Frisbee 1995-2012



Frisbee had been ill for almost a year, not that anyone seemed to have told him. We thought we’d lose him in early 2011, but with treatment he perked up and was right back to his old tribble-purred self. And then, right smack dab in the middle of the holidays just passed, his health took a major nose-dive. But, being Frisbee, he held on a while longer, and quite enjoyed sitting under our first Christmas tree.

We didn’t even get Frisbee until a few years ago when his people had to move away. I didn’t complain. I’d known him for years, and he was more than welcome. He was originally supposed to join them when everything got settled, but I was selfishly pleased to keep him. He enjoyed play fighting with Sam, our tabby. He kept my MIL company during the day. He had the most amazing silent meow that he would occasionally use if extreme cuteness was required. The most laid back and mellow cat I’ve ever met was our Fris. I mean…he let small children use him as a pillow and had none of the traditional vacuum fear. Mind you, woe betide anyone who didn’t wake up when he wanted them to. He’d go from batting your face to licking your eye to just curling up on your head, depending upon the situation.

I’ll miss his habit of curling up on anyone lying down long enough. My iPad isn’t quite as much fun, now that he isn’t constantly trying to sit on it. My kitchen is empty in the morning when he’d normally be begging for treats. I even miss the “claws-in-my-thigh-pay-attention-to-me” thing.

We miss you Mr Frissers, and we hope you’ve found a nice warm vent to sleep next to in Heaven.

    Beautiful

    I know he could not have found better people to take care of him, considering the circumstances. He is the cat we all compare our cats to.

    That is a beautiful eulogy. We all miss him terribly. He was the most cuddly, loving cat ever. He also used to let little kids carry him, holding him under his armpits and dragging his back legs on the ground and he wouldn’t care. His purr was so loud it could be heard several rooms away. He would greet people at the door. He loved being taken for walks outside and people would gawk at a cat walking on a leash. He was, quite simply, the best cat ever. We are all indebted to you for the love and care you gave him and all the pictures and videos you took of him. Thank you.

    As you say. A king among cats.

    Aww, babe… Having gone through this loss twice in 2011, I know. I know.

    Huge condolences. And kitty kisses from Milo and Lucy, my hard-to-remember-they’re-the-replacements set.

    Thanks to you and the kitties. 5 years in this apt, and we’ve lost 3 cats in that time. *sigh*
