Jerry the Cat has gone to the big catnip farm in the sky. Our beloved cat used up his ninth life after kidney failure. He follows our beagle who passed in May. Now they can chase each other on the other side.
Jerry picked us when we went to the animal shelter fifteen years ago. Noelle wanted a cat because Justin had gotten his beagle. As we were walking down the aisle Jerry, a small kitten, reached his paw out of the cage and snagged Noelle's sweater. Well, what can you do but stop and say okay!
Jerry was an indoor and outdoor cat. In the summers he stayed outside at night. In the winters he lay in his laundry basket that had a very nice soft blanket in it just for him.
He was a pretty cool cat.
