Ruaidh, pronounced Roy, was always the friendly one, while Rowan was always a little shy of strangers. Still, she was my constant couch companion while I was pregnant (both times). If you knew her and she knew you, she was cuddly.
That's her in the front, Ruaidh in the back.
Sure, she had her moments . . .like when she was laying next to you and sucking on her feet. She'd appear out of nowhere to be your little feline speedbump.
Folks, tonight she died. I'm not quite sure what was wrong, but she was gasping for breath and moaning. Every now and then she'd have a seizure. We all took turns sitting with her to let her know we loved her. She passed her final moments on a pillow.
Rowan, I'll miss you. Scott will miss you. The kids will miss you. You were an incredible kitty. May your spirit return to grace us.
We love you, Rowan. Thank you for blessing our lives.
