Roy's Farewell

The world has lost an amazing cat.

Laurie, aka Crazy Aunt Purl, lost her dearest furry friend Roy yesterday. He passed away from an inoperable brain tumor. Having been loved by a once-in-a-lifetime non-human soulmate myself (Vincent, the Cat of All Cats), I can only imagine how much she is hurting tonight.

Should I be surprised that the current comment tally for Roy's tribute post is 1,089 and rising? The empathy of bloggers continues to amaze me and it brings tears to my eyes.

Godspeed, Roy—the most beloved cat on the internet. Go rest high upon that mountain.

Must go and squeeze the stuffing out of my five cats now.
