Capture Maryland awarded this Photo of the Day today. Since their site is shutting down next week because of lack of funds, this is my last submission, and it is fitting.
Radclyffe is my 13 year old girl. Yes, she was named after one of my favorite authors, and below is her story.
I found the romance author, Radclyffe, in March of 2002 when my 18 year old Angel, a beautiful black cat was dying. Rad’s books were of great comfort during that time, and I wrote to the author to tell her that. She responded almost immediately and made a fan for life and thus got a cat named after her!
Several months after Angel died, Radclyffe, my Tabby, came into my life quite by accident. She walked into a stranger’s doggy door and just presented herself. The stranger happened to be a neighbor of a colleague of mine. No one could keep Rad and her kitten, Malach, who hung around the outside of the house until he was captured. You see, Rad, terrified the dogs. That’s my girl!
In November of 2002, I adopted these two strays. A month later, KI Thompson accidentally appeared in my life too. 2002 was a very lucky year for me.
Fast forward to today, Rad is very sick. We are in the middle of testing what is wrong with her. Tomorrow am we go to get an ultrasound and will hopefully get some answers so we can move forward with treatment.
Our family asks for your prayers for our much beloved Radclyffe. She has brought so much to our lives, and we want her around for a long time to come.
