Ratso. You died almost a week ago.
It was love at first sight 16 years ago. Thank for being such a great friend and bringing so much joy. Your badass ways, strong will, adventurous nature, great loyalty, and zest for life. So curious and unflappable. Always wanted to be with me and in the middle of things whether doing chores like cooking or changing sheets or sleeping next to me while it worked or on top of me at night. When guests came you always wanted to know them...and go through their bags. You were such a warrior.. beating cancer 2x and handling other conditions with your standard grace. How when going to the vet you would lay on my shoulder and everyone would come by to say hi to you as you were a celebrity there ....and on the car rides home you would sometimes be on my shoulder looking at the world.
I remember when someone forced me to give you away and how I cried knowing it just wasn't right and how within 24 hours that person brought you back saying you were acting crazy and mean. As soon as she brought you back you were fine. You knew where you were supposed to be too. I was so happy made it clear you would not be leaving again.
Goofy and sweet. Respected by your brothers cats. I know the last 6 months were tough and I am sorry for that. I hope I always did right by you. You werre the very best and i was always so happy to have you here. So many wonderful memories. I will miss you always. You could have not been more loved.
And Little Rat... if there be a rainbow bridge, I know you won't follow any rules and will cross back and forth whenever you feel like it and do whatever you want....just like always...
