It's a sad day here at Old Maid HQ. Ringo Stu Kitty, beloved cat of Monica of 5 Cats Shy, brother of the dearly departed Seamus Patrick O'Kitty and excellent roadtrip buddy crossed the Rainbow Bridge last night.
Ringo Stu was a six-pound cat with a lion-sized personality. He always greeted guests at the door like the gentleman he was. Ringo was an excellent conversationalist who enjoyed talking on the phone with his grandma Kathleen and expressing himself on many topics. He was also a talented singer who enjoyed xylophone music and would sing along with Buddy Holly's "Every Day" and the Beastie Boys' "Girls." His cow impersonations were legendary.
Ringo was a very cuddly cat who would by means of stealth get onto his mother's lap at any opportunity. He loved his mother very much, and he also had love to share with others. When we were traveling across the country, I woke up many times with Ringo curled up on my belly. Ringo was a lot of love in a very small package.
Ringo is survived by his mother Monica, his grandma Kathleen, his aunt Michelle, his aunt Maria, and his cousins Huckleberry and Daphne Clementine Katz. Godspeed, "Ringo Stulio down at the schoolyard."
