Floppsy Kat – 2009 – 2/3/2013

Some careless driver robbed us of this lovely boy today.  Hit and killed.  

Floppsy came to us in 2009.  He was a “dump” cat…he’d been neutered and was used to lots of loving.  We’ve never understood why/how someone would’ve given him up.  He’s lived on our deck, slept in the greenhouse and befriended all the other strays who show up here.  He’s taken every step we have when we’ve walked the property or gone down to the bridge…better than any dog.

Floppsy was the sweetest, friendliest, most trusting cat.  He loved everyone…and we all loved him.    His only crime…being unafraid of vehicles.   He would welcome me home every afternoon by guiding the van into the carport.  He slept on the van…he was so trusting.  

And now, he’s gone.  And we’re heartbroken at the senseless loss of such a loving kitty.

  7. So sorry Susan. A couple of years ago, someone poisoned our Roscoe. He was a cat that we had rescued, and we loved him-still do.

  9. So sorry to hear about Floppsy. It is so hard to lose a beloved cat–he sounded like a jewel. He looked like our Jetta–the lovely long hair black/white fluff ball.
