Cat: Downey – Beacon, New York (04/2002 – 02/28/2010)
Downey (American Short Hair Cat) was so loved by everyone. He was a baby even though he was 8 years old.
He followed me, his mom everywhere I went. He was a healthy fat cat. Lazy in his own way.
I called him Downey Bear. His name totally fit him. When ever I would call him he would come running.
Today Feb. 28, I had to put him to sleep. He had a tumor in his stomach as big as a baseball.
It kills me knowing he won’t run to greet me at the door anymore.
I loved him so much …. more than anything.
We grew up together.
He is and will always be my baby.
