Cattywampas
9/1/2000 - 9/26/2020There are so many things to be said about Cattywampas -- he had a huge personality and 20 years of worldly life to bless us with his charms. He loved the outdoors and had been abandoned outside for several months before we adopted him, and so was fearless and bold. Although he was scrappy, he was a fighter and we were at the vet quite often for first aid in his younger years. As soon as he got home he would be scratching at the door to go back out, whether it was with stitches or staples in his head (just the once)! Such an ornery cat in the outdoors would run inside and jump on the closest lap to cuddle and get his chin scratched. His best buddy was our large dog Harley (2001-2015) and they loved to hang out on the deck or in the back yard together. When we moved onboard our sailboat and sailed from New England to Florida, they stuck together in the cockpit and walked around the deck – best buds. Catty’s little LED light on his harness let us know he was still onboard at night. Catty settled into his favorite spot - the chair at the navigation desk - and declared himself Admiral! We were able to visit so many places and see so many sunsets together! We will never forget Captain Catty’s cocktail hours where he would sit with us and entertain, and usually take over our cushions!

It is so hard to be without you now Cattywampas, as you were a huge part of our lives on a daily basis, whether having breakfast with Daddy, lunch with Mommy, and dinner scratching at our legs for table scraps. Of course you would always get some! We couldn’t make a sandwich without you on our feet. Your meows were non-stop (a little annoying in the middle of the night until we got your meds right!). You always had something to say, wanted to be a part of every conversation and every hug, whether you were sitting on Daddy’s chest on the couch or putting your arm around Mommy’s arm for our bird watching hugs from the window. We miss you so much words cannot even describe! We know you are playing with Harley again. We think of you both always and know some day we will get to see you again, our soul mates, our “wolf pack,” as you both were so loyal and loving and knew we would all protect each other and stick together forever. You are always in our hearts and on our minds and will be so missed and loved forever.

Cattywampas was clearly such a special guy! He was so lucky to have become a part of your family. The love you all shared was palpable. Rest in peace precious boy.Elizabeth Merchant - December 5, 2020
Cattywampas will always be remembered as a beautiful kitty who loved to be held and patted. He was so smart and sociable. He truly loved to sit on my lap when I would take care of him when Lauren and Drew traveled. When I visited at their new home in Florida, he was constantly wanting attention and love which he most certainly received. Catty was almost human. He understood everything I would say to him, and I could see it in his most beautiful eyes. We had great conversations! There are so many wonderful memories and adorable pictures that I have of Catty which remind me daily of the love and happiness he brought to our lives. He now joins his beloved Harley, another beautiful pet in our family. I will always remember you, Cattywampas, and what a rascal you were who brought us so much love for many years. Love you and miss you so much!
