Tony was the most amazing cat. He survived being hit by a car, animal control and losing a leg, all before I ever got him. After that, two major surgeries and years of medication. He always purred, always followed me around the house and always slept next to my pillow at night. There will never be another cat like Tony. He was one of a kind and I will love him and miss him until I see him again.|
I am adding Redford and Lily to this. I adopted Redford about a year after Tony's passing. I didn't plan on another cat. Lily and Jolly where enough but it was love at first sight. I am certain Tony sent Redford to me. He was an orange tabby. Sweet, funny and full of love. He was always waiting for me at the door when I came home. His tail would quiver and I'd pick him up and look into his eyes and tell him how much I loved him. He would look back at me with so much love sometimes it made me cry. We only had 5 yrs together but they were precious and I miss him so much.
Lily was adopted with Tony and was soft, gentle, beautiful. She was pure white and I loved her so much. We had 14 wonderful years together and I cherish them all. I will regret my decision to let her go for as long as I live. The guilt is overwhelming. I am trying to concentrate on the love and good memories and know they are all together. Healthy, happy and hopefully looking forward to seeing mom someday.
