Today I said goodbye to my big orange old man kitty. I can remember the day my coworker turned over this tiny fluffy abandoned kitten he'd found. I had no idea then that he'd live an incredible twenty years.

He instantly adopted Jen, and again instantly became Thekla's old man kitty and best friend.

He was a sweet little pouncy kitten, a grown up Adventurer Cat, and in his later years a demanding grouchy pain in the ass. But he always loved all of us so much, and was always ready to cuddle, usually with a sharp little reminder that he was ready for petting too.

I will miss you so much, Leo my house lion. Goodbye.

Some other cat
Is king of cats
Because the King of Cats is dead.

I'm sorry. Somewhere Leo is pouncing on the souls of naughty mice to his heart's content.

I saw this shortly after you posted it but was sitting in the middle of starbucks and knew I could not reply at all without crying. I am so sorry for your loss, and the loss of everyone in your household. Leo was an amazing cat, Gentle, even if he was grumpy, and generous with is affections. I only knew him a short while and I will miss him. I grieve for and with you. *hugs*

The poem at the end made me cry, and my heart is with you as I watch Widget at 16 transition into demanding grouchy pain in the ass. She's earned it too. So glad Leo had such a wonderful life with you. <3
