Good Night, Betty

By CattyDaddy | Mar 27

A little over a year has past since we said good night to Betty. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss her. As expected, I can now look back on our time together in a warm way and often without tears.


CattyDaddy takes you on the adventures of two gay dads and their daughter. Check out his column for vignettes about their experiences as a two-dad family. Joe, Greg, their daughter Elly and dog Betty live in Cambridge, MA. Joe AKA CattyDaddy is a stay-at-home dad and Greg is a physician. Elly is a busy, curious toddler and Betty spends her days keeping up with her human baby sister. You can also follow CattyDaddy's broader musings on life at www.cattydaddy.com.
