All of my memories are childhood memories. (That's the magic of being 12). But one of my earliest childhood memories is when I got my favorite stuffed animal: a cat named Menedy.

I can't remember what happened afterwards, but I know some time later when I was in the car, Vavó said, "Kate, I have a surprise for you." I said, "What is it?" Vavó pulled one of the stuffed cats out of the bag she was holding. I started hugging it and said, "I'll call you Menedy!"
I have no idea why I named her that or where I got the name, but the name stuck and now Menedy goes with me wherever I go. As you can see in the picture, she's very old, very floppy, and very loved. I even made her some clothes. Menedy used to be pure white. Now she's gray. The only patch of white is behind her ear. You can't see it unless you fold it back.
