I was informed this week by my good friend, Donna, that her Otis had passed away.
He was thirteen.
It happened very suddenly and it was a blood clot that took his life.
I'm having trouble putting this post together as my heart feels broken.
I loved this little character, Otis, my man, I called him.
As his cat-sitter I cared for him for longer than I can remember. Was it really ten years?
He always made me laugh with his antics.
He could never get enough attention.
Rootin' through my purse was a high point of my visit.
Surely, there was something in there that he needed.
He was my favorite 'cat-in-window' poser.
Of course Otis was part of my advertising logo
it only made sense that he'd dress up for the occasion.
Bow-tie or not, he was one of the most handsome and delightful cats I have ever known.
I will miss this wonderful cat forever.
He's one that you never forget.
Rest in Peace my sweet little guy.
It was a privilege and a pleasure to care for you over the years.
You were a good boy, a silly-willy, and you will be missed by many.
Thanks for our times together.
