October 31st 1993
Ronnoco likes to play bat the ball.
Ronnoco doesn't like it when my other cats seek my attention.
Little yarn puffs which I call puff balls. When Ronnoco was a kitten, he used to play fetch.
Favorite Nap Spot:
On the sofa or on a pet bed in the living room.
Besides cat food, Ronnoco loves chicken and muffins. I always have to share with him.
Ronnoco gives kitty kisses and shakes hands (paws). He also used to play fetch when he was a kitten.
My 14 year old cat , Proffit, passed away during the summer of 1993. In September, I moved to a new home, only to lose my other 14 year old cat, Manilow, shortly before Christmas. Going home to an empty house after a hard day at work was difficult. On December 20th, I stopped at a local pet shop and there I first met Ronnoco. The rest is history.
Ronnoco's birthday is on Halloween! Sometimes, it is hard to tell Ronnoco and his brother Detail apart; but, if you look closely, you will notice that Ronnoco has a few strands of white fur on his chest. He also has a much louder "meow" and a sleeker coat of fur.
As a kitten, Ronnoco used to play fetch. He stopped doing that once Detail arrived. He now plays bat the ball instead. He especially likes it when I throw the ball up the stairs. He runs up and bats it back. Sometimes he even catches the ball. He also knows where I hide the catnip and will meow and walk over to the hiding place to let me know that he wants some.
Shortly after his 17th birthday on Oct. 31,2010, Ronnoco was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. He was taking medication and responding well until March 9, 2011 when he became ill. Despite attempting everything possible, his health continued to fail over the course of three weeks. He passed away peacefully this morning (3/31/11) at the age of 17 years 5 months to the day. I feel so blessed to have been the caretaker of this truly special boy. I hope I brought as much joy into his life as he brought into mine. I will forever treasure my memories of the happy times we shared. To me, he always was and always will be "the bestest kitty in the whole wide world".
