Life is made up of meetings and partings. That is the way of it.
-- Kermit, Muppet Christmas Carol
In honor of Hug Your Cat Day 2014, I'm featuring the last photo taken of Tara and I together, and the first taken with Truffles.
This picture was taken on Christmas Eve 2012. I knew it would be our final Christmas together and it was a bittersweet day. Six months later she was gone. What I wouldn't give to hold her in my arms one more time.
This one was taken on a much happier day...this is the very first time I held Truffles on the day that I adopted her. It was obviously love at first sight, and that love continues to grow every single day.
