Remembering Ruby: That Time When Ruby Got in Trouble When We Had a Dinner Guest


Not a day has gone by since Ruby passed away that I haven’t been flooded with memories. Some make me cry, some make me smile, and every single one is precious. I’ll periodically share some of these memories so you can take a trip down memory lane with me.

The photo above goes back a couple of years, to when I had a friend over for dinner and a movie. As we were settling down in the living room after dinner to watch the movie, Ruby got a little too exuberant about showing her affection for my friend and headbutted her right when she lifted her cup of hot tea to take a sip.

But rather than me retelling the story, why don’t you read Ruby’s account of what happened next.

    I love how you keep Ruby’s memory alive with stories! I just learned yesterday that my cat may have kidney disease-he’s only 6 and my best friend. We’re trying a special food and will recheck labs in a few months…while my first reaction is to be stressed and sad, this reminded me today that we need to live like our kitties do..appreciating the present moment and collecting sweet memories!

    Precious memories! I remember when you posted about Ruby’s escapade. Much too adorable to get mad at!

    It’s nice to see you having a “little stinker” memory of Ruby which makes me think your heart is starting to heal. Keep those bittersweet memories going about your precious baby.

    What a little stinker to cause such a mess. But it makes a fun story to tell.
