We Still Miss You, Moe!

We got Moe from the Parma Animal Shelter June of 2000 at approximately 8 years old. He was a great cat as you can see from these pictures.


Moe and Gerard liked reading together!

Ain't I cute?




A rare occasion, Moe on Karen's lap.

Moe playing with the feather on the string in his younger days.

Moe was a nice, soft pillow. He didn't usually mind me resting my head on him.

I never saw another cat with exactly his markings. Some were close,
but none had the black on the nose like Moe did.

Moe liked to lay on the newspaper right under Gerard's nose!

Here's a good shot of Moe, he was such a nice cat!

Here's Moe lying under our bedroom dresser.

Here's Moe being a bit playful, hiding under Buddy Bear.
Moe lived to be 15 1/2. He survived fatty liver disease which he had when we first got him and later developed a thyroid problem. I had methomizole (I called it ear goop) that I had to put on his ears alternately every night. We both still miss Moe. He died during the night of New Year's Eve 2008 and is buried in our back yard. We use his picture as our screen saver on our computer from time to time.

Moe was a very good cat. He never got into any mischief at all but didn't much like to be held and was not a lap cat. We missed him and Spunky seemed to be a bit lonely without him so in May, when a friend of mine had to get rid of her cat, we decided to take it. That was Manny who is a great mancat and although the beginning was rough, he is now our "Mr. Nice Nice."

It's hard to loose a pet but I'd say that Moe was lucky. He had someone to love and care for him.

Moe sure sounds like he was a special cat, and how wonderful that you adopted him when he was 8 years old. Not too many "older" cats get another chance like that.

You adjust but you never really get over the loss do you. Just remember that he is out of pain and in a better place now. Sounds like Moe was a sweet cat.

Awww! He posed so pretty for that picture. He could have modeled, like Daisy. He was a very pretty cat and I loved the pics. I hate that I'm allergic to cats..it's so nice of them to use us a thrones. We took in so many cats at one point that I wondered who ran the place. Oh well, they have those faces that say, "keep me." And I sneezed and sneezed and sneezed..

What a beautiful tribute to Moe. Our babies are indeed very precious.

Have a terrific day and a very Happy New Year. :)

Moe sounds like he was a wonderful kitty. It's so hard to lose our furbabies but it's nice to remember the good memories they give us. What a special tribute to him.

What a beautiful boy. I can tell from the photos what a special part he played in your lives. That was a beautiful shared memory for us.
