"Shorty came into our lives in 2013. She had been a stray but was tame and sweet. She liked to be with us, and she liked our dog, Sasha. She would meow loudly outside our bedroom door, demanding to come in. She sat beside me on the sofa, wanting to be part of the family. She wanted treats when Sasha got a treat, and she would wait on mats by doors until we would return from walks or a closed room. She was always gentle and sweet with us, never biting or using her claws. I miss her terribly. Love you, Miss Shorty."
