We Lost One of the Great Ones Today

Bopper Edge-Taylor passed away at 11 a.m. today. He was a friend of mine for 18 years, since I first met the then-frisky kitten at Renae’s apartment in Madison, Wisconsin. Bopper had more personality and intelligence than most people I know, and Bridgeport’s going to be a little gray without him. Renae, Greg, and Molly, my heart goes out to you.

We’ve lost a lot of great ones in the last year, so today’s post also is dedicated to you and your cats or dogs.

And I haven’t given up hope that Sammy’s coming home.
