Domino 1990-2010

Domino showed up at our house on December 24, 1990...


...and Mom named her Domino because she was wearing a domino mask, like the ones worn at carnival.


She gained fame when her image was featured on a door hanger for New York's Hotel Pennsylvania.


When she sat on my lap, which for the past few years was every mealtime, I often dressed her up and swore that she'd be a shoe-in for a part in Fiddler on the Roof.


She celebrated her 20th birthday just last September.


One of her favourite things was to drink milky tea from a mug. I'd make a cup of tea especially for her when I was fixing a cup for myself.


In the past week, almost exactly twenty years to the day she appeared, her health started to deteriorate and she passed away. I will miss you my sweet Domino.

Getting all choked up again. A lovely tribute to a very special cat. She will be missed by many, but most of all by you.

I was so sorry to hear about Domino. As the companion of an old doggie, I know how bittersweet your memories must be. Thanks for sharing Domino's story.
P.S. The word verification I got was catsun ...can you believe it? I'm sure this means she's in a wonderful place.
