Allegro's August Adiós

Allegro was a wonderful Abyssinian we had the pleasure to know. love, and care for 17 years.
He was Elaine's momma's boy, and as we watched his health deteriorate from diabetes and old age, we prepared ourselves for the day he would no longer be with us.

We brought him to the West Greenwich Animal Hospital on August 15,2009 for the last time.
His body was laid to rest with Adagio and Liberty under the Apple tree, near the bridge.

Sadness drained our bodies for awhile and we still miss his loving being...
Yet, we are thankful we had time to say good bye, and know we gave his a loving home for all of his long life.

We will always remember his loving purr, handsome face, and loving nature.

We also remember our young daughters, (Julia at 3 years old and Nicole at 8 years old) as they played with him as a new kitten, feeding him bottles and put bibs on him..
He accepted their tender loving antics as young girls with gentle humility.

We remain thankful for the years we shared with our dear feline friend.
Forever in our hearts he will live.

Elaine, I'm so sorry for all your losses this year. I'm watching now as my two old, much-loved, kitties are showing wear and tear. I agree with your view on being grateful for the time we get to spend with our animal companions. I keep meaning to email, but I want to let you know here that both Tia and Opus are doing very well, and that Opus shows some signs of developing his daddy's "Elvis" locks. Take care, and you are in my thoughts!!
