    Just wondering, would it be distasteful to post a pic of my Freddie...as I found him that awful morning? There's nothing gory or anything, he just looks asleep.

    How's this? No one need look if they'd rather not.
    As mentioned earlier, Freddie still had his bandana on from the day before. He died peacefully in his sleep, with Teddy Bear, his favorite toy, nearby.

    Here he is in much happier times, following me around the yard with Teddy Bear in his mouth:

    Teddy Bear now lives on the top shelf of my closet. I left him in my room for awhile, but it was just too sad seeing him every day. :(

    Anyone who’s ever owned a cat (er, been owned by a cat!) knows this scenario only too well...

    @MoodyBlues, I was sorry to hear about your Freddie. It’s so hard to say goodbye to our dear, faithful furriends. Sending you hugs and warm thoughts.

    You're welcome. :)

    I promise you, though, there's nothing disturbing there. Freddie just looks like he's asleep. But knowing that he's actually dead could certainly be sad/painful for some, hence the spoiler.

    This is so true! Of my current brood, Big Brian is the one! He meows and carries on and races to the kitchen when a human appears. You'd think he hadn't eaten in days...except for the always-full bowl of dry food down 24/7.

    Not sure if this TED-ED talk qualifies but it is enlightening.

    Thank you. :)

    Although he's been gone for years now, I still PROFOUNDLY miss him. His death left a huge void in my heart, my life, and my house. I'm glad I have tons of photos! Like this from one of our drives up into the mountains, with Freddie wearing his Marine Corps bandana, a gift from my friend, a USMC veteran:

    This is Big Brian, whose real name came while I was talking to my best friend on the phone, and said, "WHAT am I going to name this stray cat?!", to which she replied, "Brian Setzer!" So that's his official name, but everyone calls him Big Brian (you'll see why in a moment).

    Here he's checking out my vet's office for the first time:

    BigBrian_110212_6.jpg

    Here he's squeezed himself into a box; for a size comparison, look below for Joy Noelle in the same box:

    BigBrian_072013_7.jpg

    Joy Noelle--a much better fit!

    JoyNoelle_071713_02.jpg

    Big Brian has the most beautiful, sky blue eyes!

    True, but you know that cat would be FURIOUS with him if he knew his owner took that picture and people were laughing at it... :D :D

    This is as much about the cat as the photographer...

    Looking at the cat photobombing the shot, I have to think he got her the mug...

    Big Brian has been so sad since my grandsons left, he's hanging his head so low, it's buried:
