|Queen LeeLoo the Beloved|
Our family was lucky enough to adopt LeeLoo 13 years ago when she was about 2 years old. Baby Cat was in 3rd grade, and Baby Brother Cat was in kindergarten at the time. Baby Brother Cat used to be kind of loud when he was playing with his toys, so LeeLoo gave him a real wide berth for a long time after she came to live with us. But the two of them grew close over the years and I know that he adored her. Even Daddy Cat fell in love with her. Eventually she had us all totally wrapped around her little kitty paw.
Not only was she beautiful, but LeeLoo had the softest fur in the entire world. Everyone always wanted to pet her. Sometimes LeeLoo did not appreciate all the attention she received, and for this we apologize. She wasn't always kind to people she didn't know well.
All of us in this Cat family loved LeeLoo very much, and we are so sorry that she's no longer with us. But, we are exttremely grateful that she no longer suffers (she was in kidney failure), and we are grateful for all the years that we had the privilege to love and care for her.
Her she is in her famous "Sun Spot" photo, so named because she loved to seek out spots of sunlight throughout the house and then sit in them to get warm.

Believe it or not, black kitties are extremely hard to photograph well. I'd say only one in ten photos come out well at all, so I'm especially glad this one did. It's one of my personal favorites.
Laughing Cat Creative Enterprises came into being because of a dream Momma Cat had in which she was carrying LeeLoo around through a beautiful, but, haunted house. LeeLoo was clinging to Momma Cat on the front of her body, much the same way as a baby Koala would. While they were looking around and admiring all the wonderful carvings in the woodwork and such, LeeLoo threw back her head and laughed a great big belly laugh, like a very happy child! This dream and image were so powerful that Momma Cat and Baby Cat decided to use it for their business name and their blog name.
Thank you LeeLoo, you were no ordinary cat. You will never be forgotten.
