Mighty Hunter

We lost our Mighty Hunter sometime last night. He found us as a yowling big fluff of orange in a parking lot 16 years ago. He was an orange tabby's orange tabby. He talked constantly, tried to drag squirrels into the house, peed on every rubber mat I ever tried to put down and slept next to me with his paw on my arm. We knew his time was very near but it doesn't make today easier. He was the senior member of our family and I feel like I have lost a part of my past. I am going to miss my Gabe.

I'm sorry about your loss. A good cat is a good friend.

I am so very sorry.

The word "pet" doesn't begin to cover what they mean to us. They are beloved, but they are also not really "ours," are they?

Peace to you in your loss.
