Madison the Elder Cat – In Memorium February 4, 2018

In October of 2001 the superintendent of my building called me up and asked if I wanted a cat. It seems that a kitten had walked into the lobby of my building and just sat down. I rushed downstairs and found a little bundle of fur. And that was that. Fast forward almost 17 years and Madison crossed that very crowded rainbow bridge this week. Truth be told, she was not a very nice cat. That was part of her charm. She harrumphed around the apartment, hissed at her roommates and generally had a bad attitude. All of those aforementioned things made me love her even more. When she came to live with us I had two other cats, whom she learned to hate. A few years later Benny the dog came to live with us. She was not fond of him either. She outlived those animals and then got to share her space with kitten sisters Audrey and Roberta and eventually Jack the one-eyed dog. She did not like any of them either. Do I miss this grumpy cat? You bet.

The Binky Foundation is a private charitable organization (run by good friends of mine) dedicated to the protection of domestic and wild animals and the protection and expansion of their habitats. They have a Remembrance page  devoted to pets we have loved and lost. I have donated in the name of many of my friends’ pets. It helps this wonderful foundation do great things. I thought while you were waiting for the Super Bowl to start you might want to visit some of these Remembrances. All were beautiful animals who are still missed by their human families. I salute them all.
Benny,

Holiday OuttakeFor the past eight years I have been featuring Benny the dog on our annual holiday card.  With the addition of kittens Audrey and Roberta as the newest members of Casa Lobo, I attempted a group photo.  Many hats, bow ties and laughs later I present this year’s holiday card and some outtakes from our photo session.  Hope you enjoy their antics and wishing everyone a very happy holiday season.

Audrey:RobertaMeet my two new kittens – Audrey and Roberta.  They are seven weeks old and have been exploring every nook and cranny in my home.  They are curious about Benny the dog (he seems to like them a lot) and rightfully cautious about Madison the cat.  They are endlessly entertaining.  Enjoy!
