When Poppy found out I had written about the cats again, she let me know in no uncertain terms that it has been a long time since I wrote about her.
|Poppy and John|
|Poppy and Orca|
We have had the dog for five years and she has been friends with every cat who has lived here. She and John were great friends and would play out on the deck together quite frequently. She also liked to play outside with Orca. When we lost both cats overnight last fall, I think Poppy missed them as much as we did.
Since we have the new cats, Poppy has started to play some with Harry, but her heart does not seem to be in it. Not like it was with John or even the little Shadow Kitty we had for a short time. Poppy let that kitten romp all over her and they really had a good time.
It didn't take a scientific study to tell me that having pets is good for one's health.
