I know, this is not a black and white picture and this is black and white Wednesday but I need to post this picture today. If you remember a few weeks ago, I posted that amazing (seriously, it’s one of my all time favorite pictures that I have ever taken) picture of my cat Blackberry? Well, today Blackberry, who has been struggling with cancer, died… and I am really sad. Obviously she was really old (18 years old!) and she was such a good cat to our family for that long. I have all these happy memories of her from all those years too. So I can’t hold it against her for dying. But it still makes me sad.
Cobalt took this picture of me saying goodbye to Blackberry in person last month right before we came back to Colorado. The whole way to the airport and back to Colorado, I couldn’t stop thinking about how soft her ears were and how happy her purring in my arms made me feel. I don’t think I will ever forget that. I’m going to miss you Blackberry… I love you.

I like the leopard on the towel behind you. Reminds me of the Blackberry of old. Ruler of the house.
Rest in Peace, Blackberry.
aw….. all looks so peaceful and serene there.
I am so sorry for your loss.
love you, girl.
