Natalie Alexander 1991 - 2005

Our cat Natalie is finally at peace. Just recently, I joked about her ferocious lip-smacking in the blog but her condition began to deteriorate rapidly at the end of last week. She began to have difficulties moving, and she was staring into space a lot. It was a very tough call to make, but yesterday our super vet, Dr. Tim Armstrong, came by the house in the morning and put her to sleep while we held her. We set aside a special place in the back yard and buried her there.

Without Natalie, the house is much quieter. She was a loud cat who constantly meowed and "barked" at us. We think that Pekoe and Riley are in a bit shock because they don't know what to do without their noisy sibling. We're definitely adjusting to the quiet, which I imagine will change dramatically in only 48 days(!). Thanks to my folks who took us out last night to the French Picadilly, that really helped, it was good to laugh a bunch .
