I’ve gotta admit, it’s pretty tough for me to know that Lisa is not in her spot, in the chair, keeping the world company. I don’t like the chair being empty. Leaving it empty as a memorial may be okay for some, but I’m not big on that type of thing. When it’s empty, it’s just another reminder of her loss. I don’t need visual reminders, my heart and head know she’s gone.
So, I tried my hand this morning at exposing some of the kitties to this nice spot.
First was Oliver.
He wasn't real thrilled with the prospect, he wanted me to let go and he wanted down right now. Then I tried Charlie.
Nope, he doesn't want to stay there.
Then I figured I'd change the blanket to a fresh, clean one.
I picked up Lorelei from her resting spot on the plastic files next to my monitor and put her in the chair.
Hm. She's not immediately jumping down. She's actually kneading the blanket.
She settles in.
She stays settled in.
She starts to nap. Let's see if she likes it enough to come back to. It's quiet, it's warm and it's in the office. It's a nice cozy spot for a pretty little girl.
