Tribute to MISTER

It is with a heavy heart that I write our sad news on MISTER, my DH's beloved companion, passed away on Wednesday.

He took ill on Sunday with his little left back leg no longer working. DH rushed him to the vet on Monday morning. Lots of tests later showed that he had many medical problems and probably had cancer.

Mister came to our house several summers ago as a stray. From the onset DH and Mister were constant companions. When winter came Mister became part of the family. He loved DH very much, laying by the bathroom door, crying when DH went to work and loved being cradled in DH's arms. He definitely was a one man cat.

We will miss him very much. We're sure he's at Rainbow Bridge with our beloved dog Buddy Butte.

I was so sad to read this. I enjoyed the little slide show tribute. I am sure that Mister knew how lucky he was to have found a good home for his last years. Please tell your husband that I am very sorry that he lost his companion.

Sandy, I'm so sorry for your loss. Our pets ask so little of us yet contribute so much to the quality of our lives . . . and leave such a hole when they are gone.

Mister looks like our Smokey Anne, who is at the Rainbow Bridge...they could be twins. I'm sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is.

I'm so sorry for your loss. But at least he had a good home with your family for the latter part of his life.
