RIP Callie: born April 27th, 1994, to Isabelle. Passed quietly in her sleep December 26, 2011, aged 17 years and 8 months; She lived a long and healthy life, for a cat; She was born in this house and lived here all her life. Callie caught many mice and birds; she vanquished strange cats; was never hit by a car, bitten by a dog, or even sick. She ruled her territory with an iron claw. She slept next to me when I was sick. She took many walks in the woods with me. She was beautiful. I shall miss her.
