A sad anniversary

Today 12/14/2021 marks one year since my Cammie died. I still miss her so much. She was the sweetest, goofiest cat. Dog people loved her; she was so loving and entertaining.

She loved to poke her fangs through paper. Debit receipts were her favorite, but on more than one occasion I had to rescue lottery tickets from her little jaws.

She also loved sleeping on her back and getting belly rubs. She had the softest fur of any cat I ever petted. She was a chubby girl. I used to call her my chunkasaurus. When I first caught her sleeping on her back with her front paws curled and her rear legs poking upward, I told my roommates that she looked like a manatee. That pose was thereafter called, “Cammie’s manatee pose.”

Ribbons and stringy things were her favorite toy. One of her tricks was to get a ribbon looped onto the base of her tail and then prance around the house meowing as if she was announcing, “Lookie what I did!”

My chunkasaurus.

I miss you my sweet baby girl. ❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹
