I was lucky enough to meet Joey at the end of 2013 when his family needed help with medication and canned food when they were out of town. I got even luckier that I had the privilege of continuing to care for Joey for the next two years whenever he was home alone. Joey was an old man full of meow personality. His very favorite thing was getting treats from the kitchen pantry and his second favorite thing was snuggling on the couch. Joey was a silly stair walker; on the way up he'd walk as normal but on the way down, he'd hop with his back feet together. I can still hear that thump, thump, thump as I followed him down with his empty food bowl. Joey was losing his hearing and he had a resultant very loud meow that he used to hurry me up when I was getting his food, getting his treats, and getting settled on the couch and inviting him up. Joey had the silkiest, softest fur of any cat I've ever met and I was often distracted from my chores by the opportunity to reach out and stroke his precious face. Joey was with his momma through her growing to adult years, and I know that he took the responsibility of being her mentor and support very seriously. I know he's still watching over her. I'd like to think that my Sammy was met by Joey when he arrived and that the two of them shared a warm bit of sunshine and a chatter about the birds outside. Rest easy, Mr. Joey. You are cherished, and missed by many and we look forward to seeing you again.
