    I have had 2 Siamese, Cathy, both smart and crazy as loons! We got along extremely well, I might add. My first was Nigel (named after Nigel Hawthorne), and the second was Virgil, who was raised by his big brother, my first Maine coon - Cicero. Nigel died at 19! Poor Virgil died of kidney failure, but he was 14, so he'd had a beautiful life. I miss all my kittens.

    By the way, I had life put in perspective last night by a friend whose 18 year-old niece, a freshman in college, was killed in a freak car accident 2 days ago; the funeral is today and he and his sister are just inconsolable - I know they will be for countless years. Today I count the first among my blessings that I've been annoyed with my kids for a couple of days now that they're too busy to call their mom! I am indeed blest.

    Sorry for you friend, Maura. I lost my youngest daughter, Tracie to cancer. She was four. She would be 36, today. Of course, I know inconsolable. It does get better as time goes on. Your mind heals but never your heart.

    I've come as close to that as I ever want to, Cathy. I am SO sorry to hear about your daughter. I have never known the desolation I felt when we thought we were going to lose Henry when he was born - and it still hurts, so I can't imagine the depth of your pain - it feels like you're losing, or have lost, a part of yourself.

    But what a somber way to start a pretty day! Today, I am going to work on my ICU orchids and perhaps take a stroll through the Botanical Gardens. Sad as it can be, life is also precious and beautiful!!!!
