You know what they say about pets - "If one dies get a replacement." Not!! I have loved every single one of the numerous cats and dogs that have filled my arms, emptied my pocketbook and left a great big hole in my heart when they have gone. And so it was with my beloved Benny, the Red Menace. He died last week after struggling with the debilitating effects of feline lower urinary tract disorder for the past five or six years. LOur wonderful veterinarian had used every treatment she could to extend his time with us. But last week it was time to let him go.
So I didn't replace Benny - he is not replaceable. But I did find room in my heart for another red cat. His name is Patrick or Paddy for short.
