All About Felix--A Tribute to a Dear Buddy

Felix was spoiled rotten. He was jealous of the computer, did not like for me to read a newspaper, or go to bed. He would attack me and then run and hide. He was fastened on a leash and chain when I let him outside. He would give you five, shake your hand and sit up and beg, and he would lay down when I told him to (mostly if he was going to anyway--you know how independent cats are.)


He thought he was a dog. He loved to watch the deer out the window and was constantly watching the birds at the feeder. He was all black except for about 8 white hairs on his neck and 2 in his left ear. He was a cool cat--he had been tattooed (for identification).

In August 2004, we had to have Felix put to sleep because he bit me with only one tooth and poisoned me with a bacteria that hospitalized me for five weeks and four days, having to have penicillin IVs every 4 hours and another antibiotic IV every 8 hours the entire time.

I miss him so much, but I don't want this to happen to anyone else, especially my dear sweet great-granddaughter, Morrigan Rosanna, who has had two open heart surgeries before age one, now two and 1/2, and is doing great, thanks to God and all the prayers for her.



He had his own screen name and profile:

  • Member Name: FelixtheCat22
  • Location: South of Wheeling WV USA
  • Marital Status: Single
  • Hobbies: Sleeping, eating, and gardening (but not much, I dig, fertilize and water)
  • Computers: Made it myself, a typewriter, a TV hotwired to rabbit ears, 2 catfood cans with string. A mouse? what mouse? (burp!) 'scuse me.
  • Occupation: retired (What else? after what they done to me!)
  • Personal Quote: Let sleeping dogs lie.

I'm sorry you had to give up your kitty, Felix. He definitely was a cutie. Felix fully enjoyed his life with you and you did your best.

Allena, I'm so sorry to hear about your beautiful child! I know what you have been thru too. I, myself had the same thing happen to me on Memorial Day weekend. Our beautiful "Sassy Girl" (calico) bit me too, and I also was hospitalized. The Doctors thougth I would lose my arm due to it.


I did recover, but My Beautiful girl didnt. She was startled by a neighbors dog. We live on a farm and all our cats are spade and shots and preventive meds. My heart goes out to you and your loved ones. neen

Hi Allena,
So sorry to hear about all of the problems with the bite and losing your dear Felix. He looks like he was quite a character. I know that my cats like to help me "work" also. Glad to hear that you great granddaughter is doing well.
Take care,

Would it not have been feasable to just pull
the cats' tooth...instead of putting him down??
