My son, Matthew, chose Sassy at the animal shelter on Nov.30, 1998. She was about 3 years old and had been left there because she was replaced by a human baby.
She immediately became the queen of our castle and she made sure everyone knew that she was the boss. She wasn't afraid to give you a swat if she thought you needed one. In fact, she would swat you just because you were there. Her job was to keep everyone in line, and she did a good job!
Sassy always had to be a part of every project I was working on and sometimes that meant she played dolls with me.
"Would you 2 shut up! I'm trying to sleep here!"
"A kiss on the nose does much toward turning aside anger."
"No, I will not help her peel potatoes."
"Eww! I think this thing needs a diaper change!"
"I'll wear this now, but you have to sleep sometime. I shall seek my revenge then."
"What do you mean this bed is for Bitty Babies. Hence forth, this shall be a Bitty Kitty bed."
"This doll mattress passes my exceedingly high quality control specifications."
My beloved Sassy cat was put to sleep on Aug. 17, 2007 after a 2 1/2 year battle with chronic kidney disease.
There is no death. Only a change of worlds.

Godspeed, sweet Sassy.
