Today we said goodbye to our Big Kitty, Skye.
We got her seven years ago. She was a stray but you could never tell that. Though she was shy at first, Skye quickly became a lover and a lap cat. She was the friendliest cat I’d ever met and none have ever purred as much as her. Simply looking in her direction was enough to set the motor going. She was also the rare cat where when she rolled over on her belly, it wasn’t a trap. She really wanted you to pet her belly and she loved every second of it.
She was Bee’s best snuggle buddy, Indy’s biggest girlfriend, and Cici’s reluctant but tolerant big sister. She loved laying about in the cat yard and letting the sun warm her belly.
Skye was taken from us far too soon but she’ll be rolling about in a field of catnip (her opium of choice) and waiting for us with a purr. Until we meet again girl.
