Ace was our beloved fat cat that we adopted in March 2012 when he was just 10 months old. We adopted him with his litter mate buddy, Jinx. They were the best of buds. Ace loved grooming Jinx and running around the house with Jinx and sleeping cuddled together. It took me forever to find a picture without the two of them together!
Ace was such a sweet, soft, cuddly boy that loved to have his belly rubbed. He would actually walk right in front of you flop down at your feet and roll over to expose to his belly to show you that he wanted his belly rubbed. And his purring was so loud, it sounded like a motor.
Some of my fondest memories of Ace are of him jumping on the bed while we were making it and running under the covers becoming just a lump darting here and there. When he finally would come out, he would flop over on the clean sheets expecting, you guessed it, belly rubs!
While sitting watching T.V., he would sit on my lap curled up in ball and would just purr away while I stroked his back and neck.
Three weeks ago, he became sick and stopped eating and became very lethargic. Unfortunately, we couldnt figure out what was making him so sick. We put him on meds, but he kept getting sicker. Finally after four days, he was in so much pain, and without knowing what the cause of his sickness was or why the meds werent making him any better, we had to make the tough decision to put him down. It was heartbreaking. He wasnt even 4 years old. It was the hardest decision we ever had to make. We loved him so much.
Dr. Jess and Jenny were very supportive through the entire process and I think were heart broken as much we were.
Ace will be missed tremendously, not only by us, but also by his feline brother, Jinx, canine brother, Shadow and canine sister Keira. He was loved so very much.
Goodbye sweet little boy.
