Baby was a member of our family. He just showed up one day and he was so loving that we let him stay.
His personality was a cross between a dog and person. He was sweet, silly, yet sometimes ridiculously persnickety.
Whenever we had visitors he became their best friend. I don't think he realized that he was over twenty pounds as he was leaping up into someones arms like a kitten.
He loved to lounge with the kids on the couch and he rudely had my husband and I clinging to our own sides of the bed as he stretched across the middle.
He was especially cuddly if one of us happened to be ill. He let our tiny chihuahua puppy chew on his ears and he watched our hens like a guard dog.
He loved to have his tummy rubbed and happily followed me around the garden. We miss him terribly. I would give just about anything to find another cat just like him.
