My long time followers may remember my friend Angela and her sweet cat Dresy. She is the young lady from Texas who I helped get all the mice out from her van while in Idaho and couple years ago. We traveled around together for a few months up to the day of the Great Solar Eclipse on August 21, 2017. Angela was in the area and were able to get together and visit last Sunday. This morning, five days later Dresy passed away.
I remember first meeting Dresy and when I touched him a flood of emotions swept through me. All I could think of was my dear Sinbad who had passed away less than a year before. Dresy felt so much like Sinbad did in his final years and my eyes welled up. So I had a deep attachment to Dresy. Beans got along with Dresy well once she understood he had no interest in playing and romping about.
I took these photos during our visit. When they returned to the desert a week earlier, Angela took him out for a walk. He purred right away. He hadn't purred in a long time she said. She felt he was happy to be back in the desert. Dresy looked really well from when I saw him last a little over a year ago. His medication and new diet seemed to be working. Dresy was working towards his eighteenth birthday later this year.
My eyes are watering up as I compose this. My thoughts are with my dear friend Angela.
