You’ve seen a photo of my male cat, Mr. Green. Now here’s a photo of my female cat, Oku. She’s about 18 months old, but she’s only been living with us since February. My brother died of ALS on February 2, then two weeks later my old cat, Missy Blue, died. Too much death, so I went to the local animal shelter and got Oku.

I named her “Oku” because I like that sound, not because it means anything.

What do you think?
