Our kitty Bijou passed away on the evening of July 2nd. She was six years old. I got her from the pound in Austin when she was a tiny kitten. She was a wonderful pet--very low maintenance, sweet, loving, and beautiful. She liked having her belly rubbed, lying on a sunny windowsill, and playing with her favorite toy (a fishing pole-type thing with a foil "lure" at the end of it). Every morning she cuddled my neck. Now it's hard to get up knowing that I won't hear her little paws running to greet me. Goodbye, sweet Bijou. We miss you so much.
