Hi BBers, I wanted to write a memorial for my dearly noble little guy, my cat, Romeo. He has been staying with my parent's while I've been at college but I visited him frequently as they live in town.
Romeo had a body like a lion. His fur was a tux, right down to the black line that ran down his chest like a tie. He was classy. We moved a lot in his life, but he insisted on staying outside most of the time as he had a neighborhood to rule, no matter which neighborhood it was. His sister, MissChief (a calico with an attitude like May West) has been slowly losing touch with reality over the past four years. Though she stayed close to the house, she only recognizes her human family half the time. Romeo, in his failing health, found that it was more comfortable to be inside. He always made sure to go out twice/day to find his sister and lay with her in the grass for a while. She grieves for him now as much as I do. Romeo has been my little man for 14 yrs. He was always there on the porch when I came home to have a chat and flop over my lap for pets. He will be greatly missed by his hole family.
Romeo, I know you have all big shade trees to lounge under and plenty of tuna juice on the other side of the bridge. <3
Thank you for reading and understanding the love we all share for our furbabies.
