|Bob the Cat ?/1998 – 12/2017|
Bob passed away early in the morning last Saturday. We are all still adjusting to his absence. He has left a hole in our home and our hearts. Bob had more than his share of physical problems, and limitations. He must have been in pain much of the time. And yet he was always happy, always purring, always wanting a lap and a head scratch.
When someone was upset, or crying Bob would find them and try to offer comfort. It usually worked.
Despite his many health problems, he outlived several other cats in this household. His doctor put this down to his pleasant nature, his calm personality, and that he never worried or got stressed no matter what he was going through.
I still catch myself looking for him, or worrying about him, or just wanting to hold him. I don’t expect those feeling to go away very fast.
