  6. Last year we lost a cat named Fred. He was a seal point rag-a-muffin with blue eyes. I still miss his crazy antics. Animals are so important in our lives, sort of like plants fill a special place.

    When you lose a precious animal, it’s actually losing a beloved member of your family – he’ll be up there in Kitty Heaven with my cats Sugar and Honey.

  27. Really it is striking how similar our two boys were, right down to shoving their noses into cut flowers. Was it the carnations he was after? Cat couldn’t resist them.

    • Yes. Carnations. Thanks for prompting me and our whole family in Ohio (at breakfast eating steel cut oats) to remember our beloved Murph!

      • Brilliant on both counts! I wonder what it was about carnations? MasterB isn’t bothered.
        I hope the Murph stories brought lots of smiles and shared memories.
