Calvin’s Passing had a larger effect than any of us imagined.

On Sunday, we took him and the children to the knoll and burried him in their pet area. We had a small ceremony, and sang some songs, and we all helped dig/fill the hole. We were all sad (naturally), but the children really seemed more at peace afterwards.

Eris (the skittish one) is now the affectionate one. She has also attached herself to Rob – which I am glad for – his lap was too empty for a day or two there.

G has asked repeatedly when a kitten will come – I have reminded him that we still have 4 cats who we love very much – and that’s quite a lot!

Other things are also being grieved, but .. This too Shall Pass.



Today Calvin the Cat passed suddenly and unexpectedly.

We are saddened by this loss. 


All hail Calvin Lord Fuzzybottom, Catcher of Birds, Patriarch of our Felines.



The idea that we keep going, even when it seems impossible.

I strive to be better than I am.
