    Callie’s Story
    As has been her nightly routine for a long time, on Saturday evening, Callie, the kitty, left her private retreat/room to join us in the living room as we relaxed, except I was busy and had not yet sat down.
    Callie’s routine was to lie in my lap for a while, then lie down at Bill’s feet, often resting her head on his foot. Saturday evening, I was busy and hadn’t sat down yet.
