My sister, Judi, had “mom duty” yesterday morning at Conifer House. Mom duty includes feeding Smokey and scooping his poop, greeting our mom and visiting with the other residents before breakfast. Judi put the Rose Parade on TV, as our mom has always loved parades. Smokey strolled into the living room while everyone was watching TV. My mom saw Smokey come into the room and she exclaimed, “Look at that cat!” Ever faithful, Smokey is always close by, sleeping in her room and roaming the halls with her on her endless journey of going… nowhere.fullsizerenderSmokey doesn’t seem to mind that she sometimes forgets he belongs to her – just as long as he is fed on time!
