Odin on my mind

I probably sound like a broken record, but there you go. Maybe it is because this month was our meeting anniversary, maybe because I see cats very often these days, but I am thinking a lot about Odin these days. I miss him a lot. I even started craving fish and chips, maybe because this is what I was carrying back when I met him. It struck me that he did not have yet his Viking's funeral. The ashes of my black cat with one eye are still on the bookshelf. I should really do it, make a nice ceremony and all, but I cannot bring myself to do it. Maybe only when I will leave this place. I have decided that when this happens, when I do leave the flat, I will then adopt another cat, preferably a black cat. For the reasons listed on this post. In the right time and the right place. Until then, and until I blog about him again, here is a still (I think) unpublished picture of Odin, when I gave him tuna for the first time.

Our black cat, Shadow, was with us 21 years and two months exactly! They really leave an emptiness when they are gone.

@Jaz-I do need a cat, sadly here I do not have the right to have one. I took a huge liberty with Odin.
@Nellie-They do leave an emptiness. Odin was about ten years he showed up in our life, I thought he would stay with us for a good ten years. Cats live fairly long, one thing I love about them.
