7/1/2005 - 10/15/2019Our friendly little cat, Neo, passed away. He was our Greeter, always greeting us and all visitors at the door when we arrived. At night he would bring us a toy amidst a cacophony of meowing, proudly proclaiming his dominion over the night hours, that all was safe in our house with his protection, and that any intruder would meet the same fate as his ragged little toy as he dragged it and its play stick down the stairs with resounding rattles. He was one of the few cats I've ever seen who actually came when his name was called and he actually seemed to get comfort from our human presence even though he was not big on being held or cuddled. He kept the demeanor that he deemed appropriate for a being of his stature: bold in the face of any dog, no matter the size; comforter by presence, lap sitting or belly kneading, supreme being of house and home. He was much bigger than his tiny 10 pound size would indicate as was discovered by any and all of the canine persuasion who dared darken our doorstep. He will be missed. . . and for the first time in I don't know when our home has no non-human presence.Raleigh, North CarolinaOctober 30, 2019
