Miniver (August 2007 to June 14, 2018)
Orphaned as tiny kittens in the wilds of upstate New York, Miniver and her brother Cheevy were adopted by my brother shortly thereafter and took happily to their new life of modern urban domesticity, unlike their poetic namesake. Together they lived on three coasts, tested the weight limits of several airlines, and helped welcome my sister-in-law and nephew to the family.
Miniver loved food, faucets, and floss--and was slowly coming around to toddlers. Much like her human aunt, she adored sleeping and was very good at it. The yin to her brother's yang, and a calming influence on all, she will be much missed.
On the one hand, we're all doing terribly. But on the other, I'm currently losing the least, which just goes to show that the universe really is just a roiling mass of entropy. In case there was any doubt. Which lately there has not been.
Found the crossword puzzle I made for computer class in 6th grade. Expecting a recruitment call from the New York Times any day now.
