It was not quite seven years ago when I first had the pleasure of meeting the Simon cats - Edloe, Nardo, Frisky, and Piper - in their very own domicile.
Those were sweet days. Matata still stalked the planet back then, and all was right with the world.
Alas, time marches on. Nothing is permanent, and the all-too-short lives of our Animal Companions will serve to remind us of this bitter fact when we refuse to admit it to ourselves. And now, the Fab Fur belong to the ages.
Ave atque vale, Nardo. May memories of good times with you - and the loving attention of Myst and Bruwyn - comfort Laurence and Gina.
