SCRABBLE (ca September ? 2002 –February 5, 2020)
Scrabble is gone, 18 years after she was born to a mother we never met somewhere in Central Maine. She came to us November of 2003, when we lived in Winslow, adopted from a Waterville Humane Society outplacement in a Fairfield, Maine pet supply store — and knew nine of our other cats — details perhaps later — eventually becoming the respected elder cat in a four cat household, a post she held for almost exactly five years, guiding the other cats through the exciting move to a new home.
Her last few days were spent as she’d spent so many others, doing her rounds as best she could and sleeping a lot; she did get to the deck yesterday to do her stretches and to visit with some slightly re-greened oat grass that had taken advantage of a couple sunny warm days. That she couldn’t continue those rounds had become obvious and she departed with a dignity befitting an elder cat, her devoted people with her as her vet of over a dozen years officiated.
