Mittens the Cat: 2003-2005

In keeping with the Obscure Death Post Weekend genre, I would like to bid a fond farewell to my neighbor’s cat, Mittens.

Mittens died Friday evening in a tragic electrical accident while on holiday in Norway.  While being a wonderful, loving cat, she also suffered from an over-developed sense of curiosity, which would ultimately bring about her demise.  While climbing a utility pole right outside the front window of her cozy bed n breakfast in the hamlet of Lardal, she lost her footing and became tangled in the lines.  All 9 lives were spent in a hurry as Mittens glowed a brilliant blue and streaked across the Norwegian twilight sky.

Mittens, you will be missed.
