Saying good-bye is never easy. The family's next oldest cat after Callista, Gianna, suffered a stroke last week and died from its effects today. The link goes to her photo at DeviantArt, with more details in the description. The real challenge, now, is trying to keep the family from adopting any of the cats that have been turning up on the front porch looking for free food. Liking cats is all well and good when it doesn't rip the checking account to shreds, and it would be nice if there were only five cats to trip over every day.
