our teetsie is missing...
you've seen this girl before...
well...so far memorial day weekend has been dampered by the fact that this big loveable lady, our 13 year old cat Cleo, has suddenly vanished.
she is a very sweet and lazy cat who never wanders, so we're racking our brains trying to think what could have happened to her. you might recall that last year around this time we lost our precious little boy bandini...is there something wild in this neighborhood snatching cats? the idea freaks me out a bit. or maybe i'm just watching way too much twin peaks lately.
anyway i miss cleo! her favorite spot to plop and stay awhile is right here on our pillows:
she is kind of the leader of our little cat community around here (that's her on the left just a couple weeks ago) and the other two gals are lost and lonely without her.
we call her clee clee, teetsie, or teets. addie calls her "gypsy eyes," or "gypsy princess."
she would be loving hanging out and rolling around on the this sunny sunday with me.
i miss her dreadfully.
i keep thinking i see her at the door doing this:
she was declawed years ago (before i inherited her) which makes it extra scary that she is missing.
but it also makes me long for the soft little sound of her rubbing her paws on everything: the screen door, my backpack, a plastic bag, the wooly yellow rug. she is a touchy-feely sort of cat!
i also just love her pleasant peaceful little chirpy meow around the house and the way she relishes eating and snuggling. she is such a sweetheart and my heart is broken over this.
one last thing, remember my lover-boy cat stormy who died around new years?
cleo was his best friend/life partner. they snuggled blissfully for hours a day.
after his death she became more affectionate toward us humans in her life (though she's always been a sweetie) but i still don't know if she ever got over losing her companion.
however, she has maintained her sweet happy healthy attitude and just loves being loved.
well, whatever happens please pray for cleo and send good energy.
i'm really trying to think positive and stay optimistic.
sorry for being glum...
happier posts are on the way.
