Winter always kept me company when I worked at the computer.

She and her daugher, Snow, who was blind and had beautiful opaque blue eyes, came to join the family of special needs cats and dogs who live in our home.

As soon as she came to our home, Winter began going to each cat each day to lick their heads and groom them. This started a trend: soon the other cats began grooming Winter and each other.

Two years ago she was diagnosed with intestinal lymphoma. However with chemotherapy (which had no unpleasant side-effects) from an excellent oncologist, Winter enjoyed a rich quality of life -- active, affectionate, and purring up a storm -- right to the end.
