C.B. and Cato

Cato and C.B. Sophison were brothers born in the spring of 1992. Their mother was Sophie (hence the name "Sophison." Well, why can't cats have their own family names?)

C.B. means "Cato's Brother" but could also be "cream & butter" which suited his coloring and his soft, loving personality. He would often get under the blanket when I went to sleep and I could adjust him as well as if he were a teddy bear.

Cato also craved affection, clinging when held. He was often very loud and persistent, sometimes saying "hullo?" He was quite a character!

Towards the end, C.B. had cancer. He did well on radiation treatments until he had to be euthanized in June of 2010. He was a very sweet, loving companion and I'll miss him always.

Cato took a turn for the worst about a year later and sadly, needed to be put to sleep November 3, 2011 at the age of 19 and a half years old. He had a unique personality and was well-liked by anyone who knew him. I will miss and love him forever, too.
