In memory of Berries





At the bottom of this blog, you'll see a dedication to Berries. Who was she? She was my childhood cat. I think of her often this time of year. She died in January of 2006 at the ripe old age of 19. These are the last photos I took of her in November 2005, with my nephew Jacob. As you can see, she loved Jacob and was not afraid of a five-year-old. I love the way she is looking at Jacob in the last photo; she looks so content.
I love all of my pets, past and present, but Berries has a very special place in my heart. I miss you, Mid.
