So we had this cat. We got her in 1998 when she was a kitten and the kids were little. We named her Dinah after Alice in Wonderland’s cat. Dinah was mostly Emily’s cat. She loved to cuddle and sleep with us. She had a season of not being nice and we often told her we were going to put her in the garbage. But by the time we moved to CA she had become part of the family.
Dinah had a long life and was well loved; I think she was good owner. (Cats own people and not the other way around). I miss her, and her absence really makes me an empty nester. Loved that girl!
