It has been a few weeks since we have talked about it, but the kids will periodically say how they miss him and I will have my moments where I pull in the driveway expecting him to run out waiting for us to pet him as we are heading into the house. We still have Misha and Nadia and that makes them feel a little bit better. If you didn't hear the latest news on Nadia, you can go here.
It sure is hard to say "Good-bye".
He was part tabby, part Siamese. The kids and I always thought his eyes were awesome because they crossed a little bit.
I was 5 months along with Chad when I found Nikolai stuck in a gutter right outside our apartments. The firemen came to the rescue for me. So nice of them. Though they said they really aren't supposed to help in those situations. They came because they said they had nothing else to do. :)
This is his famous "I am getting aggravated with you" face. His tail would twitch too. We always thought it was kind of funny until he literally nailed ya! He had some sharp claws too.
