TEXT:

” Paul the cat had finally reached the ripe old age of 23. He had lived a very colorful life. He was born on the mean streets of New York City and had to figure out how to manage as an alley cat which often meant stealing his meals from restaurant trashcans and fighting rival cats. Once he had even started a riot that involved all of the neighborhood cats meowing in protest for more food. It was quickly put down by the police, leaving Paul with a piece of his tail missing. Unfortunately, one of his friends had turned him in as the instigator which led to him spending a night in jail. Being turned in by a friend was the biggest betrayal he’d ever faced; it changed his outlook on life. He was eventually found by a nice family and adopted. It took him a long time to adjust to life as a docile feline, but with time he was able to assimilate to life in suburbia. His owners never put him down when he made mistakes and they never made him feel unwelcome; they treated him like part of the family.

At the age of 23 he had seen and done many things. He had also lost many friends along the way. Only a few years ago his friend Steve the cat had been diagnosed with feline cancer and had to be put down. After Steve had passed away Paul felt very lonely. He continued his daily routines like spending the day sleeping, scratching the furniture, and throwing up hair balls, but life wasn’t the same without his friend. Although, his favorite activity was looking for mice, even that had lost its appeal. He would look under the couch, in the attic, and behind the plants as he’d always done and sometimes, he would get lucky and find one, but most days he would call off his search after a few hours and go back to sleep. He would sleep all day, go for a short walk around the house, then turn in for the night around 9pm. “
