This update is for Sophie (and long overdue!!). :)
A few months back, we got Jake and Ella Kate both a kitten.
A few short weeks later, Dot (EK's cat) disappeared. She was a wonderful kitty so we suspect someone else found out just how wonderful she was! ;) That's the downside of outdoor pets in a subdivision I guess. It's awful hard to keep them at home! Ella Kate didn't get too upset over it so we just considered ourselves lucky to still have one kitten left.
Jake's kitty, Harry, seems to be here for the long haul. He is the BEST cat (they both were!). We were very worried about Harry for a couple of weeks after Dot left because all he did was sit on the front stoop and cry. It was so sad!
But soon the neighbor across the street got a kitten and they became the best of friends! If we don't see Harry in the yard, he is always across the street "visiting" his buddy. Likewise, his friend spends a lot of time visiting us!
Here are the last pictures we have of Dot!
