He was my leggity beast.
My sweet singer.
My wild man.
My yella green eyed monster.
He was named Clive Warren, because Carl Pilkington is awesome. And it seemed to fit.
He was a bengal (my dingle bengal) and he was big and tall and sweet and loyal in dog like ways.
He loved me so much everybody teased us about our relationship.
We didn't care because we had better things to do, like lay on the couch or drink from the sink, or, try to steal garbage to eat.
And sing to eachother.
We were always singing.
"Prow-oh-wow" he'd trill, and I'd say it back as well as humanly possible.
Silence now. And sadness. And the other three cats (two anyway, third is unperturbed because she's an insensitive cat) running through the house looking confused. Wondering where their play and snuggle mate went. He went so fast. Probably that's good for him. Not for me maybe, but for him almost certainly. Just wanted to write something in tribute to a little life that went out, and although the wide world is unaffected, I feel that winking out deeply. He was a good friend to me, and an ambassador of our household. He was unbelievably sweet and patient with the other kitties. We will all (except for that one heartless b, who's still sleeping peacefully btw) miss him and all the music he made.

(((thisissogross))) I'm so sorry to hear of Clive Warren's passing. He sounds like he was an awesome little tiger.

The world may have lost a bright light but you have a little angel to watch over you and the other kitties. (Yes, even that "one heartless b")

The memories live on. We are grateful for that!
Peace to your sweet kitty and you!

Lord, with Your help I will focus on each small step of the climb, instead of the mountain that stands before me.
