Remembering Callie - Queen of Her World

My Calico was chocolate-caramel swirled, and the inside of our house was all her world! Her whole concern was just in getting stroked or fed. She'd summon me each morning, jumping on my bed and reaching out with one white paw, she'd tap my head! (This is around the time several years ago that Callie had to be put to sleep due to cancer. She lived 18 wonderful years with us!) For Rick Parise's Five-Line Poem Poetry Contest

    She sounds like one Cool Kitty. It is hard losing pets, they are family. Sorry for your loss.

    She lived such a wonderful simple life. Sometimes I wonder if we were all meant to have such simple happy lives? Warm thoughts, Ralph

    She sounded like a winner to me... and I imagine she was... with an owner who remembered her like this.

    I hope you find a nice kitten or a cat Andrea. Sounds like Callie was a dear one. I just had another mouse, I could sure use one around the house. :) Yuck! Little #@^&%@*'s. :) Just a few days left till, well we'll just pray for those who are suffering. Peace.
