Our wonderful black cat “Batman” was found with two siblings, abandoned on a
log in a slough. We quickly found homes for his brother and sister,
but no one wanted a fluffy little black kitten with large ears, a stubby
tail, and huge round yellow eyes. So, Batman joined our family and
quickly stole our hearts. We live on five acres, and Batman was an
in-door/out-door cat. He was a great mouser and had a warrior’s
spirit. When excited, he would wag his stubby tail like a dog and try to
chase all intruders out of his territory. In the house, however,
Batman was everyone’s best friend. He liked to sit on a chair at the
dinner table, slept with us or curled up with his cat-buddies. Last
fall, Batman became ill and was diagnosed with kidney cancer. After
preliminary tests, surgery was performed to remove a kidney with the hope
that the cancer had not spread. Unfortunately, the cancer returned and
we lost our wonderful friend.
