When Ed the cat was a baby, Evan found him in the bushes on the way home from school. The vet said he most likely was hit by a car or kicked. He quickly became part of our family. Most mornings when I was curled up with a cup of hot coffee on the couch, I would see this face peeking in the window at me, waiting for his breakfast. Ed lived outside, except on the coldest of Oregon days.
We are moving today, and last night Ed went to live with his new family. Joni and Rachel are animal lovers and neighbors extraordinaire. I doubt Ed will even miss us. But I think I'm gonna miss that face.
