"We never knew his birthdate, showed up at our door one day as a stray and we knew right away he was coming in! In 1997, the vet said about 4, so that made him about 15 when he passed.
It's been a long day for both of us. With the exception for Bumpers, it was the longest ride to the Pet Cemetery I had. Thinking of my Uncle Wally the way out there whom told me Men must be strong and it is only OK for weak women and children to cry so I strained to preserve my manhood.

Feet was unique and used to piss me off!

1) He would climb in the Christmas tree and topple it over until I got smart one year and installed fishing line to the wall to secure it.

2) As I would walk in the hallway, he would run next to me, stop in front of me where I would almost trip over him. I landed on my ass twice with this little stunt of his.

3) Cooking food was a joke, up on the kitchen counter and he would try to eat everything. He would steal raw meat VERY QUICK!!

4) What I miss the most, he would sit on the top of Dawn's chair, and if I stood by it he would get up on his hind legs and extend his paw and tap me!!
