Leopold here has a little story. I painted him for my MIL's 90th birthday next week. This sweet cat used to be a neighbor. All summer when he felt like visiting my MIL he would come sit in the window and peer in to see if anyone was home. If the garage door was open he would come to the people door and knock until she would let him in. He would stay a few hours or a few minutes. Whatever was "his" schedule. She kept treats and a special scratch box for him. He is quite a friendly cat.
Unfortunately Leopold's family moved away a couple of weeks ago. My poor MIL is so sad losing her furry friend. He was always a bright spot in her day. We have offered to get her a cat and keep up with shots etc although she could well afford to do so herself. She just doesn't want the responsibility at this point in her life. She sure misses Leopold though.
Please say a prayer for my MIL who is finding it difficult to cope with losing her husband just a couple of years ago, turning 90 and missing her furry friend.
