Our little neighborhood newspaper had an office cat. His name was PD the Copy Boy. His predecessor was Extra, the Personnel Director. Thus the name PD.
PD was born in the summer of 2001. He came aboard the newspaper September 8th of that year.
He had been hungry and thirsty and tired of dodging cars in the parking lot, had a talent for amusing humans, offering lots of love, affection, and friendship in return for food, water, and shelter.
PD died November 28th, possibly of pancreatis and related complications.
There will be more on him in the paper soon. They want to do a whole article about him.
He lived two blocks away, and looked like a wonderful friendly kitty.
We didn't know him, but thought a newspaper office cat should get the honor of an article in the paper, and a mention here, too.
With love, and a lit candle to light his way,
May he meet lots of sweet kitties over the Rainbow Bridge, and continue sharing his love with all the animals there.
