I remember the day we adopted him from a snake vendor in the east village of NYC. The sales person said that he didn't want to part with this beautiful blue eyed cat and that he was going to keep him for himself. After we offered $50 for the cat he reconsidered his position and asked for $110. We took IO home in a cab to what would be two full weeks of nightmare integration into our apartment with our existing cat Scardy. The two never got along well, but did learn to tolerate each other.
This cat gave us 7 years of his life teaching us that the real pleasures come from everyday experiences of eating, sleeping and bathing. He was friend to all regularly approaching large and dangerous animals in attempt to cuddle. We will miss watching his large belly swing from to side to side as he waddled through the yard. So often we would come home to a cat blissfully rolling upside down with his massive belly exposed.
May you find warm baths, tasty snacks and a macbook to sleep on. We miss you.
