Normally, my blog is centered around crafting, kids crafts, sharing Gypsy files etc.  Today, I just have a share.

My cat died last night.  He was getting very old and it was not a surprise but it really hit me hard.

His name was "Gomez", Gomie for short.  He got that name thanks to his facial markings.  He had a mustash, goatee, a part on top of his head and one side burn.  We named him after Gomez Addams from the "Addams Family."  He had the best kitty attitude I've ever seen!! 

I loved him so much, I had him since I was 16 years old (over half my life). 
He was almost 17 years old.

Gomie, we love you and you will be missed!

My deepest sympathy to you for your loss. I, too, have a beloved cat. Her name is Sweetie and she is approximately 15 years old now (she was a rescue). I cannot imagine my life without her.

Oh Cheryl, I am so sorry. I understand completely my self. Four years ago my cat, Bobby died at the ripe old age of 19. It is so hard to say goodbye to our smallest family members. I am just glad you have such great pictures and warm memories of sweet Gomez.
I am so glad you shared the pics. He was adorable with such great markings.
