R.I.P. Maisie

Hi Friends,
Last week we had to farewell our beautiful little girl Maisie.  Maisie was the reason I called my Blog Cat's Ink Corporated because she was always by my side or on my desk wanting some attention or trying to help by spreading my card or her fur over my desk.  She had been with us for over 18 years and was a much loved part of our family.
