Admiral Janeway, October 30, 2017. (Photo added to this post on February 12, 2018.)
I was noticing, this morning, as I turned to get up this morning, how much more spry Admiral Janeway, my cat, seemed than I. As I sat down at my desktop system, I think she brushed my calves with her tail, as she sometimes does, and I would have reached down to offer a pat.
She went outside, presumably, to find a spot in the sun and, having found it, went to sleep. She did not wake up. My mother found her this evening.
