Mack was originally named Macchiato (we owned a coffeehouse at the time). But the name Mack stuck because he had the loudest purr ever. Like an idling Mack truck, and it would be just him, coming down the hall at bedtime, or thinking about food... purr purr. Then it stopped. I think it might have been when his buddy Pink took a long hiatus. After a couple of months (see story below ), we got him a friend because he was so out of sorts. When Pink came home, things had changed, and he and Mack were never the close buddies again. And Mack didn't purr for more than a decade, even if we were skritching him under the chin. One night a few years ago, we were in bed and heard that old sound coming down the hall... He was still robust then, but I wonder if he was starting to feel discomfort way back then. I know purring isn't only when they're content, but since they don't really communicate all that well, all we could do was ask the vet once in a while. A couple of years ago, the vet detected some spots on his lungs. We knew at 18 or whatever that it wasn't right to put him through a lot of treatment, so we brought him home, but the purring was great. So the last few years, we had an old man cat who'd lose control of his bodily functions once in a while, then win us back with his kitten attitude.

Aw. Pete has a pretty awesome purr that pretty much never stops. The name the rescue gave him was Purrpot.

My condolences, good kitty. We have lost 3 or 4 this year as well, we lose at least that many every year when you deal in volume like we do, you lose track, but we lost our 2 main veterans that have been with us over 15 years both this year so we actually did notice the loss of those guys. :-(

So, to recap: Here is Cat No. 1, Pink (aka Pinker).

Born a barn cat and adopted, along with his sister. His name is Pink because for two weeks, we couldn't get either of them to come out from behind the washer—we could only see their faces, and one had some black on its nose and one's nose was all pink. I liked the name because I'd just watched Reservoir Dogs and once we realized it was the boycat that was all pink, I started calling him Mr. Pink. That stuck until she figured out the reference. We gave the sister cat to the local pet store and immediately, Pink came out from behind the washer and became a nice cat. He's really quite handsome but at age 10 is showing some notches here and there. Momcat had taught him how to live off the land, so he tends to go on adventures once in a while. Prolonged adventures have twice caused us to go to the shelter and get replacement cats. Then the original SOB shows up again! Therefore, here's Cat No. 2, Mack (aka Mackster)

Mack came from the shelter and is the softest fur-bearing mammal known to man. The day after we brought him home, Pink returned from his first adventure. In retrospect, we should have waited more than a week to replace Pink, but we got a nice Sylvester cat out of the deal so I guess it's okay. He's also quite large and I wish I'd coined "the stomach that walks like a cat" because that's really good. He is afraid we're going to eat him up at any moment, and has his moments of friendliness but it usually is only when we're in bed or have just eaten a side of beef and couldn't possibly eat a cat. He was probably a victim of a "brown bagging" as a kitten because he was found alone in an irrigation ditch and turned in to the shelter, and if you rustle a plastic bag around him he takes off like now. After a few years, Pink took off again and we didn't replace him for months. We gave up waiting and were sick of watching Mack mope around from not having his buddy, so off to the shelter we go, and bring home... Cat No. 3, Spalding, (aka Dinger)
Spalding is our last best hope for a normal cat. Oh. Wait. See the earlier post from MyCatHatesYou.com... too late! He's a small cat but he's packing on the pounds trying to keep up with the giant Mack cat. He looks like a short, furry python that just ate a soccer ball... and what a coincidence: he liked to attack feet as they were walking past, so he'd get kicked into next week by sleepy people (he loved to play this game with lights out!) so we called him Spalding. This picture is from the too-short cute phase. He is also a somewhat willing live chew toy for the year-old puppy, Chester. So no one wants to pet him 'cause he's all crusty with Chester spit. Eeew. About 3 months after we got Spalding, Pink came home, thin and grimy. We decided he'd gotten hauled to the county landfill—last seen hauling a trout skeleton out of the dumpster—and that's about 5 miles out of town in a direction he'd never been. Man, I wish I'd had a GPS on him. I bet he had some scary times on that adventure... The trouble with a kitten is that
Eventually it becomes a cat.
