May 1, 2005 ~ December 1, 2019
T-Bone passed on unexpectedly but peacefully in the early morning of December 1st, 2019, after bringing more than 14 years of joy to the lives of his family. Welcoming to everyone and all creatures, T-Bone was sometimes known as the gentle giant of his home. He was always there for his family during times of distress or illness, ready to help heal with his big strong purrs and soft nudges. It was nearly impossible to feel pain or sadness with T-Bone lying nearby. T-Bone loved belly rubs, hogging the pillows, and sleeping while wedged in an armpit. His favorite toy was a yellow catnip banana, which he would lick for hours while zoning out. He was demanding at times and would not stand being ignored – he would tap people with his paw until the attention was his. T-Bone left a mark in many lives and will forever be remembered as a magnificent (and stinky) old man.
We will miss and love you always, sweet T.
