Spike keeping me company

Spike looks so peaceful when he sleeps.  His big paws hang over his cat bed and the tufts of fur stick out like "bed head".  He is generally a laid back cat, not too concerned about the busy activity of humans or dogs.  In fact, he often wanders by the dog water dishes and helps himself to a quick lick on his way by.

These days, it seems that we see the cats more often in the living room when we are sitting here.Spike continues to hold siege to the cat bed on the table and has coerced two cats so far to move out of his way when he has decided it is time to lay down (cat bed seems to be even better if it is pre-warmed for him!)  Sebastian is wandering through the room more often now, enjoying some prime time window viewing.

It has been three weeks since Dakota has left us  - and while the cats have adjusted quickly, it still brings tears to my eyes when I look down and I no longer see my little black and white girl sleeping by the front window.  You never really think about it ahead of time ..but those little creatures work their way into one's daily habits and one's heart during their time here with us.

Thank you all for your kind comments and sympathy on our loss of Dakota.

Spike has magnificent paws with such lovely tufts. Hard to resist tickling them!

It does take a while for emotions to settle when we lose a furry member of the family. We love them, they love us!

Take care!
