Orlando, Florida 1992, Figaro The Cat was adopted and quickly became a great companion for my little dog, Bradley. For the next eleven years, Figaro and Bradley were best buddies.
Figaro was the sweetest cat, he never, ever hissed-- his entire life. He was incredibly docile and mellow, with a strong affinity for baked salmon.
In November of 2003, Figaro's life was turned upside down when we brought our first child home from the hospital and two days later his best buddy, who had been very ill for about a year, finally had to be put to sleep.
After adding a second child to the mix, we moved from Dallas to Florida. Then a year later we picked up and went to Australia while he stayed in Florida with my mom.
My mom has been the sole support person for us since we've been in Australia.
Mom, I hope you really do read my blog...
In the last year and a half you've taken such wonderful care of the cat, and we really appreciate it. Thank you for brushing him, snuggling him, and making him purr so loud we could hear him through the phone.
We know you gave him all kinds of special attention, and it's so comforting for us to know how much you loved him.
Thanks Mom, I love you.
Figaro, a.k.a. Figgy, you will be missed.
