A Southern Girl Trying to Make a Difference in Sin City

Today I am longing for a simpler time or place.  Being a responsible adult and pet parent is not always what it is cracked up to be.  David and I made the difficult decision to send our Pekoe to meet her fur siblings (Spenser, Xora, and Kittle) at the Rainbow Bridge earlier today. For those of you who did not know Pekoe, she was batshit crazy.   From the time she reached outside the confines of her cage in a local pet store and grabbed me by the arm, I knew she was going to be around for a while.  No one ever believed us when we told them that you had various psychosis and neurosis, but we knew.  Oh, how we knew, and we loved you to the sky and back again anyway.  In my wildest imagination, I never would have predicted that she would have us as her parents for eighteen years.  Our house will never be the same without her incessant meowing and bad hair days. Goodbye, sweet Pekoe, you lived a long, spoiled life (as all animals should). You will be missed immensely and are loved forever.

  1. Batshit crazy, but so sweet. I’ll miss the way her fur always stood on end as if she had just put her par in a light socket. I’ll miss her giant crazy eyes. I’ll miss stories of her silliness. Sometimes, the crazy ones are the best ones. RIP, sweet Pekoe.
