On January 26, 2012 a gorgeous 12-year-old (give or take, we've never been completely sure of the details and subsequent veterinary examinations have been inconclusive) hunk of black man cat moved in with us at Teeny Tiny Tabby Town.
Many of you have been with us as fans of Norman since that day. We weren't blogging then, but at the time he was discussed frequently in the comment section over at Love & Hisses. You've been with us through the thrill of adoption, the comedy of errors, the reign of Uncle Norman, and the devastating illness that brought us to our knees.
This morning, we said our final goodbyes to our dear sweet gentle old man. I hope you'll understand and be patient for details as, for the moment, this is really all I can handle writing. I'll be back with more of an explanation and homage over the weekend as my heart can manage it.
Thank you for loving him along with us.
