Deuce 2004-2017

It's with great sadness that I announce the passing of another of the Wandering Cat clan.
Late this week we had to say goodbye to Mom's mighty house panther... the noble Deuce.
Deuce started life with my brother's family. Miss Pee was just a wee one. He got his name thanks to the extra toes on his front feet...
Big double dew claws that gave him "mitts"
We he was a couple years old, he had some pretty serious health issues. My brother was long-haul trucking, and my sister-in-law had her hands full with a toddling Miss Pee, so Mom took Deuce in. he recovered quite nicely  and took over their house....
... and the neighbourhood.
Like all the cats of our clan, he had a good long life - spoiled as could be.
 While he was quick to tell you when he didn't like something...
He was also quick with a purr and a snuggle.
 He will be very much missed.
