, living in the woods by the creek.
Laura was a world-class cat coaxer, and Molly consented to become tame.
I have patted Molly, but never Sisko.
So we'll be over there trapping this week, and undertaking yet another feral(ish) kitty mission.
I don't have an entire wilderness for them, but there are a lot of connecting backyards and trees.
I think they can be happy here.
