It has been two years since we said goodbye to our beloved Miss Egypt. Though she continues to remain in our hearts, her physical absence is noticed very much. Simply, our tabby girl gave much of herself. Playful, friendly and sociable, she was always ready to visit with anyone. Yet, she only had eyes for her “one”. Egypt knew her “one” would do anything for her.
Wood and carpet squares, her favorite toys. Lounging in a sunny window, her favorite activity. Egypt left her scratch marks on wood surfaces, nose prints on every window from which she watched her world, on a daily basis. A well-lived home, after all, needs all of these markings.

Without a doubt, Egypt was the cat-in-charge. The other kitties of the household understood the order of things. Her position as top cat remains unfilled, the title and role she made her own.

Occasionally, we’ll catch a glimpse of Egypt from the corner of our eye. On rare occasions, we’ll see Egypt jump onto her favorite chair. And, yes, she made the trip to the ranch.
We love and miss you very much.
