Of the three cats in the picture, the only one I still have is Yoda, the silver tabby. Earnest, at the back had kidney disease and finally had enough at the end of 2017. He was 16.
Next to Yoda is Romeo, his sidekick that I got from a shelter and to my surprise, they bonded immediately and were inseparable. Two months after I got Romeo, I moved and he was run over at the new place a month later. I have no idea what posessed him to go to the road and it was heartbreaking to find him in the morning. Yoda has never been the same since. He was also fond of Earnest, his cat-dad. I think that he still misses them.
