My Tribute to My Cat and the Lessons She Taught

Last week we had to say goodbye to our beautiful Calico Persian cat, Callie. She reigned in our house with her regal beauty for fourteen years and as cats often do, set her own terms for our interaction with her. Caring for her was not without it’s challenges since she didn’t like to be brushed, a necessary routine for a Persian. I was the only one she’d tolerate and I mean tolerate and even that involved holding her firmly so she couldn’t escape.

I’d try to tell her that this is one of the costs of being beautiful. She didn’t buy it and responded with hisses when she got tired of the comb pulling at her long fur.
