This photo was taken on Katie's 11th birthday. She would be with us for another six years until chronic kidney disease finally claimed her. Born a feral kitten along with her brother, Bubba, she always retained some of her feral qualities and chose only to bond with me. The trust that she offered me remains one of the most precious gifts I've ever received. I loved her so very much! She took a huge piece of my heart with her when she continued on her journeys. I miss you, Princess Katie-cat!
