Favorite Nap Spot: Wherever he chooses, even if it means moving another cat.

Skills: Melting Meowmy's heart with a meow.
Arrival Story: Hooch was the second cat to join our family. He arrived about a year after his sister, Kujo. He had originally been adopted from the pound by our daughter's co-worker who was living in an apartment. This co-worker had Hooch about 2-3 weeks when the apartment complex found out about him. The co-worker was given a choice of a huge pet fee or getting rid of Hooch. She chose the latter and offered Hooch to our daughter. We went to visit him and fell in love with this charming feline. Needless to say, we brought him home with us that very day.
Bio: Hooch has appointed himself to be the "enforcer" in the group. If any cat gets into a difference of opinion with another cat in the family, Hooch takes it upon himself to settle the matter. Hooch is the Alpha cat - or he tries to be.
Six months ago on March 11th at 6:36PM EST, I lost you to cancer. You had been so brave throughout your multiple health issues and remained so strong through each issue for 4 years. You never let these things get you down for long but you did face so many health issues... always with your precious and sweet spirit and dignity and LOVE. You always gave your all.
My heart was broken into pieces that fateful day. I am slowly mending those shattered pieces. I am so thankful to have shared my life with such a special orange and white boy who taught me much.
Not a day goes by that I don't find myself looking for you at the kitchen door or listening for your voice when you wanted in the room with me or out to be by yourself.
You left the most special and amazing paw prints in my heart forever. You blessed our home with your gentle love.
I miss you being here to break up the disagreements of your siblings. You never, ever started a fight but I have seen you stop quite a few of them.
Thank you for touching my life with your love. I will see you again one day. What a reunion that will be. You take care of Clawdia, Kujo, Prince, McDuff and all our humans who have also been called away from their earthly home.
You are 15 years old today. I had hoped to be celebrating it with you, precious boy. It was not meant to be. I am still unable to really put in words my feelings and tell about your unexpected departure for the Bridge in March of this year. I was blessed to have you for 14 beautiful years and I miss you more than words can ever express. You made my days beautiful. Not a hour of the day goes by that you aren't in my mind and heart and I still can't talk about you without crying nor can I write my feelings. Know you were special. Everyone who ever met you, especially your health care givers, loved you. You were known as a gentle, easy going boy. You touched so many people with your fight for life. You gave it your all and you took whatever came your way with more dignity than can ever be told.
I miss you so much. You live in Meowmy's heart and I am blessed by knowing you.
Happy 15th Birthday my precious boy.
Thank you to Anna and family for the lovely ball, Angel Rebby for the ice cream cone, Milo and family for the watermelon, Angel Jasper for the lemon drink, Platelicker and family for the fun ball, Angel Calvin and family for the ice cream cone, Angel Big Harry and family for the sweet heart, Morticia and family for the cupcake and Angel Sonny and sisters for the cupcake. The birthday wishes with each giftie were so appreciated. Thank you to all who remembered my special angel on his 15th birthday.
Meowmy wanted me to let you know that she still just can't face helping me with my diary nor writing about my life. She promised me very soon that she will help me. I just wanted to thank each of you for the outpouring of love, kind words and the special gifties on my page. Thanks to all my furiends who made special pictures for me and to Auntie Patricia for my moving wings pictures.
A week ago, at 6:36PM, I made my journey to the Bridge after my long fight with illnesses. My specialist said that ironically, what I had so bravely battled for 4 years was not what finally took me away from my earthly life.
Just give Meowmy a little more time to help me and to write her own words.
I love all of you and thank you for all the loving support and constant prayers and purrs.
