Voice from Beyond
Hello friends, Tortie here. I would like to thank you all for the purrs, prayers, hugs and love expressed. I am comforted and truly blessed to have so many friends all over the world.
In my nine and a half years, I only allowed EJ to carry me with the exception, of course, my doctors during check-ups. If relatives and friends requested, I would allow EJ to place me on their laps or arms for a limited time only. The reason was EJ cared and carried me since I was born. I was not born exactly healthy; click here if you want to know.
EJ was amused on how I relaxed and said I was a cat version of Jabba the Hutt, an alien character of the famed Star Wars.
Due to my condition at birth, my hind legs looked a bit atrophied. And I liked sticking my arm out in anticipation to touch when EJ walked past.
I was truly relaxed in sleep.
I love squeezing in small places which never failed to make EJ uncomfortable.
Whenever I slept on the catwalk, I held on to the railing so I would not fall off in mid-sleep like some of my roommates.
EJ used to laugh when I made sexy poses like these.
These shades showed I was cool.
I looked dashing.
EJ used to say my eyes were the most expressive ever on my handsome face.
Now EJ can sleep a little longer in the mornings as I would not be making morning calls anymore. Hope EJ will not miss it too much.
Got to go, 4Head's waiting. Have great, loving days ahead. Purrrrrs!
