Milton died today. My special cat. A female orange tabby (only 1 in 50 orange tabbies are female) I was fortunate enough to bottle raise with a litter of kittens 14 years ago.
For her entire 14 years, Miltie was the sweetest most loving cat on the planet and only tipped the scales at 6 lbs, kind of like an eternal kitten.
She loved everyone and everything equally and always had a purr and a head bump and a snuggle for anyone or anything who came close to her. I will miss her terribly and I wish I could cancel Thanksgiving because even though I give thanks to have spent 14 years with her I am not feeling much like celebrating this week.
|This is Milton.|
There are some more nice words about and photos of Miltie here.
