In Memory of Zelda

Zelda was my special girl, and I was her person; she was apprehensive about all other people, and it took years before she would sit on my husband’s lap….but we were forever bonded from day one. She loved to talk in multi-syllabic chirpy meows, and would do so as long as you interacted with her. She had a raspy, distinctive voice….what my husband called a “smoker’s meow”. I will miss our conversations, and the way she curled up on me whenever I sat or slept. She was special. She really was my baby. And I am forever grateful that she shared her life with me. Zelda, my sweet baby girl; you blessed my life for 16 years, and I will miss you always. Mama loves you!!!
