I think Spooky is 6 years old. I don't know what breed he is, perhaps some Angora. Spooky comes for breakfast and dinner. He actually lives 3 houses away. He seems to be best friends with my cat Squirt.
He likes to catch mice and stalk squirrels. Spooky really is a sweet boy, he loves to be held and cuddled. He purrs so loudly that it's comforting to me. Spooky either sleeps at our house or his owner's house and gets a nice bowl of half and half every morning and just before I go to sleep.

I love how you spoil him and how he loves you back for it!
Thank you for commenting on Spooky. Sadly, he developed cancer and was put to sleep on October 26th. I cried my eyes out and went to his grave, got on my knees and said a prayer for him.
Spooky divided his time between me and his real owners.
He was such a wonderful cat and the last time I saw him was that Monday morning and I picked him up and cuddled my face into his neck like I always did and told him how much I loved him and that I see him when I got back in the afternoon.
He had two hard lumps on his stomach and his Vet did not think he make it through surgery. He also had Bortadella 4+ stage, that had been diagnosed over two years ago.
I had noticed that he had slowed down and wasn't particularly hungry but he was a picky eater to begin with.
I knew Spooky a good year before I even met his real owners. Spooky's owner Echo (her real name) use to say, I was Spooky's 2nd mama. I also was the only person to ever give the cat a bath.
I had just washed my 2 cats and since I was already wet I thought why not wash Spooky. He was so good, he didn't try to bite or scratch me. Echo was so impressed that I was able to wash him.
I miss him terribly, he would follow me around like one of my dogs. He loved to be held and cuddled. I've had my share of cats growing up and I've never had one that purred as loud as Spooky.
He was a great cat and though I miss him, I'm glad he's not hurting anymore and if I didn't know better I would almost swear that all the squirrels have come out of hiding and the birds are singing louder than normal. Spooky was quite the hunter and he also kept all other roaming cats out of our neighborhood.
This was his neighborhood and for all I know I was one of his servants. He truly was quite a lovable character.
He will always hold a special place in my heart.
Oh what a sweetie, I'm so sorry about your loss! At least he's not in pain anymore. He's darling! Love that long, thick tail!
From Spooky's actual owner. Spooky was the most beautiful cat I have ever shared my life with and I have lived long and had many wonderful cats. Spooky died last week. We had to put him down, which I hate, but he had cancer, AND Bartonella, and I was NOT going to let him suffer.. He was a character. He adored Blessed Assurance (53) and lived all over the neighborhood, coming home to sleep and scarf down half-and-half, which eventually everyone left out for him. Spooky was "The Cat Who Owned A Whole Street," and welcome at most doors. Loved by everyone.
Your cat Spooky is almost identical to my Spooky. I had to take him to the Vets to be put down today. I am completely devastated and heart broken. He was the the best cat and I don't think I will ever get over losing him. I got Spooky from a co-worker in 1996/1997. He was about 15/16 years old and had cancer (stomach, liver, and lungs) on top of Asthma and Hyperthyroidism. He had the best and sweetest personality. Reading about your Spooky reminds me so much of my Spooky. God bless and thank you for sharing this beautiful story.
