Mango disappeared two weeks ago. I know he's gone forever. He's helpless. He doesn't hunt or climb trees and he has a habit of putting himself in danger and then just staring off into space. Mango is my cat. He adores me, or did anyway. Now he's gone. We had ten years together. He was going to be "put to sleep" because his owner died and nobody wanted him.
We were without power for three days, which really isn't bad considering that a lot of folks are still without power a week later. Seven trees came down near our house, but there was no damage. Nothing like a gigantic tree falling over in the yard to get your heart racing though.
With Mango gone and Bella probably gone too, I really don't feel like posting on my blog anymore. I'm thinking of deleting it altogether. I so miss Mango, he purred every time I got near him and always looked at me like I was his world. Nobody else loves me like that. Bella got real lovable over the winter, and I love her too, but I always knew that her heart was in the great outdoors and she would stay on the wild side.
We still have Taco and Sumari. Taco is always happy and loves everybody, and Sumari is independent, but she loves her humans too.
I'm not sure what I'll do with the blog, but if it's just gone one day, you'll know why.
