My Einstein


So sad to report that Steinie has passed. At just before three this morning he quietly and peacefully breathed his last after being cradled in my arms since midnight. I knew his time was near when he allowed me to complete the Sunday crossword without sprawling across the newspaper to demand attention from me. My tape-licking, tuna-loving, glasses-destroying tux who adored flowers and pined for my hoya plant whose favorite toy was a bottle cap is gone. I loved him so much. If the saying is true that dogs have masters, cats have staff, I am honored to have served him for nearly nine years.

So sorry to hear...
I'm sure you made his time here the best it could have been and I bet he felt totally loved and adored every day of his life.

Thanks.

When he made a mess or shredded the carpet I was in the habit of calling him a miserable little bastard. He'd just forehead-bump me and purr and look expectant as if it was treat time. He totally saw through any of my attempted disciplinary actions. I loved him a lot and I believe he knew it. You can't keep a secret from a cat.
