And then there is Bunnzola – whom I refer to as the angel in ill-fitting, fuzzyfurry grey pajamas. Bunn was a rescue adoption that I had seen posted for months and months on a rescue site. I kept coming back to her and trying to talk myself out of getting a THIRD cat... but I did adopt her. Afterwards, I kind of felt as if maybe 3 cats was 1 too many. From day one, she openly worshipped Beatrice and would follow her around and do anything to be near her. When Bea got a fast-acting, deadly cancer, became blind and sick, Bunn never left her side – she would porpoise her to the litter box, down the hallway, back to bed; she would spend hours grooming her and then flop hard and snug against her. When I had to take Bea out for appointments, Bunn would be waiting at the door and anxious to get her out of the carrier. During this time of sharp sadness, this warmed my heart. The last few days of Bea’s life were spent with the three of us, nestled together on the bed. When Bea was finally gone for good, Bunn spent a lot of time looking for her friend, but now seems to understand she is gone. She has tried so hard to take her place – sleeping where she used to sleep, and ensuring reading always includes a kitty on my lap. Again, a rescue rescues me.
