So we’re 12 days into 2009 and I’m no closer to finding my lost sisters.  Actually, that doesn’t sound right.  I suspect they’re not really lost at all.  I bet they know exactly where they are.  It might be better to say I’ve been unable to locate my heretofore unknown sisters.  I still don’t know their names or where they are but the year is young and I hope to find them before Christmas rolls around again.

In the meantime…our little stray kitty who became such a big part of our family died from cancer in October.  We were heartbroken.  For a couple of really dedicated dog people, we became very attached to B.C.  I waited a few months and couldn’t stand it, a new kitty had to join the family.  Enter one pretty little calico now named Halle.  Scheduled to be put down, we arrived in time and now she’s sitting right next to me as I type (in fact she keeps trying to walk across the keyboard).  Now, she’s a bit skittish around the dogs — go figure — little kitty, two huge dogs.  Still, all things considered, she’s doing well and soon, I hope Halle, Shaggy and Falco will be doing fine together.

A new kitty is great although fear not, the search for the sisters continues…
