Precious Kitty Nelson 2004 - 2008 Yesterday, we lost our cat to a speeding car on our street. Kitty was an important member of our family. She was the official lap-sitter, and she took that very seriously. She loved to be in the garage with D, or anywhere with Vicki. When I got out of my car after returning from work, she would run up to me and escort me to the front door and into the kitchen to be fed. Our little doggy Rascal was her best bud for the last 4 years, and it seemed that he was actually upset yesterday. D put kitty in a box in the backyard until Vicki got home, and Rascal laid down next to the box and stayed there. When the pool guy came, Rascal stood up by the box and watched him, as if to say, "Don't come over here." Telling Vicki when she got home from school was no treat, either. 10-year-old girls do not take these things well. We'll miss you, Kitty...and we love you.
