In Memory of...

R.I.P. my friend.  
I will miss you greatly!

Such a great companion.  Always wanting to be close to his mommy.

I went home with a friend one day in college and her kitchen was filled with kittens.
They were climbing all over me and he caught my eye.
He was sitting next to the leg of a wood stove just watching me.
I had to take him home!!!
He stayed with me in my college dorm room for the rest of the year 
and he has been with me every step of the way 
until yesterday... He was almost 18 years old.

He was always a part of the group.  

This is shortly after we moved from D.C. to FL.

As usual, Gus loved to get into boxes or even my luggage.  
Whenever I would travel, he would get in thinking 
he could come too!  
Just a few weeks ago when I was getting packed for Dallas... 
there he was all curled up in my luggage.

He LOVED to cuddle.  He used to sleep with his head on 
one pillow and with the blankets up to his neck.  
Just like his mommy.

 What a great friend.  I will miss you bubba!
Here he is with his pal Chloe.
She already misses him too!

He is now in kitty heaven.... 
forever to be missed.
