Saying Goodbye to Pumpkin

We said goodbye to our Pumpkin today.

He was almost 18 and had been in bad health, but we will miss him dearly. This was a picture of him a year ago enjoying one of his favorite activities: drinking dripping water from the faucet.

We adopted him 13 years ago from the Clearfield County SPCA along with his sister, Princess. Pumpkin was reaching out through the bars, meowing, and putting on quite the show in his effort to be adopted. Princess was hiding in the corner. They were a package deal so we agreed to take them both. Once home, Princess, came out of her shell and she is helping us through this painful time, along with Lucy, Benjamin, Emily, and Tucker.



  1. I'm so sorry. I hope your good memories of Pumpkin rise up to fill the next few weeks. Sending hugs your way, my dear.

  2. Oh no, I'm so sorry. I love my cats beyond measure so I do understand how hard it can be to lose someone who has been by your side for so long. Our cats are people to us. It does sound like he lived a long happy life and brought you much happiness. Big hugs to you, your husband, and all the other kitties.


Ooh,a comment! How delightful.
