I'm very broken up today. One of my favorite toys, Dot, has passed. I think she may be a friend of yours too. How I will miss the sassy red spot of light that was my Dot.
Dot has been my friend for years. She is very mysterious. She appears out of nowhere, often when I least expect to see her... always when my parents are home (It's like she's drawn to their energy). I think she must visit other cats too, cause I've seen pictures of other cats playing with her.
When she comes by, she races around the house as I follow closely behind her. Just when I think I have her... I'm left with nothing.
She used to race all over the furniture, but she's aged right along with me, and I noticed she was slowing down recently... just raced on the floor, and she seemed less bright. I almost caught her a few times.
I noticed yesterday that Mom was whacking her house (a small red metal cylinder) and looking inside to see if she was in. Suddenly Dot appeared right on Mom's face (boy was Mom surprised when I pawed her cheek). Dot seemed to keep going back in the house, and Mom had to keep knocking it to have Dot come out.
"I think Dot's battery is dying Finny..." Mom said in gentle tones, and then Dot was gone.
Please join me in a moment of silence. I hope she is playing with cat's over the bridge.
