To Glennis

I’ve known a number of cats in my day, but none quite like you, Glennis. Your attitude and intelligence set you apart, and while I only had the pleasure to know you for a few years, you were a constant companion nonetheless. I’ll miss the afternoon naps on the couch with you curled up on my chest, the sound of your meow when I walked in the room, the times when you’d sneak attack the other cats. And I’ll miss cradling you in my arms and rubbing your belly while you purred and nuzzled my arm.

It was my honor to hold you in my arms one last time while you passed into your final rest. I love you, and I will miss you, beautiful Glennis.
