We’ve been lucky to know and love so many cats, and every single one of them were special in their own right, but none of them were as unique and special as you, Luigi. You’ve been under our feet (and biting them) and in our hearts for 14 years and it seems so painfully short. No matter how much time we would have had with you, it never would have been enough. There is such a void in the house now. You had the biggest of personalities and ruled over this house with a spiky paw. You were truly king of the castle and all of your loyal subjects fell into line. Yet you were so kind and gentle, especially with your buddy Noah. From the day we brought him home you took a keen interest in Noah and soon we could tell how much you adored him. And Noah adored you so much in return. To hear you purr just by being in his presence was such sweet, wonderful music. You’ve been a part of our family from the very beginning, even before we were a family. You were this family’s soulmate. You’ve brought us all so much joy just by being you. By nipping at our bare feet, by squawking at Mom for your wet food, by loving Soleil until you had enough and had to bite her, by cuddling with Wolfie, by stealing Bob as soon as we left the house, by sleeping under the Christmas trees, by attacking Mom while she tried to brush your beautiful fur, by telling goofy Kylo to leave you the heck alone. But most of all, you brought us joy just by always being around us. Wherever we were in the house, you were never too far away. If we were playing on the floor, you would soon show up to supervise, like the master of the domain you were. You would plop yourself down right in the middle of all the present-opening, or whatever else was going on, and you would be so content just to be with us, in the middle of our lives, and us as part of yours. That was your purpose in life, and we are so lucky to have experienced it. We are so glad to have found you, or for you to have found us, however that seemed to work out. We were so blessed and grateful to have you as part of our family and to able to take comfort in petting your long, luxurious fur. To hold you in our arms and feel your hugs as your front paws curled tightly over our shoulders. You’ll always be in our hearts and a part of us, a beautiful boy and a beautiful soul. You are so, so loved.
