Goodbye old friend

Our much loved family pet died today. He came into our lives 15 and a half years ago when my wife (then girlfriend) and I discovered a bedraggled tiny black kitten near the garage of the block of units in which were living. At first I thought he was a rat, being small and thin, with a long skinny tail. He was affectionately known as Ratty from then on.

Enjoying the warmth of the sun on our back deck

Ratty was with us through most of our major adult life events; joining us through several moves, our engagement, our wedding, the purchase of our first home, and the birth of our two daughters. He was a great cat, he lived a pleasant life and he was much loved. We were all with him at the end. We miss you Ratty.
