||Deceased, Three years old|
||Poughquag, New York, USA|
is our beloved Grimaldi, a.k.a. Baby G. He was not quite four
years old when he passed away after suffering complications related to
Feline HCM. He came to live with us after we discovered him and his two
brothers, Tycho and Copernicus, as tiny stray kittens who had been born
in our basement window well. Although our time with him was far too
short, we treasured every minute we spent with him. He was a most
beautiful cat, and he had a wonderful personality to match. He was also
deaf, but that never bothered him. In fact, it even had some
"benefits". On the 4th of July and during summer thunderstorms,
Grimaldi got to enjoy the "light show" through the windows, while his
brothers, who were scared of the loud noises, hid under the sofa.
Grimaldi cheerfully greeted everyone who came to our home and everyone
who met him loved him. He was our little helper with every kind of
household task from laundry and paperwork to woodworking projects. He
was a master mouser and loved to play tag and wrestle with his brothers.
Though they were both larger than him, it was most often Grimaldi who
initiated the kitty games. He snuggled and cuddled us to sleep each
night and cheerfully woke us up every morning. Baby G was very
talkative. He'd talk to himself as he walked around the house, he would
call his brothers when he wanted them to come play and he would call to
us whenever he wanted his beautiful belly rubbed. He was also quite a
little "ham" and loved to have his picture taken. For more pictures,
you can view his webpage.
Grimaldi was our special "Cat of the Day" every day and he will be
forever. The day after Grimaldi died, we saw the most beautiful
rainbow. It seemed to end in the garden where we buried him. Though are
hearts are broken over losing him, we know he is at peace in heaven.
Grimaldi, our sweet Baby G, thank you for so many wonderful memories.
We will never forget you and we love you always.
