Goodbye, Sunny

Sunny came to us about six years ago, almost to the day. He had been abandoned by someone near a friend's house, and my friend had been taking care of him, but as an outside cat, as she was very allergic to cats. She asked if I knew of a place to take abandoned animals, and could I help, because I was not allergic to cats.

When I met this huge, furry cat, I was instantly won over by his friendliness. I wondered who would abandon this beautiful, friendly cat. Instead of going to the animal rescue, he stayed on our patio. When it started to rain, he came into our house. 

But he was a cat who was used to being on his own. He regularly hunted, catching mice, rats, birds, squirrels, and even a bat (once). When he got older, he learned to make friends around the neighborhood, regularly eating meals at several houses.

I am sure that he will be missed, by us and also the neighbors who fed him, they kids that played with him, and the old lady up the street who brushed him.
