I will miss his pretty face and sweet personality. I'll miss the funny way he shook his paws and made a disgusted face whenever they got wet. I'll miss his "jumping noise" - a little bbbbrrrrrmmmmp sound he made whenever he got up on the couch or the bed, like he had to kick into low gear to make the leap. I'll miss watching him loll in the sun by the doorwall in summer, and run to sit on the register whenever the heat kicked on in the winter. I'll miss what a good friend he was to me for 16+ years. Goodbye, Scuffy - I'm so lonesome for you.
UPDATE 11-19-2007: This post, and some of the comments, at Laurence Simon's made me think of something else I'll miss - Whenever I whistled "Give Me The Simple Life," Felix would come and sit on my lap. He liked all whistling (good thing, as I come from a family of non-stop whistlers), but that one was his favorite. He did indeed like the simple life (something we had in common). And thanks to The Rangers for the kind words and prayers - It means a lot coming from fellow kitty lovers. Also, my sweet sister talks of Felix here.

Some like the high road, I like the low road,
