Neko with his half sister Yukia

Neko with his half sister Yukai

Neko was three years old when we brought his half sister Yukai into our family in the year 2000. Neko immediately bounded with her and they were good friends for almost thirteen years. Yukai was with Neko every day for almost thirteen years. We had two additional cats, Honeybear and Ginger, for part of this time. Honeybear died about eight years ago and Ginger died about two years ago. Neko and Yukai had a special friendship and sometimes were a mirror image of each other. They slept tougher,watched birds and squirrels, eating at a dish of birdseed, outside of our sunroom and sat together around our house.. They were always indoor cats as were all of our cats ,except Rusty, who came to my door in 1979. Since Neko died Yukai has been looking for him around our house. This is very sad for me to witness.

When Neko came to our home in 1998 he became the youngest member of the cat pack. Rusty was the leader of the pack and was about twenty years old when Neko joined the pack. Rusty is on the floor,Neko is in the first level of the scratching tree,next to Rusty,Ginger is above Neko and Honeybear is on the top level.Neko was accepted into the pack and ,I think, learned a lot from Rusty.

Neko was a good friend that was tolerant of the silliness of his human friends. These Neko posts were a celebration of his life and a celebration of humans that love animals and of animals that love  humans.Good by old friend.
