Last week my kitty got sick quite suddenly and passed away, so it’s been a pretty rough time for our family. Even if you guys didn’t know it, Jolee was instrumental to my blog because he always curled up next to me to keep me company when I was writing or reading.
We named him Jolee because he was a mix of black and white, therefore grey, and therefore reminded us of the grey Jedi Jolee Bindo from Knights of the Old Republic.
He turned out to be a grouchy busybody, just like the KOTOR character. 😀 He really liked to cause trouble and once jumped into the Christmas tree. (He never tried it again. It was a very wet, prickly tree.)
Yet he was so patient with our one-year-old son, and he always slept with me when my husband was on business trips. He kept me company for hours upon hours as I played video games, worked on my novels during NaNoWriMo, blogged, read, or napped. He had the softest, silkiest fur ever.
Jolee was with our family for nearly six years. It wasn’t nearly enough. We miss him every day, even just when we walk in the door and he’s not there to greet us.
Thank you for adopting us as your family, Jolee. We love you always.
