While Facebook does have it’s downsides, one of the things I do love about it are the “memories”; the postings you can review each day that show you what you posted on that day in years past.
The other day, these pics of Relic popped up.
They were from 2015, and it was our very first meeting. If you look closely, you can see he wasn’t quite full grown yet, but he was close. (So I’ve pegged his age accurately.) He didn’t have the big tom cat jowls yet, and he was a little less muscular.
After that meeting, I only saw him every month or so, until that fateful spring in 2017 when he showed up a little under the weather. After a few days I was able to gain is trust and then he was back more or less every day. And of course, the rest is history!
