Farewell, Gato

I'm very sad to say that Gato passed away tonight. For those who may not know, he was originally my cat, but he basically became my mom and uncle's cat after I moved out, moved back in, moved out, moved back in, etc. He lived a very full life in his 13 years, eating better food than some people get to eat (shrimp for one thing!), smelling flowers (he loved flowers), eating bugs, sneaking out now and then to scrap with the neighbor cats, and giving all of us a little bit of that badass attitude every chance he got. There will never be another like him, and heaven doesn't know what it's in for now that he's a resident. We'll miss you Gato, a.k.a. Douglas, a.k.a. Cookie Son, a.k.a. fill in your own blank because everybody had their own name for this kid! RIP my little Oreo! <3
