R.I.P – Dickens K. Olsen 1998-2014

Today my cat, Dickens, died after a brief battle with oral cancer. Dickens was a wonderful creature that my family and I inherited eight years ago after my grandfather died and grandmother was unable to take care of him. Unfortunately the above photo (one that my mother wanted done) is one of the few good ones taken of him as black cats don’t seem to photograph well.
