Snowflake

I didn’t write about this when it first happened, and then about when I was ready to a greater disaster befell our community in the loss of a dear friend, so I waited a little more. Now I feel OK about sharing that our little white cat Snowflake was hit in the road and killed about two weeks ago. Here are some pictures of him:April 28 snowflake on the rocksApril 28 snowflake 1April 28 snowflake looking

All the animals we live with are precious to us, the tame and the wild. Snowflake never was very tame. You had to be sneaky and quick to pick him up, and he always squirmed to get put down. He’d disappear like magic if any stranger came around. But the cold brought him inside every winter to curl up by the stove, and he was good company in the gardens when we worked outside. We’ll miss him.

    Ah Anne, I am sorry. He was a very aloof looking cat too. I gotta tell you though about the picture of him ‘snoozing’ on the wood pile; he was just waiting for some delicious little chipmunk to pop out. Be well my Friend.
