Tonight my kitty brother Willie passed away.  He was here in our apartment, purring and whipping around that extra-furry tail of his, and then we think he had a massive heart attack.  Mama did her very best to hold him and pet him, but in almost an instant, he left us.

Willie joined our furry family only a few years ago – he originally belonged to one of mama and dad’s good friends, and when she passed away he came to live with us.  Aside from a few small differences of opinion (which he generally won), I loved my pal Willie.  He was a long-haired orange tabby, very light of foot and sweet of disposition (except when he was pissed off at me, or when he wanted to pass me in the hallway).  A real handsome devil indeed, expert treat procurer, and from what mama tells me, a warm bed buddy.

A (mostly) gentle giant, Willie even managed to charm this Dale even though he had never lived with dogs before.  I will miss his spirited debates, that gigantic tail that could take you out as he ran by, and the way he made mama so happy.

Run wild and free Willie… WE LOVED YOU SO
