Rumpole


For fifteen years, Rumpole was the greatest cat ever.  He wasn't the smartest of cats, and there's no way anybody who saw him try to jump on the couch would call him graceful, but he was everything you'd want in a cat.  Affectionate, playful, funny, and almost never grumpy.  Essentially, he was my cat.  When I went to visit Momzerduck and Ph.Duck, he'd always come running and be waiting at the door for me.  When I was sick, say from having a tooth removed, he'd come stay with me at Pond Central for a week or two, just to help cheer me up.  He was my buddy, my pal, and a great friend.  Just a week ago, he came back from the vet, with a diagnosis of "okay, but old."  He'd lost a few pounds since his last visit, and had slowed down dramatically.

Over at Fark, someone made a LOLcat out of his picture that perfectly summed him up:

Today, we had to put Rumpole to sleep.  I can't stop crying.

Oh, I am so sorry to hear that.  Sincerest condolences on the loss of your wonderful pet.  "Pet" just doesn't seem like the right word, though, when a cat becomes a member of the family and a pal and a ray of sunshine. 

He was a beautiful cat!

3 WOW! I am soooo sorry to hear about your loss. It's never easy to lose a loved one. Our furry family members can be the most dear to us, and as such, so much pain is involved when they pass on. My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
