This has been a very difficult week for Jim and me. We lost our kitty of 11 years to cancer this week. As Jim said, there is no better kitty than Pyewacket. She showed up at our door one day. I tried to sweep her off the porch. She wouldn’t go. It was like she chose us. No one else would work for her. And Jim fell in love with her almost immediately.
A few weeks after she joined the family, we had to leave due to Hurricane Rita. We couldn’t find her and Jim would leave without her. We found her in the car! Well! She got her first trip up to Austin. She loved travel. LOL!
I am glad she didn’t take no for an answer. She was the smartest kitty I ever met. She had a ton of personality. She loved people. Most cats hide when they see new people. Not the Pye. She would be out there snuggling up to them. And she loved her agility training.
She was great with our son. He had been sick for a long time. She slept with him. When you saw my son, you would see the Pye. She was very protective of Carlitos. Very loving. She was our penny from Heaven, and we will miss you Pye!
