I can’t add much to Teri’s beautiful memorial post, but I couldn’t skip posting on this topic altogether.
Oh Babycat. We knew when we decided to let her be an inside/outside cat that there was a risk, but even though her time of freedom was so brief neither of us regret the decision.
She changed as soon as she started spending more time outdoors. We often noticed how much happier and more relaxed she seemed. Before, she was always nervous, annoyed, and twitchy. She had the spirit to not trade too much of her freedom for petty conveniences and false security. We could use more people like that.
Goodbye Babycat; you’re in our hearts and you’re becoming part of our land now, and we’re grateful for all the ways our lives have woven together.
