For friends of Scrabble

As posted on Facebook by Steve Miller:

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.

  1. Oh gosh. I’m so very sorry for your loss, Sharon and Steve. Sending love and hugs from me and my kitty.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. A pet is part of your family and leaves a huge hole. I hope in time memory of Scrabble will comfort you.

  3. It’s always difficult to say Farewell to a furkid. Eighteen years is a long time, and leaves a big empty space. Glad she was able to leave with appropriate dignity.

  4. Ouch. Read this at work and was almost discovered weeping at my desk. My heart goes out to her devoted people, as well as her feline family who will not understand why their friend is gone. I wish you all the best.

  5. I am so sorry, Sharon and Steve. You both have had such a tough year. I won’t say I know what you must feel, because losing someone, 2 legged or 4, is different for everyone.

    On a happier note, I just got my copy of Infinite Stars: Dark Frontiers with Liaden: Dark Secrets. What a cracking story! I hope you write more about Kilsmythe and yo’Dira.
