Quite a few feline-themed posts lately, I know. Sadly, I found out that while I was in Italy my childhood kitty, Krissy, passed away. She was my first pet and we had been attached at the hip (so to speak) since I was 9 - to say I’m devastated would be an understatement. How can anyone explain the bond they form with a pet, anyway? Words seem trivial.
Pictured is Coco, in a virtually identical picture that I took of Krissy when I first began this project. The whole family, people and pets alike, is at a loss for a beloved pet that was so important to us. It’s amazing how animals can shape your life, and how strongly their absence can be felt.
