Poppy died early this morning.

Unusually for me, I had a lie-in  probably because I was woken by cats fighting about 5 and got up and let them out. So I didn't get up until 7.40 when I let the cats back  in and fed them. Then I went outside into the garden and looked through the french windows of the room where she stayed overnight in her cage which is something I never normally do.

Poppy was stretched out on her blanket and it was obvious she was dead. I went back in and checked her. She was cool but not yet in rigor mortis -that came a little later. Her eyes were open.

I took Susan a cup of tea, woke her up and told her. Unsurprisingly she's very upset. So am I, I just don't visibly show it. Instead I write this at 8.10am.

In a little while I'll take her to the vets, Susan wants us to treat her the same as we've treated our other cats which have died, and ask for them to arrange for her to be cremated and the ashes returned to us. Poppy will then join Lucy, BB, and Tiger in our garden.

What you published made a ton of sense. But, what about this?

what if you typed a catchier title? I mean, I
don't wish to tell you how to run your website, however
what if you added a post title that grabbed a person's attention? I mean "POPPY: LAST ENTRY" is kinda plain. You might
glance at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create
article headlines to grab viewers to click. You might add a video
or a pic or two to get readers interested about what you've
written. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
