Skylar's three-year Bridge Day anniversary
Those years with Skylar grow ever sweeter looking back. He was the mommy's first kitty, and adopted her before she officially adopted him. He was almost five years old at the time of his adoption, fully his adult self, but still willing to start his life over with Mommy and Daddy, his littermate, and two small kittens (Tabby and Carbon). Between that day and the end of his life, he was honorary uncle to many foster kittens, enjoying every minute of playing tails with them and teaching them how to play. Mommy was his person, but he adopted Mommy Erin as his second person, then Daddy as his third person and (then baby) JJ as his fourth person. He loved to terrorize his sister Lydia, but she loved putting up with it. It was a game between the two of them.
Even at the end, old and crochety as he was, he would come over for a snuggle and a proffered lap to sleep in. He loved being held like a baby. He never lost his wonderful Siamese yowl, especially when it came to food, and was the official timekeeper of the household.
We love and miss you every day, Skylar. Thank you for sharing our lives and letting us into yours!
