He was one of the sweetest cats, ever. He had such a fun personality and was so loving. Not a mean bone in his body.
He gave me some scares over the years, especially when we lived on the ranch and he climbed up a power pole and was at the top and we couldn't get him down. I thought he would never get down but my Son talked him down and he never did that again, thankfully.
He survived living out on the high desert, on our ranch, and moved with us, along with 5 of our other cats, in 2006 to a residential area where he had to stay inside from then on out. One by one, we have lost four of the other cats.....old age, mostly. They all, except for one, lived to be 16-17 years old.
We made the garage into their living quarters and they adapted quite well. I am sure they missed roaming the fields (although I always worried about them and the coyotes out in the desert) but as long as they were with their 'humans' they seemed ok with it.
He and our older cat, Shadow, who died a few years ago, were best buds...and looked a lot alike.
I miss you little buddy...
We still have Tinker, who is 15. I am sure she misses his company, too.
Here are some cards I received from our Vet and a couple of friends. I thought it was so thoughtful for them to send a card and it meant a lot to me. I had other people that sent e-mails conveying their sympathy...and that meant a lot as well. It's so good to know that there are others, out there, that know how it feels to lose a much loved pet.
This card was from an online friend in CA, Andrea.
It will take some time, I am sure, to get over the loss....it gets easier each day. But, I still miss him and miss his cute voice when you would go out to the garage.....and he would always walk over to the door to greet me :-) Love and miss you Little Guy!!!
