Flame Point

He liked to play in the sprinkler and he loved Christmas. He would lay under the tree the minute it was up, and when he was younger we couldn't put tinsel on the tree because he would eat it!

He didn't like to be disturbed from his naps.

Favorite Toy:
Wasn't much for toys.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Any lap that appeared empty.

Favorite Food:
TUNA! But he got Iams for seniors.

He could open the screen doors by butting them with his head so he could run out.

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
Our blue point had passed away tragically, and we just needed another kitty to fill the void. I went to the local pet store, which was run by a veterinarian and the animals were NOT from mills. They had a litter of 4 mixed siamese, 2 flames and 2 mixed blue. I chose Herman because he was the most affectionate.

He got his name because when I was bringing him home, I had "Oldies' on the radio and a Herman's Hermits song came on. I thought it was a good name. One particular Christmas, I had just put up the tree and put the skirt around it and left it for the night. The next morning, he had managed to catch a mouse over night and had placed it under the tree! He was a sweet boy for almost 13 years. We woke up one morning in March 3 years ago and couldn't find him! He was indoors, as we make sure our kitties are always in for the night. We looked and found him under the bed, never a good sign. When his daddy coaxed him out, he was disoriented and staggering, but got his balance and wanted to go outdoors. We knew if we let him go out, he'd go off somewhere and hide because he was obviously sick. There was no warning, he had not been acting the least bit sick. We took him to the vet right away, and they did x-rays and then an ultrasound and discovered a large tumor in his abdomen. The vet said they could not really tell what organs it might encompass, but would not give much hope that it could be removed. We could not put him through a surgery with less than a good chance to save him, so the decision was made to send him to the Bridge. My college aged daughter who no longer lived at home was able to come to the vet's office to tell him goodbye, and I stayed with him and hugged him and petted him as they released him from his pain. He was a wonderful companion and friend.

Forums Motto:
I was daddy's first love.
