Truth be told I have never met my late friend FRed DaBrit Siamese, nor his lowly man servant Roy. All I know is they have been strong supporters of me and my shenanigans for years. It is amazing who you meet online, and how close they can become.
Today I got an email message:
FRed(tm) passed away last night after a valiant struggle.
To you Roy, and your family all the way in the UK, I send you my sympathies as I too mourn Fred. That cat was so important to us all, and made us smile. I am not only sending my love but of course I am sending my controversial hugs.:)
