My darling Rufus, you came into my life 6 months after Saffron had died. I saw you at the Shopping Mall, standing all alone and scared and I brought you home with the intention of giving you to friends. But you knew different, you captured my heart and I fell in love with you very quickly. My ginger tom with the beautiful markings who looked like a lion and walked like a tiger. You will always be the special one, the last cat our complete family had, one by one you are leaving me and it's breaking my heart. I read it was the end of an era when a dog died, well it's the end of an era and your world when your beloved cat dies. I hope you knew I was only doing what was right for you, I never wanted to end the way it did. My darling Rufus, my friend for nearly 14 years, I miss you so much, til we meet again.
