Seven years ago in September, I began blogging. Shortly after that, I “met” (online) another blogger, Pam, who co-wrote her blog, One Spoiled Cat, with her ginger kitty, Sammy.
Pam and I became fast friends and began emailing each other every day. She and her husband, Dave, live about three hours from us. Motor Man and I have met them several times for lunch and antiquing, they visited and stayed overnight in our little town several years ago, and last summer, we gave them a quick tour of the Outer Banks, including a visit to “my” wild horses.
Sadly, Sammy passed over Rainbow Bridge last December. Pam continued to write her blog, keeping Sammy’s memory alive. When she and Dave were ready, Angel Sammy “arranged” for them to be adopted by a new ginger kitty, whom they named Teddy. And now, the title of her blog is Two Spoiled Cats: Sammy and Teddy are co-authors.
Although emailing is a wonderful means of keeping in touch, sometimes you just need to see each other in person….and share a hug. So yesterday, my Motor Man drove three hours each way so that we could visit Pam and Dave. AND…..I could meet their new kitty, Teddy.
And what a love bug he is.
Sammy was always very shy, so we never had a chance to meet him. But Teddy certainly isn’t shy and greeted us soon after we arrived.
I LOVE this picture of Pam, but I hate that Teddy’s eyes reflected in the camera’s flash.
We forced ourselves to leave Teddy long enough to go have a yummy lunch with Dave and Pam in downtown Warrenton.
Afterward, we toured the Fauquier County museum at the old jail, portions of which were built in 1808. It’s reportedly haunted, and although I can’t attest to that, it is….spooky.
We then returned to Pam and Dave’s for more Teddy time. (Note the red laser dot between his paws.)
I am so thankful for the friendship Pam and I share, and that our husbands enjoy each other’s company.
We’re already looking forward to our next get-together. Hopefully SOON.
