He was alway an outdoor cat, he liked to come inside but didn't believe in litter boxes. This made things difficult. He had a good long run. Almost 20 years old. Christine acquired him when she was in college at Oxford I guess.
Fare well dear friend. I'm going to miss his warm and cold nature. Cold was leave me alone. Warm was a cat who could cuddle, curl up on your lap or beg for time with you on the bed. If he was inside and there was a fresh pile of laundry on the bed, he was on it in a flash.
