As Trissy told you, I was his brother, except
that I was a beautiful Blue Burmese, not an
American Shorthair like him. Donít you
think I was more handsome than him?
I was always shyer than Trissy and would wait
until he made sure that it was safe before I
followed him anywhere. I was like his shadow
for the longest time, but then I discovered what
fun there was to be had out there. It was
even more fun when I realized that I was quicker
than Trissy was and always came out looking like
the innocent party while Trissy would get scolded
for something Iíd done. He didnít like
that very much! One day the humans caught me
instead of Trissy and it was his turn to laugh!
Oh, Trissy and I did have fun Ė we were
always chasing flies or each other, especially in
the wee hours of the morning when our humans were
sleeping. That way they didnít get
in our way when we were running up and down the
halls. They yelled at us a few times, but we
just pretended we didnít hear them. We
were pretty good at hiding too when they came
upstairs to separate us!
I was a very affectionate "kritter"
and would always head-butt anyone who came close
enough. At the same time, I would purr loudly and
this, of course, would get me more pets and
loves. I especially liked the female human
and most times would come to her when she
called. A few times I was too busy playing
and didnít bother, but she never got angry.
When I was 7 I got really sick and
couldnít hold any food down. My humans
took me to the vet and put me through lot of tests
and thatís how they found out that I had a fast
growing, inoperable stomach cancer called
carcinoma. They allowed me to cross
the Rainbow Bridge on March 11, 1997. Here
are a few pictures of me and of Trissy and me. I
am missed very much. Read the story of the
Rainbow Bridge at our RAINBOW BRIDGE SITE.
