This is Charlie.
He's quite possibly the best cat ever. Chatty, bossy, demanding, frisky, presumptuous, and a complete and utter love bug. I adopted him from Pets In Need (http://www.petsinneed.org/
) on October 22, 2000. As his age at the time was questionable, I've always used a range and currently it's somewhere between 15 and 18 years old. You'd never know it to look at him, though - forever playful and always on the hunt for a good lap.
The letter was written by his previous owner and included as part of his adoption packet. I never met her and I don't know her full story, but I'm sure it was very difficult to say goodbye to Charlie. How can anyone possibly say goodbye to the best cat ever??
