Ringo. Requies-cat in pace.
It saddens me to report the passing of Ringo, beloved kitty-companion of SWMBO’s brother Morris William and his family.
Ringo has the distinction of being (probably) the only cat a photograph of whose asshole has graced the New York Times science webpage. (We should all be thankful that we live in an age in which the technology exists to make this possible.)
I like to imagine Ringo arriving on the far shore after crossing the Rainbow Bridge, there to rejoin his erstwhile companions Screech (whose name was an accurate description of his voice), Woobie, and Chester the Molester. Perhaps he will meet Hakuna, Matata, and Neighbor there as well.
Ave atque vale, Ringo! You will be sorely missed.
