It is with sad regret to announce that I lost my Snowshoe Siamese, Alexis last night after having her in my life for 17 wonderful years. It tears me apart because as we all know, they are like one of the family.
Today was so bad that I didn't even go in to work. My weekend was horrible as I watched her just go downhill fast. She had no disease...just old age, but it's still hard.
My beautiful princess, Alexis
In her favorite spot - on the arm of the couch so she could be within petting reach of Daddy's chair. She never was a lap cat and was always shy because she had been abused before I adopted her and her sister.
Very timid and shy because of the abuse that her previous owners idiotic, stupid teenage friends did to her (the owner said that they put her in a laundry hamper and a dryer one time - uggh). Due to that, she was always skittish and never wanted to be picked up - even up until the very end.
Her sister was the exact opposite and loved people and affection whereas Alexis pretty much shied away from strangers (although she would let Michael pet her). She would only come to you on her terms and one of the deals was the arm of the couch (almost an arm length away), because she was too shy to sit in anyone's lap, including mine!
