We collected Orlando’s ashes today.
He’s sitting pride of place, along with our wedding album and photographs of the people we love.
He came home with Kitten, Who Had her vaccinations and protested the Damnable Cat Carry Box all the way there and all the way back. She met my parents, as he once did, and sat with me on the sofa to sleep. Human fidgets too much.
We will miss him terribly, as we have for the last week and a half. But he’s home now, and that’s where he loved to be.
