We are all very sad because today Orbit had to be put to sleep. He was one of the most “expressive” cats I have ever met, and through a long decline in which he was unable to walk or eat very well, he was still as expressive as ever! I remember hearing a story about when Richie was on the phone with a telemarketer, as Orbit was “talking” at full volume, sounding much like a small child, and finally after a few minutes on the phone, the telemarketer on the line said to Richie: “um.. are you going to take care of that baby or not?” Our thoughts are with Richie as we say goodbye to Mr. Orby.
