Friends and Kitties!
The Mommy here.
I want to express a huge Thank You to all of you from Scott and I, your kind comments on the blog and Facebook after Sylvester's passing have been very comforting.
We miss our big ole Tuxieman lounging around the house, and on the Catio. Sylvester delighted in being outdoors, if the weather was fine he'd snooze for hours in the sun, baking. I'll never forget his wonder the first time he explored the Catio--we don't think he'd ever been "outdoors" before.
He had the best set of "Bat Signal" ears, and a musical meow. He wasn't terribly talkative, but he always was good for a "Bless You"...inevitably (if he heard us) he'd pllrrrowl after a sneeze.
He was a good sport...
...and he put up with our shenanigans with good humor.
Sylvester wasn't much for toys, but he adored his Spotted Red Mousie, which was his toy. I saved Mr. Mousie to put with Sly's ashes...it seemed right.
Our big guy was a big fan of chicken, bacon, steak, ham, tuna, salmon, mackerel...it took a lot of food to maintain his 20 pound figure!
Catnip was essential as well.
Most of all, Sylvester loved his Daddy. The two of them spent hours together every day, "working" in the office. Sly was tolerant of my loving on him, but his Daddy could maul him and he'd come running back for more. Although *I* was the only one allowed to Touch his tummy--but only in the bathroom on the rug--and only if he requested it.
We are so happy that we adopted him.
The past six years have been a joy.
Farewell, sweet boy.
We love you, always.
