Lupin could communicate with people better than any cat I’ve ever met, using taps, pats, and directing by leading one to a spot to tell us what he wanted, be it pets or dinner. He was extremely friendly to people, and mostly distrusting of other cats. Goldie and Lupin were each other’s shadow, they would snip and snap at each other all day, napping a foot apart. Unexpectedly, he bonded with Iggy as a happy surprise. He had more patience and enjoyed playing with Iggy more than any other cat he’s known. I’m grateful they had a chance to meet. I wish they’d had more time together.
I’m grateful Lupin is no longer in discomfort and not suffering, but I will miss him so much. I know you will too. I’m thankful we had nine terrific, hysterical, never boring years with this beautiful force of nature. I’m so sorry to have such sad news to share, my heart is hurting too. As I told the Boy this morning, “right now Lupin is knocking everything over in Heaven…”
Hug your kitties today. And if a glass rolls off your shelf or a phone suddenly falls to the floor, I like to hope it’s him, free to finally wreak totally havoc in every home that opens its doors to cats. Much love to everyone.
