Our beloved kitty of 12 years, Oreo, passed on today after having a stroke last night. He was a Valentine’s Day gift my husband gave me all those years ago, even before we expanded our family to include our three dogs. He fetched tin foil balls and obeyed commands to go to bed as well as asked to go out to 'potty' like one of the dogs. When he was young he got bit on the tongue by a carpenter ant that would not let go, it was quite a site to see this HUGE cat, he was nearly 22 lbs. at the time, to be crying to get the ant off. We loved you and will miss you SO MUCH that there will be no other cat like you!
