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.
