Casper was with us for 13 years.....13 years of smiles and laughter cause he had the most incredible personality and a very lo-o-ong tail! We could rarely set any food (especially dip) on our coffee table cause his tail always found its way into the middle of it. He was also the biggest klutz I had ever seen....never being able to round a corner at a run without sliding around it on his side. When it came to catching mice (our old store had plenty) he had the patience of a monk and the speed of a cheetah on steroids! Dan and I were often greeted with gifts in the morning, little dead furry ones. Needless to say the mouse population around here came to a halt while he was alive. One of the most emotional moments in our life with Casper is when we re-located to Virginia and he made the trip, in a rather large carrier, with us. Both Dan and I remember the look on his face when we opened the door to the carrier and he entered his new home. He looked at us with a look of pure love and delight as if he were saying "you brought me with you"!
We NEVER took one moment with this cat for granted because he showed us a new world through his eyes and actions. I miss you my enchanted love and wish so much you could have stayed with me forever! You were the teacher and I the student in our relationship and I am forever grateful of our time together!
