On Monday, October 21st, little Millie, also famous as the adorable #editorcat, passed away peacefully. Many of you know, Millie had a rough start when her mother abandoned her at the front door of Harlequin's Toronto office on May 16th. Coincidence? I don't think so. I believe that mommy cat had a great sixth sense and knew her little one would be loved and cared for if she left her there. Sure enough, Senior Editor Victoria Curran and Editorial Assistant Claire Caldwell came to the rescue and got Millie (named after Harlequin's street address...Don Mills Road...where she was found) the emergency care she needed to survive. Only days old, eyes still shut and weighing in at a mere 3.5 ounces, Millie proved to be a tough kitty.

Millie was in kitty heaven. Attention, love, cuddles, Harlequin fame, her own Twitter hashtag and making it to 'editor' at only weeks old. Come on! Well, okay. She did work hard at the office and she did do community service by bringing joy to folks at a senior center.

Hugs to Victoria for her loss, and to all who knew Millie in person or online.
As for pet angels, here's wishing Millie an eternity of belly scratches and warm milk.
