He was with us from the age of 6 months as we adopted him from a Humane Society and passed away this morning after turning 20 years old just last month. He was my ‘head’ kitty…so called because he so often sat upon my head when I was sitting on the couch. He kept my arms warm as I typed on my laptop and many times couldn’t help chasing my fingers as they moved about the keyboard. He was the ‘playful’ one and teased the Greyhounds to no end. He was the kitty to move the water bowl across the room just to see the water splash over onto the floor, he would empty large bowls of water that way. Lively until the end, just last week he was still up to a lot of his old tricks and antics…chasing stuffed mice behind the couch….playing with toys and laying on me as often as he could catch me in a position that made it possible.
I will be lost without him, what is worse I know that Vinni will be lost without him. Vinni is 20 years old as well and they have been together every since Vinni walked through our door at the age of 3 as a stray. Vinni is laying beside me now, hasn’t eaten for the last couple of days, I feel due to Monty becoming so ill, so quickly.
My only hope is that Vinni will rebound and stay with us awhile longer, though I know he will be lonely. We will do what we can to comfort each other, I only hope it will be enough for Vinni to stay even though he has lost his best friend and mate.
Play well at Rainbow Bridge, Monty you have so many loved ones there already to greet you. I love you old man….now you have a chance to be young again. Until we meet again some day, please remember me as I will remember and love you.
