Farewell to Bartok the Cat

Farewell to my beautiful Bartok.
Bartok passed away at 19-years of age. He was a most handsome and elegant seal point Himalayan who was admired by everyone who visited my farm. Bartok was also the last of six cats I purchased from Connecticut breeder, Jo Ubogy, and affectionately named after great classical composers - his brothers were Mozart, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Verdi and Berlioz. Himmies, as cat fanciers call them, are wonderful companions, but Bartok was especially sweet-tempered, calm and gentle. He loved to be petted and groomed, and always came running whenever I called his name. He loved his meals at the kitty buffet in my servery, and he loved spending time relaxing on the veranda, and strolling around the gardens near my home. I will miss him very much and so will my other cats and dogs.
