A bad day for me
How many cats like to sit on the edge of the tub during bath time? My Scout Finch loved watching my daughter take her bath. She only tried to climb in with her one time – after that she just watched and waited for the water to drain to take a quick drink. She was a sweet, mischievous little cat. She passed away unexpectedly early this morning and my heart is broken. I was never a big fan of cats, but two years ago, Boo Radley showed up on my doorstep and converted me. Last January, my daughter decided Boo needed a friend, so we went to a shelter and fell head over heels for a little gray and white kitten. We brought her home and named her Scout Finch. (Seeing a name trend here?) I took Scout to the vet yesterday and they performed exploratory surgery last night. They found that she had eaten a piece of thread that caused complications in her intestines. We thought she was going to pull through, but she didn’t. I loved this little cat like crazy and her absence has left a hole in our family. Bea, Dani and my mom think we need to go find us a kitten – the sooner the better. Someone needs all that love we gave Scout Finch. My kids think so too, so we’ll see. Today was not an ordinary day for me. It was a really bad one.
