Sweetie's Old House is Gone

9/25/14
Today
No worries, Sweetie!
Years ago, I often noticed a small black cat in the window of a nearby apartment.  I am almost certain that that little cat was the hungry, pregnant queen who showed up in the autumn of 2009, at my deck.  How she got out, or was let out, we'll never know.  And there were stories about the guy who was later tossed out of those apartments, and he had multiple cats.  I've hated the thought of that guy for years.

Today, the new owners of the old divided-up-in-apartments-probably-fifty-years-ago house, had a wrecking crew come in and take it down!  Once the debris is cleared, the basement hole filled in, and the driveway removed, it will be a empty lot.  We have lived here for over twenty years, and there has always been trouble at that building, often involving the authorities.  Squad cars, ambulances, fire trucks...too close to our house to feel comfortable.  Now, it will be quiet and calm, and no more renters allowed to have cats that they later dump!  In the Spring, the neighbors hope to try some gardening, even maybe put in a community vegetable patch.  No worries, Sweetie...you will ALWAYS have a home with me!

  1. What a different view! I think a community garden would be GREAT.

  2. I'm sure it't nice to have the problem property gone, and also nice that the visual reminder of the irresponsible owner isn't there anymore. A garden would be a great replacement.

  3. What a big change in the neighborhood. You got the best part of what came from the building, anyhow with Sweetie. And a community garden would be awesome!

  4. You and your neighbors must be very relieved that the trouble building is gone. Community vegetable patch would be really nice! Sweetie is very lucky to have you who care and love her so much!
