Recently lost a friend who did not drink and absolutely could not stand the smell of any alcohol. If he came close when I was having a drink he would turn up his nose and walk away. So what libation do you choose to celebrate and toast the life of someone who did not drink? I looked in the liquor cabinet a long time last night trying to decide and finally settled on something which I like and would enjoy because he loved nothing more than seeing me happy and spending time with me. In case you didn’t pick up on it the friend was our cat. We had him 18 years and he was a joy and brought enrichment to our lives. I’ll remember him forever and even though he would turn up his nose at whatever alcohol I happened to have in my glass he was an awesome cat and I miss him tremendously. Whoever said a dog is man’s best friend never owned a cat!
