My friends that came into town last weekend brought their 6 year old daughter, Lily - these friends used to be neighbors over three years ago now, and from an early age, Lily simply fell in love with my three-legged cat, Haiku. To the extent that at one point I was tempted to send the cat to her in Pennsylvania (but there was a man involved, and it would have been stupid stupid stupid on my part to have done that and thankfully I didn't) - but nonethless, Lily has remained attached to Haiku. Her mother, Kate, said that every night, when Lily says her prayers before bed, that she prays for her parents and grandparents and uncle, her dogs and cat, and...Haiku and her missing leg. Yes, Haiku's missing leg has been prayed for every evening for over three years now. Could there be a more cared for missing cat leg anywhere...ever? I just thought that was really sweet.
