LC and AYLA: It has been 4 months since Skeeter went over The Bridge... We unnerstand that it had ta happen and all, but we still miss him bunches.
It just seems quiet without him. He wasnt efer a noisey cat, and he dint lord it over us or annything, its just that he was kinna the Central figure of the house. More than The Big Thing, if ya unnerstand... The Big Thing runs the place an all, but Skeeter was the Cat-In-Charge.
He taught us both howta hunt mousies and birdies, for example. An he would stop a fight with a catcall or even a sharp look. He allus made sure ta taste the evening meal first so we knew it was OK ta eat. An when we were done eatin, he would go back and lick the bowls clean so The Big Thing wouldnt put out less next time.
This is a picture of "Skeeter's Spot" 4 months ago. Its the spot where Skeeter spended his last time outside the day before goin over The Bridge. The Big Thing used a Fancy Stone to mark the spot until he made something more special. The plants on either side are big ones wif pretty flowers. The Big Thing says they will live many years.
We were glad to see the nice permanent marker today. It has his name onit in brass letters and is made of wood that doesnt rot. The kitty statoo is made of aluminum. It looks real nice...
LC: There are actually 3 of those nice big flowers in a row, so the other spot between them is reserved fer me when I go over The Bridge. Dont worry, I dont plan ta use it fer a while, but it is good ta know it is there.
