I am so sad to announce that our 11 year old family cat died last night. Our family is just devastated over it. Mickey was such a great loving cat and he will be missed greatly. We are unsure what was really going on inside of him---probably cancer, not sure. He came down with some very severe anemia this past week and by the weekend had absolutely no energy and was in a lot of pain. It was a very hard weekend. He passed last night here and home--where he was comfortable. I'm glad that he isn't suffering anymore and I'm sure he's in a better place.
Things I will miss most about Mickey:
-his incredibly LOUD purring every time you pet him just a little bit.
-his massive weight laying around the house taking up the bed!
-his little squeak when he meowed.
-how tidy and always well groomed he was---his fur was the softest ever!
-how much he took care of Mouse our other cat (she's going to miss him soooo much!)
-his cuddly nature, always wanted to sit on your lap and be by you.
-the way he could make our 150 pound dog put his tail between his legs and run off crying.
-and most of all I'll miss my big fluffy pillow.
Rest in peace, Mickey!
