Many of you have followed Sophies oddysey of going Blind and Deaf on December 9th! I'm sorry to have to report that she unexpectedly "Crossed the Rainbow Bridge" between 5:00 and 5:30 on February 21 while in the animal hospital undergoing testing! Sophie was a wonderful little 16 year old black and white Persian that we rescued from the Edison, NJ animal shelter almost three years ago. She was badly neglected and matted and the folks at the shelter were really pleased that we adopted her, as I believe she would soon be euthanized! Soon after we adopted her I had to undergo unexpected open heart surgery and that night she jumped up on the bed to keep Diane company through the night as though she knew something was not quite right! Throughout my recovery she would spend time with me but I was "not the Momma" and she soon became Diane's little girl although she allowed me to give her her meds three times or more a day and she would patiently sit at the door to her "Kitty" room to let me know she was hungary, or her food bowl was empty, or she didn't like that particular flavor of food! Yes, she was spoiled rotten but she gave so much love and affection in return! We will forever miss Sophie, on our bed, in her bed at the foot of our bed and we will never forget her!
