A Cat Named Blue
A cat Named Blue is a picture book that I wrote to honor this cat. Blue. He died yesterday on my anniversary. My heart has broken and I have cried my eyes out. You see this cat is without a doubt the sweetest little guy in the world. My picture book about him came about because some strange dog had chased him up one of our
trees. Blue couldn't get down. For two weeks he stayed in the tree. We called the fire department and they laughed. "We don't really get cats out of trees," they said. He finally came down on his own. And a picture book story was born.
Ivy took the pics of the ol' guy
wearing female doll clothing just
a couple weeks ago. Blue didn't mind. He loved her. She could do anything to him. She loved him, too. We all did.
Over the weekend I noticed he was having trouble breathing. He seemed pretty sick and his back leg was dragging. The vet kept him and on Tuesday when Gene called from Chapel Hill he said that Blue was doing much better. "You can bring him home tomorrow." Wednesday when I called to ask what time I could come, the vet told me I couldn't. That Blue had taken a turn for the worse. He finally came home yesterday. His final resting place is out back by the bridge. He loved to sun on the bridge. It was Blue's favorite place. I say all that and show you these pictures so that he can bring a smile to your face as he always did to ours. Thanks for reading my final tribute to A Cat Named Blue.
