A Very Sad Day

We went to the shelter about 6 years ago to get a short haired female kitten. We came home with the best long haired, male cat I have ever seen.

All spread out, lounging around. He fit into our family like he had been here forever. I love him. He wanted to be wherever everyone else was.
He thinks he is king. And he is probably right.
Well my heart is so sad, he died today. I don't even know what happened. He was running back and forth, I thought he was chasing a bug. I asked my husband to come and see what he was trying to get and he picked him up from under the chair and about 1 minute later he died. They become such a part of the family. They bring their own personality for sure. I don't even know how old he was. I just know that I am going to miss him terribly.
A very sad heart


  1. Oh Kat, my heart-felt sympathies to you.
    Furry kids sure do have a special place in our families and when we loose one, it hurts terribly. Sending you lots of hugs, Traci

  2. So sorry for your loss. I can sure see how he won your heart that day at the shelter. Beautiful kitty. Blessings!
