Remembering Mia, loyal companion to Kathleen Salmieri. “I rescued Mia from very poor living conditions when she was six months old. It was love at first sight. The day I met Mia, she curled up on my lap, looked at me with those pretty brown eyes and I was immediately hooked. For the past nine years Mia loved and protected me. This sweet Dobie girl made me laugh but could also drive me crazy when she was demanding. Her favorite game was playing fetch in the yard or batting a large egg shaped ball around like she was playing soccer. Mia tolerated my older cat, Gypsy and she loved Stella, my young cat. We all miss her and hope she is enjoying all of her friends at the Rainbow Bridge.” Remembrance donations by Judy Wolfe and Roni Gallagher, August 2019.
