My Big Black Cat

After 13 loving years, filled with many hours of snuggle time, lots of play time, and a few more episodes of kitty puke then maybe I would have liked, we had to say good bye to our beautiful black cat, Shadow.

We had the amazing experience of watching him grow since his birth.  Yep, we were present for his birth, which was an amazing experience.  We had not planned on getting another cat (at that the time he become cat #3) but when the momma cat was giving birth, the hubby said if there was a black cat, we would take one.  And momma cat had 3 black kittens, so 6 weeks later, Shadow came home to join our crew and from that first day, he has been so loving.  He was the first cat to know when either of us was upset and he would just come and sit with us.  Quietly offering his presence to help calm us, giving us his warmth, and his comfort.

We will forever hold him in our hearts and cherish those many years he gave us joy, comfort, and love.  Here is with his partner in crime…they look so innocent don’t they?

Shadow, October 1999-June 2012
