      The 4th is fantastic. He is a clever renaissance knight in the court of Queen Elizabeth I.

      I'm saddened for your loss, seems like a great pet, self-feeding, toilet trained, a guardian, and protector, GREAT SHOTS, he however does have "The Look". Thank you for the story. cd

      Sweet tribute to a wonderful cat..love all the photos you had fun with..we had a cat that loved to go walking in the woods with the dog and me..she was so sweet, maybe I'll do a tribute to her! Good idea.

      First I thought "what a scary looking cat", but after I read your story I understood No-No was very clever and cute. Great post.

      Its kind of weird I just posted a picture of my recently deceased "Kitty" with almost the same title.

      Awww, that was sweet Betsy. It is sad when we lose our pets, they are like family to us. And each one has their own personality that makes them unique. You seem to have had just that experince yourself.

      Yes, that really was his name.
      His original name was Sammy, but one day after I wrestled him from
      the interior of our fridge for the 10th time that day and after 3 of us fought him to retrieve the chicken leg he had stolen, I screamed out in frustration, "I'm renaming this cat...I'm always screaming "NO-NO!
      BAD KITTY" so that's what I'm going to call him.!" He never knew that it wasn't a compliment. No-No grew up to be a wonderful pet and friend. Thank goodnes!

      No-No was very much loved and we miss him terribly. I know that he looks evil in some of these images, but in reality, he was very friendly and so funny.
      Some of my favorite memories of No-No include how he trained himself to use the toilet. And he let you know that it irritated him when anyone else had the need to use the facility. He also loved to go for walks with the dog. Neighbors would come out to see this cat walking along on our morning walks.
      No-No would wait in the middle of the driveway for my teenage daughter to come home. And on Halloween he parked himself
      next to a pumpkin to greet the trick or treaters! Oh, he also liked burritos!
      He passed away 2 years ago.
      Here's to you NO-NO, we'll never forget you.
