Yesterday, my lovely daughter lost her companion of 17 years.
Tracy, Bibi, and Binky
Bibi and Binky
Bibi, the Siamese cat came to live with her on Christmas eve, 2000. She was standing in line at the Honey Baked Ham Company and two kids had kittens they were giving away. She intended to give the kitten to her friend Katy, who had recently lost her cat, but the kitten had other ideas. It was cold that day, so she put him between her shirt and sweater to keep him warm. The rest, as they say is history. Bibi and Tracy formed a bond that lasted for 17 years. He was with her during some of the lowest times of her life. Always near, always comforting. He slept with her every night with her arm surrounding him until he became too old to get on the bed.
Bibi passed away in his sleep, comforted by my daughter and her husband’s presence. He will be forever loved and remembered.
