Augustus, Jamie and Joseph
Maria and Albert diMeglio have been great cat owners over many years and have given so much to their cats, above and beyond. Maria and Albert adopted Maria’s mother’s cats when her mother got sick. These beloved kitties of unknown age had been declining for several months and recently all passed away within two weeks of each other. Remembrance donation by Berni Leahy, December 2017
A few words about each of the cats from Maria:
Augustus, Jamie and Joseph were rescued cats who we took in when my mother got sick.
Augustus was a big guy, very handsome and majestic. As big as he was, that’s how gentle he was. He was a true gentleman who had two girlfriends, Jamie and China, who would sleep with him and lick him on his head. We will miss this gentle soul, who was always so kind and loving to us and to his brothers and sisters. He was a trooper until the end.
Jamie was one of Augustus’ girlfriends. She was a tuxedo cat and simply adorable. As tiny as she was, she was a holy terror with the other cats. She ruled the household in her own way. She loved to hide in the most unusual places. We will miss her big eyes and little cries. I will miss, most of all, her little head resting on my lap. She was a trooper until the end.
Joseph was a skinny fellow but looks can be deceiving because he was very strong. He loved being petted and you could do that for hours. He was very quiet until he gave out a big wail in the middle of the night and he was always thinking as he looked around the apartment. He was also a great jumper. He loved his cat beds and enjoyed eating chicken, ham, cheese, and turkey. We loved his little black nose. He was simply so lovable. He was a trooper until the end.
We will love you always, Maria, Albert, and Julio
