You know you have a mellow cat when...

This is the Cat Who Came Before.This is Gizzy, and he went to the Rainbow Bridge two years ago. He was an awesome cat. He loved everybody and he always had to be nearby, preferably right in the middle of whatever I was working on, as you can see.

I was hand-stitching the binding on this chessboard, when I got up to his ear. He didn't move. I gently tapped his ear. He moved it slightly out of the way, and I stitched past it. Then he moved it back, and I kept going until I reached the corner. Then I rotated the chessboard, and he moved his body accordingly. I reached the next corner, I had to tap his ear again.

All the way around.

What wonderful memories of Gizzy you have. I love that he was always watching for you to come home after day hunting. It's so hard when the leave us but our lives are so much richer for them being in them. Hugs to you.
