George, 9/2007-9/2021

I honestly never thought I could love a cat as much as I love you. Two days before Christmas in 2007, I got the idea that our family needed a cat and I envisioned you…a beautiful black cat with big green eyes. I called St Hubert’s Animal Shelter to see and sure enough, they said they had found a litter of kittens underneath the dumpster at Kings Supermarket. There was one kitten still available and I was told you were an adorable feisty little male and her favorite, named King George. I confirmed we wanted you and came early the next morning on Christmas Eve. I was so nervous that another family would get you. I believe you were meant for us and throughout the next 14 years, you brought all of us such tremendous joy, by simply being you. We laughed and endured all of the baby mice, rabbits, chipmunks and birds that you brought into the house. I’m sure you thought they were the perfect gifts for us. Just hugging you next to my heart immediately took away all of my stress and you purred and did it happily. We are so grateful to have had you as our cat and will love and miss you forever.
