Holly Lisle posted about the loss of one of her cats, Winnie, today. It made me think about how much I miss my girls, Feline and Billy. In fact, I was just discussing this with my DH last night. He said they're up in cat heaven, cuddling, with an endless supply of catnip.
Despite the fact that Feline died about 10 years ago and Billy three, I still think of myself as the girl with two cats. I still talk about "my girls." They will always be a part of me even though they are not physically with me. Those of you with pets will understand.
