My Sweet Mary Louise
Mary Louise died during the night.. I don't know why, don't know how.
I was woken by the words " Mary Louise died during the night"
To say I'm besides myself is putting it mildly. I said goodnight to her and in the morning she was gone. That's all I know. I don't know what it was that took her little life.
Mary Louise my sweetest, gentlest, loving soul of all the cats I've ever had. She was about 7 years old.
She wasn't sick, hurt , and ate her food last night as usual.. What the hell has happened here.?
Around 6 years ago I was living in a place north of here , on 3 acres of land, and one day she just appeared there just sitting there. I know someone just dumped her.. It was that kind of area.
I took her in.. vet, shots, spayed, all the things you do when you love animals. I named her Mary Louise, a sweet name for a sweet cat. She was indoors, never let out, but there was always something a bit strange about her. Even that young (maybe 2) she slept 20 hours a day, never moved fast, never curious like cats are and was the calmest, most laid back cat I'd ever seen. Sweet? You have no idea.
Whatever happened last night has happened, .. I write this to maybe get some of it out of my system , (do we ever) ? no, not me .. BJ
