January 18th 1991
Moet et Chandon, caviar, haute couture and his daddy.
Anything that might muss up his perfect presentation, such as being picked up or being held if it's not his idea.
Make-up and grooming products.
Favorite Nap Spot:
He slept on the back of the sofa during the day and beside my head every night.
Any kind of pastry, bread, cookie or cracker, in particular, graham crackers .
Well versed in etiquette, extraordinarily nice...oh, and a World Champion Hairball Hurler!! (he's very sensitive).
Isaac was adopted from a local shelter....I had an all white cat, so of course I "needed" an all black one, right? Soon after coming home, it became apparent that he had ringworm, AND gave it to his brother Dexter...gross! So, they both had to be shaved and looked like pipe-cleaners for a couple months (see picture in his photo album!). Isaac was horrified to be naked!
In his purr-sonality and traits, Isaac was always over-the-top flamboyant. He loved to have his picture taken and loved to "play dress-up." He literally purred and "talked" if you dressed him and took pictures of him!! He was ALL that honey...absolutely 10's across the board!
Isaac was a very different cat. As you can see above, he didn't like the cusine that "regular" cats like and prefered instead, pastries and sweets. For the very brief period of his life when he was permitted to go outdoors, he refused to go potty outside. Instead he would show up at the door wailing like he was dying (there was a 'lil Siamese in his vocal cords) and as soon as you opened the door to see what the fuss was about, he'd make a bee-line for the litter box to relieve himself. Also, Isaac never brought me things that "regular" cats bring their humans, such as mice, moles and chipmunks. Instead, Isaac would bring me spectacularly beautiful dragonflies and butterflies...always still very much alive. He seemed to not want to harm them. When the catch de jour was a butterfly, the powder from the poor creature's frantically beating wings would dust Isaacs face...his makeup I presume, because as I am sure you will at this point agree, I am fully convinced that Isaac was a drag queen in a former life. RuPaul, DO step aside honey!!
How do I look??

The arrival of Tina and Pedro rocked poor Isaac's world. Isaac lived 15 years with his brother Dexter who crossed the rainbow bridge in October of 2005. I had to fill that gaping hole in my heart that Dexter's passing had created. It took two kittens to do it and I was thrilled. Isaac on the other paw, was not amused. We endured months of hissy-spitty. Eventually, however, Tina won him over, as she wins everyone else over...with her beautiful angelic spirit. She played with the senior citizen cautiously and gently until he folded. Tina was eventually even permitted the "honor" of grooming the royal forehead!
In March of 2006 Isaac was diagnosed with CRF. I always thought that this would be what would "get" him in the end. Imagine my surprise when on 2/13/08 he was diagnosed with bladder cancer. He stayed with us longer than the 30 days the vet had predicted, but nonetheless lost his battle with cancer on 5/5/08. Many, many thanks go out to every kitty family who reached out to us with loving support. I know for a fact that some of the most amazing folks on the planet inhabit Catster.

Ez bitta sveet...Isaac happy to greet deze precious angels und see dem whole und happy again, but ez so sad dat dey have to leave dey staff und leave such painful holes en de hearts of dey staff. Ah but den again, dat mean ve are vell loved kitties, jes? Every kitty should be so fortunate to have such devoted staff.

Love, feathery boa hugs und kee-sees galore,
