Some folks have asked me

if Oribel misses Sadie, to which I generally have answered "Who really knows with a cat?" I still stand by that statement (not my business to try to understand a cat!), but I am beginning to think she might, at least a little. It used to be that Oribel would sleep on Sadie's bed in our room every afternoon and some evenings. Well, she hasn't slept or even gotten on it at all in the last week (plus a few days). She has slept on Sadie's bed in the family-room a couple of times, but again this used to be a daily activity, if not several times a day, so that is another significant change.

The biggest change I have noticed is that the water bowl has looked like this all week,

instead of this.

Coasters are still being given (loud) tours of the house, dropped on me at all hours, as well as being kept very close and greatly loved.

It would seem she knows Sadie isn't here to get presents anymore.

What a tender, sad post. Except for the coasters being dropped loudly. That made me chuckle.

Poor Oribel... yes, the loud tours is amusing. Of course, this from a generally amusing feline.

I'm sure she misses her pal. And what is up with the LOUD carry 'packages'? One of our cats does the same thing. Silly cats ;).

Aw. Off to find my kleenex. :(

Barb----I am so sorry about your loss! Do you have time to have coffee with me sometime this week or next??
Let me know. Sending you love.
