It is with great sadness that I write this post to pay tribute to a wonderful cat that I loved dearly and cared for for many years. Dear, beautiful Dominique.
Here come the tears.
To Dominique's family I send a hug and a thank-you for giving me the opportunity to get to know her as I did and to fall in love with her rather cautious but unique character.
It took time for me to win over this lovely cat but little did she know that I was stubborn, too. It was time well spent. :)
We became good buddies and she would greet me at the door and then lead me over to her wee basket that held her comb and toys. She loved to tuck in while we looked at magazines together. I'll always remember the first time she did that and how happy it made me feel to see her feeling safe. It was a break-through for both of us.
She was photogenic; maybe even a bit of a diva. She enjoyed when I captured her uniqueness with my camera. She was a poser.
So, "Farewell little beauty. Thank you for finally being 'won over' and enjoying our time together and may you now rest in peace."
With love and hugs, Deb
