With all of my other lost cats, the pain of missing them started to soften after about a year. So far, that hasn’t happened with Ruby. Memories are a funny thing: sometimes, they bring smiles and a warm, fuzzy feeling. Other times, they’re like a punch to the gut. However, today’s memory is definitely of the kind that brought a smile.
It goes back to October 2011, six months after Ruby joined our family. Ruby was a skilled bug hunter, but that time, the bug she encountered caused quite a few problems for her.
