In memory of a Great CatPosted Sunday, April 12, 2009, at 7:01 PM
The story of this cat came about like most, he being a stray came to our house to "mooch."
He was a beautiful beige colour and he had the most talkitive personality I had seen on a cat.
He always followed you wherever you went and wanted to be a part of everything.
One day, I was getting in my car to pick my son up for school, this cat jumped in the car and settled down on the seat like he always had ridden with me.
He named this talkitive cat Gabby, because he was constantly talking to us.
He had a comment about everything. If you sat in the front yard with friends and a glass of tea, Gabby would chime in on the conversation.
I really miss him.
He came up sick on a saturday, and I watched him closely, thinking if he was not better I would take him the the doctor Monday.
Sunday morning came,Easter and Gabby was worse.
He was having seizures and convulsing. I knew then what was wrong.
He had been poisoned. Who would want to hurt this friendly cat was beyond me, but this was the 5th suspected poisoning among our neighborhood animals.
I had to rush him to the vet, and make the decision to euthanize Gabby. It was not hard seeing him suffer,
It was hard however, not to rip the face off the suspected person that has been doing this.
I dearly miss that cat. Rest in Peace with God my little friend. You are safe now.
