Pointy Ears and Long Tails

Gabby_ (6)I find cats to be so engaging and endearing. They have standoffish ways and I don’t like their sharp teeth and claws but still, I love seeing them.

Over the last six months, a neighbor’s cat befriended us. She would look for us as we took our periodic walks and herd us over to her favorite territory. We’ve spent a whole lot of time sitting on the cold winter sidewalk petting, hanging out together and listening to her purr.

She (with her family) moved last month and although I do not miss the fur on my hands & face and in my nose, I do miss those pointy ears and her thumping tail.
