TC Memorial

Today we had to say goodbye to our 16 1/2 year old cat, Teela Comet, better known as TC, who was suffering from cancer.  When our 19 year old cat, Miss Kitty, died in 1992, we went to the Northeast Animal Shelter and got TC.  A couple of months later we went back and got Gandalf.  In 1993 our yellow lab, Beta, joined the family, and finally, we adopted Butch from a friend.  TC was the last of the pets we had with the kids growing up, so her passing marks the end of an era.

TC is survived by Casey, and we have adopted another cat to try to fill the hole left by TC.

Below are some pictures of TC.  While most of the photos show her at rest (she was a creative sleeper), she also loved to play, especially with threads.  She had the best purr in the universe, and while she was shedding weight during her illness, we were sure that she would fade away like the Cheshire cat, leaving only a purr.

Feel free to leave us comments.
