Duke...

Duke...

... a.k.a. the world's greatest cat...

While doing early spring cleaning yesterday, a came across some B&W film that I shot for a photography class.

This is Duke - my wife brought him and his sister (Duchess) home a little after our first christmas together in 1987. We immediately bonded, and he followed me everywhere...

When we came home from Disney World in 1992, he snubbed me. He stopped sitting in my lap, and started curling up in my wife's lap. We didn't realize this at the time, but we came home with a little extra souvenir, and he curled up on my wife's belly all throughout her pregnancy with our oldest daughter.

After Ashley was born, he became her de-facto protector. He stopped sleeping on our bed, and would sleep across the doorway to her room...

He passed away about 6 years ago, and there are times I still miss him....
