This little guy was my buddy for more than 11 years.
 
It is with great sadness that I announce that today Tibby passed away. He was a loving member of my family and we have many fond memories of him. He was a very loving cat who expressed a great deal of affection to me. Tibby's health deteriorated suddenly on Friday and we tried him on some medication until Monday when we could no longer bear to see him stuck in the same state any longer.

This picture is one taken on Christmas in 2008.
