August 10th was the 3rd anniversary of the death of our Mommy's beloved Muddy. She said she forgot about it this year until yesterday so she thinks that it must be getting easier. I think it's just because she has us Monkeys to see and think about every day, so it's easier to forget. Mommy said that the hurt seems to be going away but the love never fades.
She said she thinks Muddy visited her a couple of months ago when she woke up in the middle of the night to a cat head-butt and Samson and I were nowhere to be seen. Muddy, if you're visiting, wake me up too! I've got some cool toys we can play with.
This picture makes Mommy smile because it was shortly after he had been shaved so his hair is all short. He was trying to clean himself but there were just some places he couldn't reach!
She still misses you, Muddy!
Muddy's departure meant that it was not long until my arrival. Yep, my Gotcha Day is on Sunday! The Powers That Be sent me to Mommy only 6 days after he left because she was a real mess. Of course, sending a Tortie is one of the most efficient ways to get the job done right. Mommy wrote about my Gotcha Day quite recently, so I won't bore you with the details.

We'll be celebrating my Gotcha Day on Sunday, so hopefully you can pass by!
P.S. We just found out that Bugsy from The Kitty Krew is having surgery today to remove his eye so please send purrs and good thoughts over for him!
