We adopted Zeus (or rather, he adopted us!) from the Center for Animal Care & Control in Brooklyn, NY, in April of 1999, and the rest is history =) We didn't know about his past or even what his original name was; we only knew that he was about four years old.

Zeus gave us five wonderful years and more love than we thought was ever possible. He died of bloat on September 24, 2004.

As difficult as today is, part of me can't help remembering the funny times, like when Zeus had his first Christmas with us and he went to hike up on the tree (he didn't pee, though lol). Or when the neighbor's cat wouldn't stop using underneath our deck as a litter box, so he hiked up on his head. (That time, he *did* pee.) Or during the winters when he'd have to climb the highest snow banks and mark his territory on top of them. Enough time has gone by with him so that I laugh at the funny times more than cry at how much I miss him.
