23. They have emotions just like us... When eight year old Gatita's brother, Mr. Squeeks,
disappeared one night (we found out three weeks later that he had been killed by another animal, probably a bob cat that we did not know was in the neighborhood), she retreated to what I guess they call a plant shelf (a useless space in the hall over the top of a closet) and stayed their except for short trips down to use the litter box and to eat and drink a little for three months.

She finally rejoined us when I fostered three abondoned three-week old kittens. Two were Siamese marked and one was a Tuxedo. She had a maternal flash for the Tux and watched over him till he grew older. She still has her moments of hiding away and she has never bonded with any of the other cats in house.

Our four-legged friends love, miss, remember, and mourn for their families, same species or not.
