Born in the fall of 2005 or spring of 2006
Died on July 28, 2021

We are sad to announce that we had to put Monique to sleep on July 28, 2021 at the age of 15 years due to complications from kidney failure.

Monique came to us as a stray in the fall of 2006 and hung around our bird feeder until we finally let her in the house in January of 2007. She was one of those cats that always liked visitors. While some cats run and hide when people come over, Monique was usually the first to jump up on their lap to investigate. When we had company stay overnight in our guest room, Monique would climb in bed with them, and then climb in their suitcase just before they would leave. It was always a joke that we had to check everyone's luggage to make sure somebody didn't run off with our cat.

Monique was also a show off. When we would sit on the porch visiting with people, Monique would run and jump in the vase in the corner and then pop her head up to see if we were watching. I use the video below for the end credits of my travel documentaries:

It is always hard to let someone you love go. Monique was a unique member of our family and will be greatly missed.
