In Memoriam, Elvie

I am sorry to report that Elvira Kitteh (as we first named her) or Elvie is with us no more.

She was a little outdoor cat who came to the back window with Mr. Popplethwaite, but for whom we found a home, with a kind-hearted and generous friend.

Elvie was a turbulent outdoors cat, but a happy indoors cat, and for the brief period of time she got to live the life of an indoor cat, brought joy to her person and friends.

Apparently, she suddenly started losing weight and appetite, and when our friend brought her to the vet, she was diagnosed with a large malignant tumor.

We are richer for having known her, and though saddened by her loss, I myself am grateful she chose our yard to wander into.
