    I just learned last night that my sharp and royal tuxedo cat named Prinnctopher has passed away.

    He was turning 8 years old this Christmas, but instead became very ill this fall and died in October. I was hoping to make him part of my life again since I moved into my own home recently, but I was too late. He wasn't being taken care of very well at all, but I shouldn't have left him where I was in the first place.

    I raised him from a kitten and we were a source of comfort to each other. He was my little boy. I just didn't do enough to protect him.

    His favorite food was tuna and wet friskies. He also loved eating Cheerios as a kitten. He liked sleeping in the bed with me and really liked a little stuffed animal he would play with and drag around everywhere.

    Like most kitties, he was funny and would drink running water from faucets, but not fresh water in a bowl. He ran to the bathroom whenever I went in, because he knew I was going to eventually run water.

    If he saw me sobbing, he would come and investigate, then sit close to me.

    I was told that since I'd left a year and a half ago, that he would lay in front of my bedroom door and moan. :(

    I'm sorry that he suffered.

    So sorry for your loss. I love cats, but am rather allergic to them. Can only be around them for short periods. I am glad you shared some photos of yours. He really was a very handsome cat. Remember the good times the two of you shared.

    I know I'm late here but I wanted you to know reading this made me cry. The love for an animal can be incredibly strong. I've lost two dogs that will never be forgotten and I think of them just about every day.

    Thank you for sharing his memory with us and please know that his energy is with you because he knows you loved him.
     
  8. I really like you PB. You are so thoughtful and intelligent. Hang in there. It's a hard way to be in a shallow world.
