Alexander the Great Davidson was born in a litter of seven from my daughter's kitty, Christina. He was with us for all seven years of his life, and provided us with constant smiles and endless love.

A one-time owner of 11 cats, I'm now down to just one -- my 21-year-old deaf kitty, Scarlett (or Mean Scar, as she's sometimes affectionately called around here).

Alex made friends easily, and seemingly had no fears at all. He was little and scrawny until he was two years old, at which time he rapidly beefed up into quite a big bruiser. He loved to play with his brother, Billy Jack, and they were unseparable until Billy's mysterious disappearance two years ago.

Our funny Alexander would sleep in my bed with one paw draped around me and softly purr in my ear until he fell asleep. Mealtime was a huge event to him, and he particularly enjoyed chunky tuna or turkey. He had a very quiet voice, more like a bird chirp, and made friends easily. He was a very handsome black and white tuxedo cat with a beautiful coat, and people were drawn to him -- even folks who claim not to like kitties.

He was also a mighty hunter, and would proudly present his trophies to us by laying them at the front door. Of course, this caused his human servants a lot of grief -- but it made him happy to share his prizes.

Alex tragically lost his life in a freak accident about a month ago. He lunged head first at a rapid pace into our sliding glass balcony door. I cannot tell you the sense of loss and tears that have followed since. We miss him so much!

Just felt that there should be some sort of tribute to him. Thank you so much for reading this memorial to a one-of-a-kind personality-plus very special cat.

It is so very hard to lose one of our babies. It never gets any easier. I too have had 11 cats before and am now down to 7 and do not plan on having more....of course I do think that I must have a neon sign on the roof that proclaims "all strays welcome", of the 7, only two were come by normally, the rest are strays. I am sorry about Alex... I know how you must miss him. It never gets any easier.

Thank you, Marsha. I haven't been able to sleep much since my little buddy's been gone -- sure do miss that protective paw around me!

Cats must have remarkably good taste when it comes to picking humans -- or at least a keen sense of who will serve them well. Some of the most treasured kitties I've had the pleasure of cohabitating with adopted me. They must be able to intuit a feline afficianado at first glance. Sounds like you've been blessed many times over!

I had tears running down my face when I first heard of Alex's demise.....I know the pain of losing a much-beloved kittycat too well.

I hope you are feeling better now Susan, and maybe one day your heart will be captivated by another furry-purry.

When I was recently in Alaska, friend Crystal brought home a bedraggled li'l cat she'd found living in a pipe out in the snow.

She appeared to be a mix of Manx and torti-point Siamese. She has the most beguiling blue eyes, and a totally sweet disposition.....just begging to be cuddled all the time, and purring like a sawmill. We have been wondering if she could be a Ragdoll..??

We got her cleaned up and fed, and to the vet for a check-up. She stands less'n a foot high, and possibly a foot long.......very small for a cat estimated to be between 1 and 2 years old.

Because of her creamy thick coat and soft autumn tones, we called her "Cappuccino".....or "Chino". Till then, I just called her "Itty-Bitty-Pretty-Kitty".
I have seldom met one so instantly-delightful, and would have taken her in a heartbeat, if not for having to return to Australia.

Yup, I DID get pix of her though!!

I hope she will be OK, and wonder how on earth she came to be out there anyway?

Sorry to read about your friend Alex. Such a shock for you, I'm sure. Best wishes to you and Mean Scar!

Thank you so much for your kind words, Bev and Ron!

Bev, you were such a comfort to me during the first few days. You'll never know how very much I appreciate it -- and YOU!
