|Death: ||Mar. 31, 2006|
A favorite of my friend Olivia, Rusty was a handsome orange tabby who lived among many other cats in Olivia's backyard.
Based on captions Olivia wrote on the back of Rusty's pictures, he was "new 2004, deceased 3/31/2006".
Rusty's was the only cat picture whereon Olivia noted a date of death.
The caption "new" suggests Rusty had shown up one day in her yard and was not a cat she raised from kittenhood.
I believe Rusty was so friendly that Olivia felt he had gotten lost from someone's home, as she noted "lost 2004" on his one photo, while his date of death was on another, 2 years later.
Olivia's cats died for many reasons, though not for lack of trying to keep them well on her part. While sometimes unidentifiable diseases got them, sometimes cars, other cats or dogs got them. Sometimes evil people did too. I have to wonder if evil people were behind Rusty's death, as he was more trusting of humans than any of her truly feral cats. The fact she knew and noted his date of death suggests he did not wander off to die.
