Inspired by @LeahG Maybe this is a good day for a lighthearted li.st for my gone but not forgotten best friend. It's been a year today.
  1. Kobe May 2002-August 2015
    Best cat I ever had. Quirkiest and most neurotic OCD feline but the most expressive & unique personality. He had our hearts from the beginning.
  2. 6 weeks old
    It was fate. My friend Cammie asked me to go with her to a garage sale. (Not really my thing, so...) Along with the piles of clothes and knick-knacks, was a sign, Free Kittens, posted over a shed. I WAS JUST GONNA LOOK-already had two cats. It was love at first sight. Isn't he adorable?
  3. Should have started a YouTube channel for him.
    This cat made sounds and talked like no cat I've ever seen. Can't believe I never recorded it.
  4. Liked to be carried around.
    Would jump from the window ledge to my shoulder and didn't want me to put him down.
  5. Teenage Kobe
    Puberty is tough on all species.
  6. His two bossy older brothers, Magic & Kareem
    When you actually think about it, it's strange to have animals living in your house.
  7. A present for you!
  8. In his prime.

  9. Does this make me look...
  10. The Money Shot
    Come on, is this not one of the most beautiful cats you've ever seen?
  11. Wait for it...
    Bro code says cats are cool. Barney may have used another word 😼
  12. Likes the good vibes
    In the music room. I'm surprised he found a place that wasn't cluttered with Fake Books, cords and guitar paraphernalia.
  13. "The fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on".

  14. Time waits for no cat.
    It was better not knowing time would be short.
  15. His very last day
    So very sick. We paid extra to have the vet come to our house. I just couldn't bear the thought of him being terrified, going to the vet on his last day. Worth every penny.

    Bye little buddy ❤️
