My parents' cat Casey passed away early last week. He managed to live to be 20. That's not so bad for a cat that grew up on the streets and was eventually rescued by Forgotten Felines and Fidos. My parents adopted him when he was just a few years old, and gave him a loving home for the rest of his life.
That's not to say that Casey wasn't a jerk from time to time. Later in life, he took on the "grumpy old man" persona, and would eat pretty much anything he could get his paws on, just because he could. He'd even catch mice. That cat just did not care.
Anyway, here's a video that we shot sometime last year--in which Casey tries to steal food while we are seated at the table:
See you around, cat. Have fun being a dick to Furp.
