He had the biggest ears and the loudest cry when it came time to adopt him seventeen years ago. From that day on, every day with our tabby, Izzy, became an adventure. For years, he was content to bask in the sun from either his window seat or the carpet of his mama’s studio apartment. Together, life was comfortable and he was king of his world. Alas, the time came when his mama brought home ‘the others’, his sisters Samantha and Lucy and life, as he knew it was more. However, Izzy adjusted and soon became the leader of this feline trio. A few years passed and Izzy discovered that he would be sharing a home with a new kind of breed – a dog named Ray. However, just as his feline sisters had learned to accommodate Izzy’s every wish, so did the dog. And if not, then he would always be clobbered on the head as he passed by Izzy perched on the sofa. The years passed and Izzy continued to rule the roost by dishing out ‘love bites’ to the necks of his sisters and to the hands of his humans. He would welcome all strangers to his home by jumping on the back of the sofa or the table to sniff them and make sure they were suitable to stay in his humble adobe. He liked to think he ‘chose’ his mama’s husband, who later became his papa by performing the ‘sniff test’ on their first date – he passed. As Izzy matured his life followed suit. Many a sunny afternoon he’d lay sleeping for hours on end on the front porch, the breeze ruffling his fur ever so slightly. In the evenings he lay contently on ‘his dedicated cushion’ during TV time with mama on one side and papa on the other. If one of us got up to get a snack from the kitchen, he followed closely on our heels to make sure he was getting his share as well. Izzy we miss you and we love you always.
