Farewell, Sox

I haven't been online much lately because of the holidays, now I find that I have four of these to do. I hope I can do them all justice.

Sox was a very cuddly and loving cat. He was the cat most likely to be found snuggling a bean or another cat at his house. He was also very active and mischievous. He liked to explore shelves, to see what was up there. He loved to sit by an open window and look at the birds. He was sometimes called Mr. Houdini, because he got very good at running out of any open door, but then his People got very good at watching out for him and his escapes came to an end. He never went very far when he got out and was easily brought back inside. He and his brother Cubby originally belonged to a lady who died of cancer about a year ago. Her son couldn't take care of Cubby and Sox, because he was away at college. Various things were tried, but last February, Sox and Cubby came to live with the other cats and beans at Irish Coda. Sox was about eleven years old. He got a tumor under his tongue that couldn't be treated. When it became apparent that he was suffering, his Mom and Dad helped him to the Rainbow Bridge.

                                  We now say farewell to dear little Sox.
                                   He was a sweet kitty; we will miss him lots.
                                          He loved to cuddle
                                          And sleep in a huddle
                                   With brother Cubby, who will really miss Sox.
