@foodycatAlicia Urchin is magnificent. I'm in love with her tail. Although, that coat looks like a grooming nightmare!I've been thinking a lot about this guy lately. George was a feral kitten I managed to "tame" and adopt about four years ago. He taught me a lot about the value of patience and perseverance, because he was a skittish little boy and took a while to warm up to me. He unfortunately passed away around this time last year -- I took him to the vet because of a urinary obstruction, and got the dreaded phone call that he'd passed away in the night. The cause? A rare, genetic heart condition. They told me it would have claimed him sooner or later, but it was so sudden and devastating. I adopted the new girl, Gracie, not long after, and Chuck goofed his way into our lives recently. But I still miss my black boy something fierce.I am grateful we got to have three wonderful years together, and thanks to George I've become an advocate for Trap-Neuter-Return programs, feral cats and black cats everywhere -- such wonderful companions, and they're adopted less than any other color of cat. RIP to George and all the other fur babies who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
