Today one of the furry babies, Pünktchen, had to be put to sleep. We got her from the animal asylum 14 years ago and I’ve never met a more stubborn, thickheaded cat. She was also easily annoyed, which she usually showed by sinking her claws into parts of your anatomy. She disliked most humans (as well as other cats), but came to love the members of my family. She was the one who ripped the wallpaper in my new flat to shreds and spread snot across the whole flat (my windows look lovely). She insisted on sitting more or less on the keyboard when I used the computer and grew angry when I insisted that I needed said keyboard. Being kept out of the bedroom also made her quite mad, which she showed first by hollering outside the bedroom door for endless minutes, before jumping against the door (probably after having sneezed at it).
I will miss her very much.
