Our Faithful Companion

When I turned 16 I got my first job at Micky D's so that I could save up for my first car, but before I bought that I went out and bought myself a kitten at the humane society. After two years I had to leave him at home when I went off to college. After Phil finished college we moved to Portland where we found an apartment that allowed cats so I got my kitty back after 6 years apart. I named him Tippy but Phil renamed him Lankston for being so long and lanky, so he was known by both names. He was very smart, affectionate and a great mouser. He was our faithful companion for 15 years but last week he took a turn for the worse and we had to put him down, he was an awesome kitty. Good bye faithful companion you will be greatly missed! : (

1998 he'd fall asleep in your hands, it was so sweet!
1999 my distraction from homework : )
We told the boys what was happening in toddler terms and we had them all give him a hug 
and lots of kisses

How sad, it is always so hard. The good thing is that you know you gave him a good home and lots and lots of love.
Sorry for your loss, my love to you all,

That is a hard decision to make, we cried buckets over our dog three years ago.
Rescued pets are the best, they seem to know to be extra grateful, and your kitty had three times the love.
