Timpleton, named after the fat, glutenous rat in Charlotte's web, died today. He drove with us from Clearwater, Fl to New castle, De. He lived in West Philly and on both sides of the Hudson River Valley. He became a farm cat late in life, learning to hunt mice, birds, and chipmunk. He scrapped with New Hampshire's fiercest barn felines, and camped outside to protect young pigs from hungry bear. He returned to city life when we moved to Rutland, Vermont and spent his final days in the suburban-esque stylings of Clarendon.
Thank you, Timmus, for all that you gave us. You were loved by many, rattled the allergies of few, and will never be forgotten.
