Geri (the Baby) 1994-2012
Scott Cupp was working in Houstn and came over for a visit one night back in 1994. I went out to his car with him when he left, and we heard a cat crying somewhere down the block. After Scott pulled out, I walked down the street and found a tiny kitten sitting beside a cat that had been run over. I took the baby home, and she took up residence in our house and in our hearts. Last night she was perky as ever, and around 10:15 she came into the bedroom to remind me it was time to feed her. Then she went out to wait for me in the kitchen. I heard her meow and went to feed her. She started toward the utility room, and her legs splayed out. I picked her up and took her to the bedroom and put her on the towel on the floor at the foot of our bed where she usually slept (if she wasn't on the bed itself). Fifteen minutes later, she was gone. Things won't be the same around here. We'll miss her every day.
