You guys have already said such things, and I appreciate it enormously.
It's strange to start thinking of what my life is going to look like without Genevieve. I know that sounds overdramatic, but I've altered my life in a thousand ways to accommodate her. For example, I have been sleeping on the floor for almost two years so that she would be able to sleep next to me. (Do not tell that to my family; they would kill me.)
Fun fact: The name by which my cat was called 99% of the time was not actually Genevieve, but rather Wheatie. (That's what I named her when she was a kitten.) But she told me that she would like to go by a more dignified name when she was being spoken about in the company of the better sorts of people. I asked her to choose her own dignified name, and she chose Genevieve. So on the forum, she has always been Genevieve.
