The Best Cat in the World

Our cat who posed with the Team Ria shirts below, had a sudden illness and died on Saturday, September 5th. He was nine years old.

Grief I'm learning binds with grief and this unexpected loss seems to have kicked up the dust of my sister's death.

It has awakened that terrible feeling of not being able to catch my breath, of sighing and sighing, of swallowing a bucket of stones.

We had a small funeral today. Our surviving cats have glued themselves to my legs. And tomorrow is the first day of school. Life goes on.
