Rammy in November 2009
Rammy (Ramses) was a beautiful and intelligent longhaired tabby. He adopted me in 1995 by coming into my house and stayed for 15 years. He always came onto my lap or bed if I was feeling low. He was a very gentle cat although he caught rats when needed!
He was my constant companion and best friend for many years. Latterly he had become slower, his hearing was failing and his coat was less glossy, but his huge amber eyes were as beautiful as ever. On April 28, 2010 he went out through the cat flap after supper and never returned... I think he knew it was time and just wandered off to die.
