Alethea & Athena

  • Mood:

Crossed my path

We had a visitor today! We were in the kitchen making lunch when Athena noticed something on the balcony. It was a little black cat! (Little in that it was smaller than Oreo and Page--it was most likely fully grown.) It actually looked a lot like Mimsy, except with slightly shorter fur. Athena opened the door to say hello, and it meowed a difficult-to-interpret meow. (Its voice was definitely not like Mimsy's.)

We all stared at each other for a while, and it made a move like maybe it was going to come in! But we weren't sure how to deal with that--it looked pretty healthy, but we had no way of knowing where it had been, and we didn't want to risk getting Oreo or Page sick. It would have been kind of neat, though. But anyway, it hopped off the balcony onto the roof of the parking lot and left. It hung out over the parking lot for a little while, but by the time I thought to get the camera, it was gone.

The most interesting thing about this encounter, though, is that today marks exactly one year since Mimsy passed away. We don't think it was a reincarnation of Mimsy (we've seen that cat around before), just an interesting coincidence. I do wonder if it means something... Hmmm...

Anyway, in honor of Mimsy,
I think we've already shared a few of our best pictures of Mimsy. Looking at the other pictures we have, I'm noticing that it's hard to find good ones of her not looking grumpy. Of course, now we realize that she was probably in pain most of the time we had a good camera. Poor Mimsy. I wish we had been able to get more pictures of her when she was more comfortable, alas.



Today I'm thankful for mysterious visits from adorable visitors, having pictures of Mimsy to remember her by, the lovely weather we had today, the new season of Castle starting tonight, and there only being one recap chapter in that volume of Higurashi.
