My daughter Cait, wrote this the day he died.....
Today, I lost a dear friend/brother/pet... Rufie, my baby kitty, was put down. He was my first kitten, and truly such an awesome little guy. I will never ever forget the first time I saw him, from that first moment, I was in love with this little black and white spitfire that could not decide if he hated me or loved me.... You will be missed so much Rufie, not only by me, and I really hope that your heaven has an always full bowl of friskies and bacon on the weekends. I love you buddy, and thank you for giving us seven years. Rest in peace.
These were the last pics that I took of him........ they're not very good, but that's ok, this is how he was. He was such a big boy...even the vet commented on his size. He was sitting in the chair watching me stitch pillow tops. He was always, always, always close by to me. And I never felt alone, until now...
I have been working on this for hours and have had all kinds of computer problems, but I wanted y'all to know what happened to me.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS and I have missed you all!
