RIP Red Man

Photo from 2009
Our big orange cat, Red Man, died tonight.  He's not been well the whole day, and this evening we couldn't rouse him.  John went out to check on him at about 9 pm and he'd passed away.  I'm very sad, since he's our oldest animal, he's been part of our family for so many years. I swear I really think he's must be over 20 years old, and he's been an outside cat all that time.

Most of his life he's lived out in the barn or in John's shed out on the cliff.  He's always preferred to be on his own.  This past couple of years he moved up to the porch, and putting up with the other animals.

We will miss him terribly, the place won't be the same without him.


  1. So sad :( Rest in Peace, Red Man. We loved you, buddy. He lived a good barn cat life. Y'all took great care of him. I'm sure he and Carlie are snuggling warm tonight. <3

  2. He was an amazing cat who lived a huge full life, loved by a family and always fed the finest of cat foods. RIP.
