Zak Leone September 1996 – May 8, 2011
~ A Tribute to my Buddy Zak ~
I rescued you from the shelter parking lot in 1996 when you were about 8-10 weeks old. It was love at first sight for me, you were everything I was looking for as I always wanted a male long haired cat and there you were on that September 21st day. You were just the cutest little ball of fur, so full of life..and we got you on my daughters 8th birthday..very special day in all ways!!
As the kids got older we nicknamed you *Bushy Tushy* cause you were so furry and cute. You were also such a talker. If anyone asked you if you were *Good* you always replied with a *Meow*….you were even known as *physic kitty* cause if the kids asked you a question and you meowed it meant *yes*..all the kids liked coming over and talking to you..
You were the only male cat at home and your *sister cats* loved and respected you. You were always by my side and I loved how you cuddeled around me at night when I put out the bedroom light, you stayed on me until I fell asleep, and now I don’t sleep to well cause I’m missing my Big Boy…
It especially broke my heart in pieces when you got sick and to lose you was unbearable…I read the poem the Rainbow Bridge and someday I will see you again. Until then Rest in Peace and always know that you were So Good, and so very Loved by all especially me. It was an honor to be your *mommy* for 15 wonderful years..I love you Zak and will never forget you…xoxo
