A Tribute to Girlfriend

Girlfriend adopted us more than seven years ago and slowly won his way into our hearts as well as into our house, our cat allergies notwithstanding. We named him while he was still semi-wild, and by the time we got to know him up-close, the name had stuck. When he got his leg broken last December we learned from the vet that he had feline AIDS and would be vulnerable to infections. At that point he became a full-time indoor cat, but that was not protection enough for him. He died the night of March 17 after several days of becoming progressively weaker and is buried in the back yard, his grave marked with his favorite toys.
