One black cat
Lonesome for playmate
Missing spry princess
Seeley appeared out of nowhere (as most of them do) at the beginning of the Spring. He and YaYa immediately bonded. He and she would run, chase and tumble about the yard. Wherever we would see one during the day – we did not have to look far to find the other.
This was great for YaYa, as she had not connected with another cat for play. She allowed visitors, stayed out of their way; observing their movement without interacting with them. Seeley was different.
Earlier in the week, while YaYa was in the midst of her transition, Seeley was not far away from her. When she was under the house, he stationed himself at the opening. During her last half-hour, he joined me in the circle around YaYa; I was singing to her. Once she crossed over, he quietly left us to return to his spot on the porch.
Since Tuesday evening, the energy on the porch has yet to readjust … for Seeley or for us. We assure him, if he desires, he is welcome to stay. We thanked him for the timing of his arrival and for becoming YaYa’s playmate. Reflecting back over the past few months — YaYa was a happy girl! Unfortunately, we now have one lonesome guy!
