Blackie was the gentlest animal I knew. With extremely soft fur Blackie was a pleasure to pet. He loved being petted too.
The vet said he lived to a ripe old age for a cat. Boots is his litter mate, and so is Whiskers. I don't even want to think about that.
We are all upset about this. Mom was devastated. I know I would have liked to talk to someone, but it seems no one I know is home right now.
