The final act. As most of you know, we lost little DELTA who seemed to have had a weak heart, though even those with a weak heart can be strong of heart. And we've had no more sightings at all of BRAVO... but knowing his adverturesome and brave spirit, he's probably already made it to Cocoa Beach... or maybe he's at KSC preparing for the next launch! Though we won't give up on him, and who knows... he might just find his way back to us sometime. It's been quite a week here at Zoolatry... Comedy and Tragedy, Laughter and Tears, Joy and Sorrow. Late afternoon yesterday we released ANNIE. She was yearning so to be uncaged and have her freedom returned. She flew into the woods... and we thought, "we'll not see her again". CHARLIE was recovering quickly and well in her trap, and was already anxious to be on her way, but it was just too soon. She cried and fussed a great deal. Suppertime: Annie cautiously came down the sidewalk, and approached Charlie's trap. She paced around it, pawing, soft meows. Charlie reached two tiny paws through the metal trap and held Annie's face. We had no camera, it was a moment forever imprinted into memory. The two whined and talked and caressed through the cage. We knew it was time to release Charlie, they couldn't be kept apart. At our approach, Annie ran. Opening the cage, Charlie followed. And we thought, "we'll not see them again." Now dusk was arriving and, just like in the Christmas story... "what to my wondering eyes should appear?" there were Annie and Charlie, running in the yard, playing, exploring... perhaps also searching for Bravo and Delta... but they are home... and home we think they'll stay.
