Thursday Thirteen things about Gizzy

Thirteen Things we loved about Gizzy

1. Gizzy said that the weirdest thing about snow is when it crunches. It gets cold, and dry, and it gets packed down, usually from the wind. You can hear it crunch when people walk on it, and sometimes the car machines make the same crunching sound.

2. He waited on the back of the recliner for his Mom to come back from day hunting. He sat at the window and watched for the machine she drives. Then he watched her gather her things and waited for her to walk toward the door. He waited for her every day. He tried to get out into the hallway. He ass really curious about the Outside.

3. Gizzy was Mr Karate's cat. Each day he would sleep on Mr Karate's bed. When Little Mr Karate came home from school, he would run to his room and jump onto his bed. Mr Karate would land on the bed not two inches away from Gizzy. He would make the bed bounce up and down. Gizzy would not move, in fact we think he enjoyed it.

4. He had a very special girl for a Valentine: Willow

5. Gizzy liked to drink out of the bathroom faucet.

6. Gizzy was the best supervisor for his Mom when she made quilts.

7. Gizzy is a relative unit of measurement. It's the distance in a straight line from his head to the bottom of his tail when he's standing up looking straight. He could be bigger. When you count his tail, the Lady says he's about three feet.

8. Gizzy loved fingernail files.

9. Gizzy loved to hide under the covers before the Lady makes the bed.

10. He loved to play chess.

11. He was Millie's best friend.

12. He liked marshmallows.

13. He was loved by all cats in the blogosphere, and will be dearly missed.

What a sweet list. I am very sad about Gizzy, too. I am going to remember Gizzy whenever I use my special Gizzy quilt. My quilt is even more precious now because it is a special link to him.
