“U” is for “Unforgotten”
It’s been a year now since Cordelia left us. She was fourteen years old; that's an elderly lady in cat years. It was a long life and I believe it was a happy one.
The vet referred to her as a "kitty." Look at her. Stately, dignified, Cordelia was not a "kitty."
Very much a member of the family, she is missed – definitely unforgotten.
She was named after King Lear's favorite daughter, Cordelia. Lear: "Her voice was ever soft, gentle and low." Very true.
If there is a cat heaven somewhere, she, of all felines, will have made it in.
