Baby Girl quietly entered eternal rest this evening. She passed comfortably in the familiarity of her own living room. She was quite a kitty, and will be missed by all her human family. She rarely meowed - she had a little squeak that she would give you if you told her, "Squeak, Baby Girl".
She was a stray kitten that my daughter took in, mama kitty was feral and had moved on to leave her remaining kitten to fend for herself. Since Stephanie was pregnant it was appropriate that she named the kitten "Baby". Somewhere in the coming years we added "Girl" to her name! She lived with S for the first year of her life, spending most of her time in a little basket in a sunny window.
She spent the next 11 years with me, but we all thought of her as S's cat. She didn't ask for a lot, but was always around and friendly with everyone. She will be missed, but what wonderful memories she left us with! How thankful I am for my little companions and celebrate each of their lives.
