I'd like to tell everycat a little bit about my best friend, Louis LeBeau. You can find photos of him in my friends section. You can't miss him...he's the handsome ginger fellow with the round face and smiling green eyes. He's so stylish! I am always jealous of his beautiful outfits. And he really seems to enjoy dressing up in them!
When I was just a little tiny kitten, I met Louis here on Catster for the first time. I was so green -- about everything! I didn't know much about anything at all, but whenever I would encounter something new in this big world -- like a strange kind of bug or a cat I'd never met before or weather that seemed unworldly to me, or even some of the things my human bean would do (who can ever figure THEM out?) I knew I could always drop a line to Louis and he would explain to me all the things I didn't understand.
As I grew a little older, and wiser, our friendship grew too. Instead of a mentor and a "father figure" in my life, he became a buddy who could share a joke or just chat for a while. More than any other cat outside my own family (and more than some of them, let me tell you!) I love Louis LeBeau! Ethan is nice too of course, and now there's the new kid, Kirby, who's been very polite as well, but Louis is just the best cat EVER. He's so wise and endlessly patient and I'm so very proud to call him my friend.
Louis hasn't been well lately. He's had something called cancer. I'm not sure what that is, but when my mom talks about it she looks really worried, so I don't think it's good. I'd ask Louis, but I wouldn't want to upset him when he's not feeling his best. He's just got to get better, that's all. I want everycat out there to be purring for my friend, because although I take a whole lot of comfort in thinking that someday when my turn comes to go to the Rainbow Bridge, Louis might be there to show me the ropes and introduce me around, it's not time for him to go there yet!
Louis, if you're reading this, I love you and I think about you all the time! I sit in a patch of sunlight on a windowsill, and I fold my paws up under my chest and I close my eyes and I think of you and I purr and purr and purr that you will be all better soon!
