Moxie Moves On

Moxie, who recently inspired visitors, readers, and at least one cartoonist, passed on a few days ago. Virginia tells me they'll be planting a Memorial Garden for Moxie, and donations of perennials and bags of soil are welcome. I wish I knew more about flowers. Something bold and orange would be nice.

I didn't have a chance to meet Moxie. I know she was in a lot of pain toward the end. But there's a calm at the center of all cats, and I'm sure she was able to draw on that peace in her final weeks, and to share it with those who stopped to notice.
