We had to have our cat put down today..... Grasshopper had been with me since 2000 and lived in 4 different cities with me. He was a strange cat and I only got him by accident when he took a shine to another cat of mine called Martini who was having troubles and spending sometime back at the pet shop where we got him from. They came home together and formed a strong bond which lasted until Martini disappeared one day a few years ago. Grasshopper would never let you pick him up, and really for most of his time with me never gave a lot back for what he got. However, I would not trade a single day with him in my life. Goodbye Grasshopper, rest in peace good friend.
