I miss her, though. It's eerie without the tinkle of her collar or the clack of her claws on the floor. My little boy keeps asking after her, and I keep expecting her to bullet into my lap.
My mom says that she's parked herself in a central location so she can keep her eye on the door to the room I occupy when I visit, keep her eye on the backyard and the front door, and that she's crying all the time. :o(
But I think it's got to be better for her than to have a 32 pound toddler trying to ride her like a horse, and she was starting to snap at him to back off. I really feel I did the right thing, but it's haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard.
