My Faveorite Picture of Shelley

If you look closely you can see that Shelley's ears are twitched backward, that's because he heard me taking the photo... God, he was a great cat. In every apartment we ever lived in, he would sleep in the bathroom sink. When I did the dishes he'd curl up on my feet and meow at me. When I came home from wherever I might have been he ran to meet me at the door. The color of his fur brought tears to my eyes because he was so handsome and orange. When he was a kitten he would lay on my chest, put his head beneath my chin and purr, purr, purr. I loved him, I love him still, with my whole heart. A few nights ago I dreamed he was with me in the yard of my apartment where I live now. I said to him, I am glad you are still with me.
