“The cancer has spread.” said the vet, “It’s time to put her down if you don’t want the cat to suffer.” So broken-hearted, we said goodbye to our beloved Lucy Gray.
Taking a walk a few days later we found ourselves in front of the ASPCA. We looked at each other and without a word we went in.
“We’re not ready for another cat yet.” we told the volunteer, “we’re just looking.”
With a knowing smile she led us to the kitten room.
(By the way, since my husband is a big baseball fan we named our new kitty Jackie Robinson.)
