My kitty J.J. (see April 01 entry) passed away this weekend after 24yrs of being. I was fortunate to have her home when she died. The house seems emptier even though the past year she had primarily slept around the clock, taking the occasional tour around the first floor for exercise. Funny how you get into routines. Even going to the grocery store has changed because there's an aisle I no longer need to go to for food.
I may add a new member to the family but not until after the holidays. Time to heal.
