It makes me extremely sad to tell you that two of my favorite people lost their best 4 legged friend. The photo is Uncle John (who originally rescued me) and Best Ray, and their little guy, Nikky. He was a cranky old man even as a kitten! He had been part of our little "family" almost as long as I have. He was not very tolerant of all of my Uncle's other furry friends, but he and I had an understanding. He had been a very sick little guy just recently. My Uncles did everything they could for him, right until the very end. We all love him very much and know he will watch over us from wherever he is.
