My friend Jane had an old cat who passed away today.

This is the tribute I sent to her.


I'm so very sad to hear about the passing of your wonderful cat, Matisse.

We will miss his commanding presence and regal composure.
He was always true to his feline nature with his outward sense of superiority
and his unrelenting demand to be acknowledged AND ignored simultaneously, a feat lesser cats would envy.

That he put up with you for so long is a testament to your ability to live down to his expectations.
He owned you.

Well done.
