This is my cat Clyve. I rescued him almost twelve years ago. Back then he was feral, dirty and anti-social. For better or worse, he lost his natural instincts with me and became the dog of cats. He had all the bad kittie ailments and then some. He liked to scratch and bite, especially me. He also ate furniture. I loved him so much and he was such great company for all of those years. Below is the stream of facebook condolences that appeared earlier this week.
