Scruffy the cat died last night

Scruffy was a true cat – a loner, inquisitive, studious, playful, and generous with affection

Only on his terms

Neutered and declawed, he was a house cat, who always wanted outside, but once there wanted in

Born in Iowa City, saved from medical experiments

His life was a gift and so was his affection to others

Head tilted right

Head tilted left

He was intense about the world

He will be missed as much as Buffy the mutt and Rojo the golden

And the unnamed animals to follow

Animals are needed

They make us human
