We were lucky enough to adopt Heidi and her brother, Scarecrow, in April
1988. Scarecrow passed a few years ago and Heidi, the snooty calico,
missing her brother, dramatically changed her personalily. Suddenly,
the cat who was expert at ignoring all of us, became the most loving, sweet,
personalble cat. She was with a family member at every opportunity,
sleeping on Richard's lap at every chance. She loved Richard, Eric,
Melissa, Lindsay and I with no reservation. We worked hard to extend
her life, trying to make it as pleasant as possible. But, two years
ago, Heidi's kidneys began to fail. We gave her an IV nightly,
flushing out her kidneys. But, the quality of her life became
questionable recently and we had to let her go. She will always be
loved and remembered with love and joy. She joins Scarecrow, now.
They can keep each other company. We enjoyed her company for almost 19
