I had a bit of a heartbreak two months ago when Nora, my companion and sewing partner of seven years, passed away. I thought I didn't want another cat for a while, but the house was so lonely without Nora that even my husband, a bona fide dog guy, said we needed a cat.
For those of you who are wondering, Nora came to us already named, as did Flora. Merely a coincidence.
We've had Flora for a week and a day and she's taken over the house.
I was afraid that she wouldn't know how to help me with the sewing, but she took to it it instantly--one might almost say instinctively--so I have high hopes for future sewing companionship.
