Mister Shivers
5/4/2004 - 10/12/2020On the morning of Monday, October Twelfth, 2020, this very special little sir passed softly into the void. Mister Shivers was the most handsome cat I've ever known, as well as a completely unique soul, and a true friend. His majesty was so striking that people often stopped in their tracks the moment they walked into a room and saw him, just to stare in shock at what a beautiful animal he was. But his beauty was more than just surface level. He was a kindred spirit to me. He frequently seemed to suffer from the same anxiety and depression that I did, and this allowed us to have an understanding; a bond, where we were there for each other and provided support for one another. Any time either of us were sad or upset, he would hop up beside me and just flop over against me, then as we both closed our eyes listening to him purr, we would both feel a little better. He could be cranky and grumpy sometimes, he hated all other cats, and sometimes he decided to passive-aggressively pee on things... but I wouldn't have traded it for anything, because his friendship was worth it. His enthusiasm for snacks, snuggles, and rolling around on paper or cardboard helped to remind me to enjoy the simple things in life, and I will forever remember what a good friend he was. I am so glad to have had the opportunity to know him and will always be thankful that I had the opportunity to spend fifteen years spoiling him.Brett SaltzerLawrenceville, GeorgiaOctober 15, 2020
