Farewell, Old Friend

OrionWith a heavy heart, we say goodbye to Orion. 16 years young, he was the best mouser and most cuddly cat you ever met. Each person who met Orion was treated to a slobbery hello and a warm belly pet. The poor old man dissappeared while we were at the State Fair.

He was there to say goodbye as we got in the car, and he left a mouse in the strawberry bed for us to remember him by. There were wild animals in the vicinty, so he probably became prey to a larger animal.

We’re sorry to see the old man leave. He’s been with us since kittenhood, when we found him at a farm store in Tanque Verde. He was a sweetheart and a hard worker.
