Rex the Cat
1999 - 3/7/2006
His time with me was short, only three years and three
months, but in that time he gave all the love he had.
Rex was an amazing companion. He was a rescue,
and so no one knew what kind of life he had up to the point that he moved in
with me. The rescue shelter had named him "Beau", but when I saw how
regale he was I named him "Rex".
At first Rex hated Rocky, my dog, but he soon figured
out that Rocky was harmless. Disgusting, but harmless.
Rex would always meet me at the gate when I got home
from work. He'd be sitting on the fence right by the gate, and he would
jump down as I entered the gate and follow me to the front door, where he'd
patiently wait for me to fumble around with the keys and open the door.
About a year ago Rex came down with allergies that made
him itch, and then about four months ago he developed problems with his
digestive system and started losing weight. He just withered away...
I miss my steadfast companion. The pain of losing
a loved one is so intense, but I try to remember that this pain is just a
small fraction of the huge amount of joy that Rex gave me every day that he
I wish I'd taken more pictures of him...
Happy trails, Rex. You were the best.
