I remember when we first met and I thought 2 things:
1) Gosh, she's beautiful
2) Damn that cat is old
I miss Hickers because he got even older and eventually went to live in kitty heaven. I miss LDB because she continues to be gorgeous but lives so far away in Portland. Whenever she tries to leave, the people of Portland revolt and stop her from going. You see, they have no sun up in Portland so they need all the pretty people they can get. When one tries to leave, everyone gets all bent out of shape.
Enjoy your birthday! I'll have some Cold Stone for you.
