There was Mellow who lived the longest of our first original cats. There was Tom, Whiskers, Precious, Duchess, Hairy, Alligator, Woo-Woo, Tiger, Zeeby (he just disappeared), Marie, Fluffy (who lived the longest of Hairy's kittens), Stripey, Burlose, Toulose, Alice, Little Mellow, Wild Kitty, Patches, Max, Beau, and many, many, many more. It's tough every single time they leave my life, but I know they're still around, even though I can't see them, I can still hear and/or feel them occassionally. Many of them died of old age, unknown causes, disappeared, distemper, put to sleep because of complications of feline leukemia, put to sleep because of old age, and some died not so pleasant deaths, but I remember every one of them, from what they sounded like to what they looked like to how they acted. I'll always love them, and now I'm starting to tear up so I think I'll stop. But they'll always hold a special spot in my heart.
