The Lessons are Over............from Velcro
The reality of it hit me today when I came back home. She was not waiting for me at the gate. That cat was so much like a dog. She knew the sound of my car and no matter, if she was in the schoolyard across the street or in the weeds of the canyon, she would make a beeline for the gate and be sitting there waiting for me by the time I got the car all parked out on the street.
It was a wakeup call. I sat down and reread a few of the many posts I have written elaborating on the silly tricks and weird characteristics of this cat that lived with me for nine years..........on the property for eleven!
The two posts that I enjoyed rereading the most were Lessons from Velcro on October 17, 2009 and More Lessons from Velcro on June 6, 2011. You could go and reread those if you're interested.
Another chapter of my life has ended. It is now the season of no more pets, period. It is just too darn hard when they leave.
Thanks for all your previous comments and concerns. I so appreciate each and every one of you for taking the time to write.
Velcro with her paw.............and I with my hand give you a "high five".
