If you have read my second missionary memoir, In Every Place, you have had the privilege of meeting Bubba. Born in Blolequin, West Africa, and bought for $1 by our then 9 year old middle daughter Stefanie, he was the most resilient, amazing feline in the world. And a world traveler too!
But even adventurous, fun-loving cats get old and sick. We made the difficult, but best decision to have him put to sleep on Sunday night. 17 years of furry fun and purrs of delight. My heart aches but the memories are sweet.
