I brought my baby Boots home 17 yrs. ago when he was 6 weeks old. I had just lost a 10 yr. old female to cancer. I still had a 16 yr. old female that I lost acouple months later to kidney failure. Boots was all boy and a rascal, very robust when he was a baby. Threw the years, he mellowed. About 3 yrs. ago he was put on Thyroid medicine and did well. A little over a year ago he became deaf but he was still my baby. We knew each other so well, I still talked to him and it was like he knew what I was saying. He wanted love when he wanted it. He would sleep curled up in my arm when he wanted and would even push my 11 yr. old Tiger out of the way. He lost weight but was still king of the house. I also have another 11 yr. old Reggie, a big orange and white male.

I lost my beloved Boots on June 23, 2013. We believe he had a stroke. I noticed it on Monday and he passed over the Rainbow Bridge late Saturday night. I thought my heart would burst out of my chest from sobbing. I've never had an animal cremated but I have my baby with me now and forever. I love Reggie and Tiger. Tiger's my love bug, but all three had such different personalities. No one will ever replace my Boots. He was a rascal to the end. In the picture taken just this past March, he was trying to get in my guacamole, and he did!
