Last summer, I acquired two new pets to warm up the household. My house is always crawling with at least one fuzzy animal or two, so after a year bereft of my cat that I had for 12 years, I went to get another one. I went to friends of my parents. They run a decent farm. They always have more animals around than they can count, and they were looking to give away their cats. There I came across two cute little black cats playing with each-other. Twins they were, a boy and a girl, and I found myself unable to pick just one to bring home. so I took them both. I named them Luke and Leia. As time progressed, the two developed distinct personalities. Luke was a relatively calm and seemingly lazy cat, but had incredible reflexes and was deceptively agile. I've seen him snatch birds right out of the air. Leia was more docile, more cuddlier of the two. Whenever you pet her belly, she would purr like there was no tomorrow. They were a beautiful pair, and what I observed from them was as true as the day I brought them home: they were inseparable. Luke was real Jedi, and Leia ... well, Leia was my little Princess. This week, Leia was struck by a car. Taken from my family far too young and far too soon. It happened while I wasn't there, and I feel terrible just thinking that she died all alone. I still have Luke, though I think he knows that she's gone. He's been a real comfort. And like a true Jedi, he'll still be around to bring peace in my galaxy. So, to all who might be reading this, I just wanted to get this off my chest. In retrospect, I would like to know about your pets. Do you have any that you remember fondly? Do you have any funny stories to tell? Do they, like mine, have geeky Star Wars names?
