Bittersweet Weekend: Goodbye Bootsie.......

Late Saturday evening Bootsie past away. Unfortunately we know now that a wild animal had gotten to her cat some time in the early the morning. We all had a very sad and traumatic morning.

Even though it was early, Scott and I decided since Sunday we were spending most of the day meeting and talking to the Wedding Photographer, it would be best if mom was not alone and, since she would not come along, or feel up to going, we would all go to the Humane Society and see if we could not find a replacement, but a new friend to keep her company.

It was the right thing to do. There was a cat that looked close to Bootsie and that was a little rough. But in the end a very sweet beautiful short hair mixed cat named "Lucy" is our new friend. She is part Lynx. Very friendly.

A new chapter is opening. We will still need time to grieve. Scott bought a cat statuary for his headstone and it is very nice.

Her she is, Lucy. A new friend to keep us in line.
