Maria, August 1, 1990 - February 9, 2010
The most loving kitty and a member of our family. She will be missed.
Update 11/15/2010. Maria's Story.
Tony mentioned that the guys in the metal shop were feeding a stray black kitten. He wondered if he should bring it home to make friends with Jackie, who was giving her stepfather a rough road to travel. I think I said no. Anyway, I arrived home from shopping with Bobby to find Jackie and Tony using one of my best towels to dry off a kitten. The bathroom was a mess. The two of them were thrilled because they gave the kitten a bath revealing that she was a tabby when they thought she was black. Bobby was leaving for his first year at USC, so we decided the kitten would be his - a playful link to home. He named her Maria. She was affectionate, unflappable, even-tempered, and mature beyond her years. She scoffed at the antics of "lesser" cats and remained haughty until she wanted attention. She was a great companion. She is missed.
