Today we said goodbye to Isabela (“Poopy-Kitty”). Found abandoned in a park at 5 weeks old, she turned out to be the best, most non-cat-like cat, ever! She grew up with dogs and enjoyed messing with them (bopping them on the head or butt as they passed by, or not allowing them to pass from room to room). She was scrappy and loved to be outside (she let herself in and out the dog door), defending her property against all cats (and squirrels) who dared to come into her territory.

She had a fun, very long, full life. She was just a few months short of her 20th birthday. We’ll miss her.
