One Year Post-Saki

I lost my Saki a year ago tonight. No, it's not so sharp anymore--she belongs to the past now. I so miss her bright sparkle in my life, but I'm so grateful she made it to 17 and I had 16 good years with her.

I think this is my favorite pic of her: Smiling Saki Owning her Mouse and Me.

I've uploaded below a 4 pic pre-digital fight sequence with her best sparring partner, her big sis Milli, who left several years before her. Maybe they are having fun sparring even now in a sunny corner in Primroses:

Mill and Saki: The Challenge.

Milli and Saki: Slappy Paws!

Milli and Saki: Over and Out for Milli. You will notice the little "Love" and "Peace" pillows hanging over the combatants. Yes.

Milli and Saki: Saki Holds the Field, as Usual. The annoying little sister, looking so very innocent.

Below are a dozen more favorite pics

Power Box Saki. How she loved her plastic crates, her pirate ship, the purple Hork and all of her fine vessels. She loved to jump in them, and be carried and swung about in them.

Rest in Peace, sweetest, beloved Saki. Always present in my heart as long as I am here. You were the brightest star. So very, very missed.
