My kitty, formally known as King Tut, but usually called Kitty, died on Monday of this week after 16 years of doing all things his way. I took this photo a couple of years ago and it surprised me when I saw it on my monitor as the lighting gave it such an ethereal quality. It seemed appropriate to use on this post as he looks very angelic here, which he rarely was in life.

We mourn his passing more than we have some humans as he was a huge part of our lives for more than a decade and a half. He was cheerful, energetic, demanding and very often wild and devilish, but always a happy cat and I still look for him everywhere and am sure that I hear him many times a day.

You are greatly loved,
Good night, sweet kitty.

Peace and love to you and your pets.

That was a sweet tribute to kitty.
Sorry for your loss.
I have 2 dogs that together are 30+ yrs old (one is 17 and the other coming up on 16) I am sure I will not have them much longer, though both seem spryer than George! LOL
Sad for you during this time.

So sorry to hear of King Tut's passing. I lost my much loved yellow cat, Ziggy, 2 years ago. Know that I'm thinking about you. And in that place where golden cats go, I'm sure Ziggy is chasing King Tut.

Tut would love running with your Ziggy, Jan, that was his favorite thing to do.

Thanks for all the kind thoughts from everyone. Poeple who love animals know how hard it is to lose one even when they have had a good long life. Much appreciated.

*hugs* I am so sorry to hear about this. It is so hard when our furry kids pass.

I wear a Rainbow Bridge bracelet all the time that keeps my Felix boy close to my heart. It helps.

*gentle hugs*
