Mel 1993-4/20/10


Recommended Posts

Mel was my first cat. I was so excited to graduate from college, get my first apartment and my first pet





He was such a cute kitty and put up with so much



Big hair :lol He used to paw at it



Then he got fat :lol



In 1997 we moved to Alaska and he loved it



He loved to hide



And hang out with his sister, Sili



He always had to check everything out




He loved water- especially running water



2 years ago we moved to a new house. He HATED car rides



He went crazy over pot roast



Picture my brother took last November


More coming....

Yesterday took him out in the garden to roam a bit (he was not an outdoor cat)



Watching the water



Hanging out in the garden one last time today



He used to always wait until I was done in the shower and then jump in. This was his last time in the shower yesterday



Sparks watching over him last night



Snuggling with Lucky last night



He loved to lay in the grass- took him out one last time today





He was my official "greyhound safe" cat and kept over 30 hounds in line over the years

Sparks was scared to death of him at first. If Sparks even looked his direction, Mel would race across the room and smack him across the snout! :lol

Mikey wasn't 100% cat safe but Mel gave him a what for and he learned his lesson



He was always so nosy



Some times he had to sit on them to get them to behave :lol



The final picture I took of him today. His sister Sili is buried right there and he's now next to her




I'm now catless for the first time in 17 years. I still can't believe it. I don't plan on getting another cat but am so grateful for the 2 wonderful cats that I did have for so many years.


Thanks for looking at all my pic, sorry there's so many but he was my first fur kid

Thank you Foley Blvd Animal Hospital for the wonderful care we got today. They really made it bearable.


I already miss him like crazy

I'm sorry he had to leave you.


I can see him now, leaving faucets on all over the Bridge just so he can play. :wub:

I am not a cat person, but your pictorial brought tears to my eyes. I am so sorry for your loss.

I am so very, very sorry. Mel looks like a wonderful kitty. He was obviously happy and loved and enjoying his life to the very end. He looks so much like my cat Carey, who's also getting on in years.




I'm so sorry, too, that you're catless ... I could never live without a cat.
