Today, at 5:30 pm, my little BudBud passed away, outside on our back deck, as Gary and I pet her and told her it was ok to go. We were all able to say our final goodbyes before her passing. She is buried under a Mimosa tree at the woodline of our field. As best as we can remember, she came to us in April of 1989. She was a wonderful cat, and will be missed. Our house already feels empty.
