My Dad died on Monday and today I finally ventured out to the farmhouse where he and Mom have lived for many years. Mom and Dad both loved animals and kept many pets over the years.
These two house cats, Cali (short for Calico) and Mikey, stayed curled up on the sofa. Someone, probably Dave, Dad's twice a day caregiver, wisely put some of my Dad's shirts out where the kitties could catch Dad's scent.
Cali is usually found on another sofa, in the living room, close to Dad. Mikey's traditional place was on Dad's bed. Now, in their eminent catness, the lonesome kitties draw comfort from Stan's flannel shirts.
