Layla liked to lay on her belly with her front paws delicately crossed. She was a fearless hunter of houseflies, mice and
one time, a chipmunk. She had a fierce temper and was known to swat at her humans, though she never came close to scratching and she never held a grudge. She spent many hours lounging on her back in hallways and high traffic areas. She had perfect faith that her humans wouldn't step on her (and they never did.) She loved to go outdoors. She loved to eat grass and roll around on hot, dusty concrete. She was also a cuddle bug (since she was a kitten) and she never missed an opportunity to enjoy pets and praise.
I'm sad to report our Layla-loo-loo passed away this morning. I feel out-of-sorts sharing this news. If I hadn't painted her a dozen times (and written about her snarky ways here) I might have kept it to myself... We were hopeful she would recover, but after emergency measures last night it was her heart that finally gave out. She is missed.
