Baxter

100_3443 Baxter was born in a barn here in Idaho. He came to be our pet when my son and granddaughter gave him to me. And they kept his sister Coconut. He was so tiny and very sweet. Ready to be loved and love. He liked outside more than inside, and the sofa. He would not use a litter box, he wanted out. Over the years he had many fights, he was never very big, but I think he thought that he was.

Arney found Baxter in his bed, he had died in his sleep. Sleep well dear friend, you were a little rebel. Soft and sweet, you never really belonged to us, you liked your freedom.If there is a heaven for you Baxter, I hope there is a barn for you to stand on the roof- top, a field to run in just like home.

What a beautiful KAT! He had a lot of spunk it seems. I know he will be dearly missed by you and your family.. Hugs from me and Henry V. We liked reading his life story.

Oh Mary, I'm so sorry to hear this news. I know how hard it is to say goodby to a beloved animal companion, as I've had to do that a few times in the past. What a gift we are given when we have these wonderful creatures in our lives.
