Our Beloved Pumpkin

Our beloved Pumpkin crossed the Rainbow Bridge today at approximately 1:02 pm. She was 1 month shy of turning 19 yrs old. Her brother Samson proceeded her crossing  in 1997 and she is survived by her mother, our dear Calico who is 20 yrs old . All of our cats are indoor cats and quite pampered. 
 Unlike her mother and brother, Pumpkin was not as social and balked at an early age to being held and petted (known to nip a hand after a few pet strokes). She learned from her mother to earn her keep and was an excellent mouser. She never accepted Mr. Bettis's arrival which led to quite a few cat/dog skirmishes (*sigh*). Admittedly Mr. Bettis was a bit overzealous in trying to win her over.
We will miss her winding around our legs and her very loud meow. We love you "Pummy" and we'll never forget you. Run Free Pummy, Run Free!

I am so sorry for your loss. She reminds me of Tigger, the first cat of my childhood.
