I am really getting behind and I apologize. All of these farewell posts seem to be taking a bit of a toll on me. I will get them all done, though.
Icon Baxter Bentley was a very loving cat toward his humans. He seemed to more tolerate the other cats in his life than really get along with them. He had a lot of other cats in his life, because his Mom is a foster Mom and takes in foster cats and kittens on a regular basis. Icon was really never mean to the fosters, but he did whap them and growl at them if they got too close to him. Icon really loved to play with toys, but he didn't play much at all with other cats, even the ones who lived with him permanently. He got a neurological condition in his lumbar spine and it made life miserable for him in a very short time. He had to be helped to the Bridge because of pain and paralysis. I don't really know if he went gently, but I bet he was glad to go, where he could be well again.
Icon just got sicker and sicker.
His Mom wanted to help him quicker.

To the Bridge went gently.
Now he runs and runs, quicker and quicker.
