Laurel Burch

I'm a little worried about Mom. I fear that she may have an obsession with dead people. What with Grandma's death just a little over two weeks ago, I would advise her not to read obituaries for a while. But, no, she reads them anyway. She read one today for Laurel Burch, the designer of the pretty tote bag behind me in this photo.


Mom gave me the newspaper and urged me to read the obituary since the lady really liked to use cats in her designs.

I didn't really want to read it, but I decided to indulge Mom this time. Ms. Burch did have an interesting and successful life for a high school dropout with a debilitating bone condition. Survivors were listed as a human son and daughter, but surely she must have left cats behind too. I hope that someone will take good care of them.

Mom, let's concentrate on the funnies in the newspaper. We don't want to be sad all the time.

My human has a Laurel Birch bag that she bought for London. She really likes it. That is too bad.

Oh, I did not know Laurel Burch passed away. We have a really cute mug with one of her designs on it. I am certain she must have had cats.

I will have to make the maid google Laurel Burch, we do not know her....
Don't be hard on your human, she just lost her Grandma and every bean (or cat) deals differently with their grieve... The maid and the butler and me - we all dealt differently with Anastasia's death... But we all still miss her a lot!
