Lulu and Annie
I dreamed last night that I woke up and my cat was on my chest. I was surprised because she won’t come any farther than the wall to be fed since Morrie, my third dog, came to stay. My first cat, Lulu, moved out and in with the neighbors when I got my second dog. At any rate, I petted my cat, so glad to see her but wondering how she got into the house. Then suddenly another cat jumped up on the bed . I saw that it was Annie, my youngest cat. So who was the other one??? I opened my eyes to see it was Lulu who had come back to visit. I was so happy to have them both together again and we lay there (in the dream) for a long time. When I woke up I was still pleased that I’d seen Lulu after all these years, then realized it was a dream.
Both of the girls displayed an interest in my work, although Annie had a bit more of a technological bent.
One day, I caught Lulu giving Annie climbing lessons. Here she is between the glass and the screen, so there was little danger of falling, but some danger of not being able to extricate herself.
For advanced lessons in climbing, they moved to the pistachio tree. Yes. You can believe your eyes. Lulu does have one green eye and one blue one.
Last night when I was out to dinner I ran into Lulu’s “new” parents who told me she’d been very ill and asked me how old she was. They were surprised to discover that she’ll be 15 years old in a few months. They thought she was much younger. But, alas, they told me she has been very very ill and has not been eating which never happens with her. I am afraid to call to see if she passed in the night and came to visit me one last time.
