Yesterday was a very sad day in our house. Our cat, Slippery, had been "missing" since Friday evening and we were very worried that he had gotten locked in one of the neighbors garage. Instead we discovered that he had died in his sleep in a corner of one of the bedrooms. All pets are special, but Slippery was an especially special cat. Slippery was born in Marvin & Mason's bedroom closet in the Spring of 2001. His mother Destiny has always been an ill tempered cat, but Slippery was always sweet & loving.From the time he was a very small kitten, he has been Maggie's cat. She was less than a year old when he was born & they have always been inseparable. He would let her hold & cuddle him for hours on end. He rode in the doll stroller, he wore hats, whatever Maggie wanted, Slippery was the her willing playmate.
Our house feels very empty without his presence. The little girls are comforted by the idea that he is with our beloved dog, Star, in Heaven. The rest of us are still really struggling with the suddenness of this loss.
