Mystery wandered into our lives a few years ago. We don’t know where he came from, but once he got here, he stayed. He considered his neutering surgery a gift of love and rarely left the “garden” after he came home from the animal hospital. He guarded our house, and most importantly, he guarded our Robin.
She fell in love with him and cared for him through many illnesses in the last couple of years. They worked together to keep his body and her heart in one piece. He had FIV and received attentive veterinary care to help him fight infections. He had a good life here with us, mostly in the “garden” but recently, he spent more and more time in the house. His last illness was rough on him, and he suffered from the effects of it.
Tonight, he cried out in pain for the last time.
Farewell, guard cat. Please, stay near our Robin. She needs a guardian angel as strong and beautiful as you.
