Harley (1996-2006) was a loving, friendly, self-confident cat who enjoyed the company of all people, particularly those who might be allergic. She leaves us following a mercifully short illness. I'm especially grateful to those who took care of her while I was gone last week, before she became ill, and who did a wonderful job--she loved the extra attention (and the tuna treats).
I'll miss the early morning love bites (when she wanted breakfast), and her three-stroke rumbly purr that earned her the name of Harley. She was a good friend to her former companion, Rupert, who often started fights with neighborhood tomcats that he couldn't finish. She is survived by her canine sibling, Maddie, and by me.
