Goodbye Kitty.

Moggy was the exact opposite of the sweet cartoon kitty you see in every store. He could be surly and mean if you got in his way or between him and his kibble. He wasn't particularly fond of young children and did not like it if you interrupted a nice nap on your lap for a potty break. He purred loudly and often though and was mostly sweet. We found him abandoned at the Home Depot by an arguing couple who dumped him in the lot. I wasn't sure about bringing this hissing ball of black fur home, but Robert was not leaving with out him. Once at home he would occasionally hiss and screech out of a dark corner and jump onto your legs biting and clawing. "THAT CAT HAS TO GO!!!" I would scream in reply. Robert would calm me down and bring out the band-aids and long pants. Some how he stayed long enough for us to have him fixed which mellowed him considerably. He got to know us and our home and eventually burrowed his way into our hearts. He was large and warm and loved to sit in the sun, even in the summer. We spent 16 years with him and will miss him awfully. Goodbye Moggy.

So sorry about your sweet kitty. It's funny how they wriggle into your heart, even when they want you to think they don't want to be there.

So sorry about your Moggy. Sixteen years is a long time to own a pet, especially one that you were ready to get rid of. He was a beautiful cat.

Awww, sending {HUGS} your way. I'm so sorry. No matter where they come from those fur babies have nothing but love (even in the scratches) for their human rescuers. Hope your family is doing okay.

Sorry to hear about Moggy.
16 is a great life. I lost my beloved Max on Christmas Day 5 years ago and It still makes me well up with tears. We love our kitties!
Huggs!!

I'm so sorry about Moggy. I'm glad he found a home with you and had a good long life. My own kitty is turning 19yo in a couple of months and I'm loving him as much as I can. I'm so grateful for every day he's with us.

I knew I loved you for more than just your talent with beads! I have to really respect someone who will blog about their kitty, as well as blog an obit when they lose a precious one! I lost my best friend in November, he was 21 (yes 21!) and I still am unable to write my blog about him....so my sympathies to you and your family on your loss. Moggy was a gorgeous kitty! He is lucky to have had a family who loved him!
