Bernadette regards the photographer with a semi-quizzical look.
Hakuna has gone off to the other side of the Rainbow Bridge, there to romp in the fields of catnip and stands of tuna trees with her sister Matata. And yet, Chez Elisson is not completely catless. Not yet.
That’s because Bernadette is gracing us with her presence... at least for the time being, while the Mistress of Sarcasm is here for an extended visit. Next week, when she heads back home to the Northeast, she’ll pack Bernie up and cram her into the car for the two-day drive.
Meanwhile, we get to enjoy the company of this exceptionally sweet kitty. She is, to be perfectly candid, somewhat reserved except when she is relaxing on a bed. There, the reserve vanishes and Bernie becomes a cuddly, squishy beast.
We will miss her when she’s gone. Doubly so.
