Had to say goodbye to a dear friend today.
Some people think this picture was staged, but Mango would nearly hang out on my shoulder anytime I was sitting in that chair (I guess it was his chair)
Mango succumbed to a slow degenerative illness today, quite unexpectantly, he was just 11
Always in a good mood (cat's tail standing straight up == same as a dog wagging theirs)
Often on the lookout for visitors -- the day he spotted a bobcat -- luckily on the other side of the glass
Even on vigilant guard duty here in FL
While you couldn't tell from this picture, Mango and Mao were never really friends, though often inseparable while patrolling outside.
Mao died earlier this year, having lived to 18, he did see FL though we weren't really sure if he could make the trip
Goodbye Mango, keep watch over us.
