Fare thee well Edgrrr...
About 5 years ago I adopted 2 cats, brothers, Edrrr and George. George, sadly went missing a few years ago.
Last night, Edgrrr was killed by a coyote. I got word while I was traveling home and it was hard news to take. I'm more or less on my own and the cats are the only source of constant companionship I have. Edgrrr was a special sort of cat in that he was always very happy to see me and was a rolly polly 20 pound ball of purr. An ex and I rescued a kitten ~3 years ago, Edgrrr was a very tolerant foster dad to that kitten being very companionable and at some point a bit too tolerant of Barrett's pushy nature.
As a cat, his main mode was laying about with a side of lazing about. He'd get up from inside the house and go out to lay on a bench in the back yard in the sun. A few years ago he got an abscess and the vet who treated him said he was the most laid back cat she'd ever had the pleasure of dealing with.
I'm already missing the big lumpus terribly.
