May the 4th is bittersweet for me

I began another post for today, but the date called for another:

The Good

Garfield (it’s good to be King)

Today is his 7th anniversary with me. When I was first introduced to him, he’d already chosen me: he kneaded my lap and then curled up in it.

He’s grown since this photo, but not a lot. He’s still, and will always be, my baby.

The Bad

When I got him, I’d just said Goodbye to Squeaky, a cat who’d been my companion for 18 years, and had to be put down.

I’m a Star Wars fan, but I can’t see today as whimsical.
