Bob

 A few short years ago, when my Dad could no longer live at home, he went to stay with my brother, Sam, his wonderful wife Trish, and their son, Nate.  At the same time a very remarkable Manx cat, Bob, joined their family. Bob's outgoing and loving nature soon acquired him a legion of fans, many were certain he was my Mum, reincarnated in a cat suit.  He was Dad's very loyal and loving friend until Dad's passing in 2009.  Earlier this year, Bob suffered heart failure and was left with one leg paralyzed, but he brought himself back to walking on all fours and enjoyed the most wonderful summer catching chipmunks and lolling in Trish's lovely gardens.  Through tears this morning, I tell you that Bob died suddenly a few hours ago. 
 Now they are together again......
We'll keep cheering on the Pats for you, Bob. Thank you for all the love, laughs and being the best friend ever.

Oh, Marcia, I am so so sorry to read about little Bob. What a character he was. I loved reading about all his silly escapades. How very sad. He was one of my favorite kitties and I loved reading about him. My heart goes out to you and his family....debbie.

I"ve just come upon your blog. Being a life-long cat lover, may I also extend my condolences. It is a terrible wrench to the heart. My last kitty lived to be a very old lady of twenty. I'm sure there must be cats in Heaven.

I'm so sorry--I loved reading about Bob--he was a delight. So glad your Dad had his companionship--our furry kids can help heal a hurting heart.
