My mom's sweet black kitty Mickey died today. He was 12 years old. I remember the day I tried to talk my mom out of taking him home from the pet store, and we called my sister at work to cast the tie-breaking vote. I'm so glad I lost!
He was a very lovey kitty who would give lots of face kisses if you'd let him. If one of us was sick he was always right there on the bed or couch with us keeping us company. He let Jack cuddle up next to him whenever he wanted. I will miss him very much. =(
