We brought him home so he could be around family. This picture is while he was napping. We also stopped by a park on the way home, because he loved grass, sun, and fresh air.
In his youth, Choco made it his job to show up other cats in pride and majesty. Even as a small kitten, you caught him at a weak moment if you got him to react to a toy. His favorite things were food, pets, comfort, and judging lesser cats. He regarded his siblings as unimportant housemates. What he really loved were his favorite people. He would light up when family came to visit, or go straight for you without breaking eye contact if he was in the mood for attention (he'd plow right through other cats or obstacles on the floor). He had a lot of health problems in his last two years, but he never complained (except about being taken to the vet) or showed his pain, and faced all of it bravely. His body finally gave in today, but I know his spirit never did.
Choco was with me since I was 12, he came with me through many cities, even a couple countries, and was there through my teens, through my marriage, through good times and bad. He looked at me one last time before it started, and went quickly. I hope he knew he was home and we were with him.
If you want to do anything for me, take a moment to think about Choco. You may not have known it, but you shared 19 years on this earth with him. He was the best companion I could have asked for through 2/3 of my life. It would make me happy to know that as many people as possible got to know he existed.
May you rest well, Choco. I will love you always and miss you all my life.
