Elvis Has Left The Building

Postby BigDogBuford » May 31st, 2007, 10:20 pm

Most likely if you're a close friend of mine, you've met Elvis. Found scrounging around in a Taco Bell dumpster 10 years ago Elvis charmed his way into everybody's hearts that he met. This included people who were allergic to cats and those who weren't 'cat people'.

Always welcoming to new cats and dogs brought into the house, he'd let them know about chow time and show them where the crapper was. He was an equal opportunity cuddler, it didn't matter if you were a cat, a dog or a human with a lap. Famous for his 'sleeper hold' there were many an afternoon whiled away with Elvis napping on our laps.

A tough old cat, he survived being homeless on the mean streets of Lake City, seizures, skin cancer on his ear and a malformed palate. Three years ago Elvis was diagnosed with a brain tumor....they gave him three months to live. They weren't three perfect years but he never stopped purring and dishing out the love.

Last night Elvis stopped purring and we knew it was time. He was spoiled with a shrimp platter and a fillet of halibut and gracefully left our lives to enrichen those in his new life.

Long live the king, Elvis has left the building.

Yes, that's my 30th birthday cake from the Erotic Bakery here in Seattle. He was just checking out the edible, marzipan pen!s.

RIP Elvis. He sounds like he was a totally awesome cat.

And that penis cake picture is so awesomely wrong. Was the cake for him, or just the penis?

I think once you've been a hungry stray you're always willing to check out anything that resembles food. He once stole a dill pickle off my plate and actually ate the whole thing.

RIP Elvis!! Your tribute to him was great!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body; but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
