Sox was the first cat that was "mine" as a kid. When I went to grad school, she took on the role of head of the household, making sure my dad did all of the things he was supposed to do, and always right on time. She also conducted regular inspections of the kitchen cupboards by flipping open the doors and peering inside. She was "Big Girl" for her whole life, and she was a big presence at home. She will be missed.
