As most of you know I lost my beloved Nike back in late August. For twelve years he was there through it all. The moves, the up’s and downs, and just a true companion. I could never imagine the loss I would feel until he was gone. I had thought about it and I knew that someday it would come, but I always pushed it to the back of my mind figuring I would worry about it when that day came. Little did I know that day came all too fast and in the blink of an eye his health deteriorated and in a flash he was gone.


Loosing him has been a very surreal experience for me. I had many pets in my youth (predominately long haired black and white cats) but their presence was always overshadowed with school, extra curricular activities, and youth in general. Nike was my first real pet as an adult. It was my responsibility to take care of him. More importantly he saw me through my most awkward 20’s. A death of this nature is like loosing your right arm. Yes my twenties were gone some time ago, but together we weathered the storm.

October 29th was exactly two months since Nike died. Still difficult to see his photos I realized the best medicine was to get the closest replacement possible. Enter Harley the new Black and white kittie!


This is our introduction above at the pound. He slobbered all over me and couldn’t get enough hugs. And just like Nike he had been returned to the pound.  His purr is erratic and bumpy just like a Harley-Davidson so we named him Harley. He is perfect in every way and I am so glad to have found him. As my mom says, he has won the kitty lottery! Everyone adores him in my office and all he wants to do is hug and snuggle. What great therapy he is!


Here he is next to my desk. Is he not the cutest thing you have ever seen?  He is a year old and has a lot of growing to do but Harley is available for hugs and comfort whenever you need him!
