In Loving Memory - Rascal The Cat


"Rascal" April 1997 to January 11, 2011

Rascal  (pronounced Rascale) was a rescued kitten found hidden in a bag in a dumpster behind Costco- my sister's place of work.

Rascal came home to live with us and become a little brother to our much older 17 year old cat -Geraldine.

Rascal was a friendly playful kitten who would jump high when he was just a baby.  He also attempted to nurse from Geraldine, who, had been fixed and never had children of her own as he brought her new found energy during her last days.

Rascal outlived his younger brother Sven, who died at age 7 of liver disease and he also outlived his brother - Caesar, the pug.

Rascal's fur was silky smooth as he was a very clean and sophisticated cat.

Rascal used to meow at my door in the middle of the night and would sleep with me on my twin size bed.  Of course, I always accomodated him.

When strangers tried to pick him up, he would play possum and make his body dead weight. He was very smart.

Rascal is survived by his younger brother Jack the cat, his mama Sharon, his auntie Theresa and Lynn, his dad, John and his uncles Mike and Steve.

On January 11, 2011, Rascal went to Kitty Heaven.

Rascal you will be missed.
