Sunday morning, we lost a member of the Ghostie household.

Nikki, my parents’ cat, has been suffering from increasing health problems. It saddens me to report that she has lost the good fight. Even though she was not mine, I will miss her terribly.


Although I rarely write of my beliefs, I know in my heart that the essence of what made her “Nikki” is now somewhere where her pains no longer plague her, where her vision is a sharp as it once was, and she knows she was loved by all of us.

Rest In Peace, Princess Pumpkinbutt.
