Finally, a Baltimore oriole!

I took this picture yesterday:



I was so excited! He was just as brilliant as the photos I've seen. I've wanted to see one for a very long time

My cat Xavier

Xavier was the runt of 7 black kittens born on Friday 13th. He was 18 years old. He had a stroke and we had to put him to sleep yesterday. I wanted to share a few pictures of my sweet baby boy.

We started out with three cats. Xavier is on the bottom stair and his brother, Duma, is on the top. Duma died 2 years ago from cancer. He was 13.




This is Maggie, our last surviving cat, snuggling with Xavier.




This is me holding Xavier. He was a very affectionate cat and loved to be held






This is my husband, (DUer AllenVanAllen) holding Xavier.



Xavier was almost deaf. Last week, someone posted a video of a cat purring (I forgot who it was, but thank you!) I put the speaker next to him and he reached out to touch it. He could hear it a little bit:




This is Maggie. She's 14. She's a very sweet and loving kitty. She misses her big brothers:




I'm very thankful that Xavier was healthy for over 18 years and his suffering was short. Right now, it's hard to stop crying. My heart is just broken. I miss my sweet boy.
