RALEIGH, the Valley Cat "BLONDIE"
Birth: 1996
Death: Aug. 11, 2008
Bergen County
New Jersey, USA

I had the good fortune to find him. Abandoned as a kitten during an awful heat wave, he grew to be a gentle giant. His given name was Raleigh, which means "from the deer meadow" because that was where he came into my life. I suppose, since he was blonde and a real character, somehow he became The Blondie. Because of his extraordinary ability to defy gravity (well, at least during the first year of his life) by moving with perfect form through the air -horizontally- in a very unique sitting position, and landing gracefully on target, he was also known as "The Flying Blondini". He truly loved his mommy and got along with his three "brothers" Romeo, Wiley & Kiwi, and one "sister" Tsunami. He had an uncanny way of communicating with his eyes. He obviously had an active mind and I truly believe he was trying to articulate his thoughts. He became sick as a result of the melamime pet food scandal and died at home during the 12th summer of his short life. As of this writing, only Wiley survives and I expect he will cross the 'Rainbow Bridge' within the next year to be reunited with his beloved companions.
