Most cats take off in a flash when you turn on a vacuum cleaner. Not Cotton. He liked it and would let Merry vacuum his long white fur when he was shedding (see the video below if you don't believe us.)
When I lived in Welland, Merry, Rob and Cotton became my neighbours. Although Merry and Rob liked my dog Timmi, the same could not be said for Cotton. If Timmi went to their place for a visit, Cotton would hide and once Timmi went home, Cotton would pee on the floor. As a result, Timmi wasn't welcome at their place anymore.
Cotton liked to get cozy on big sofa chairs and watched TV with Merry. He greeted Rob each morning and always liked when Patty, Deryk and Joanna came to visit.
Our heartfelt condolences go to Merry and her family on the sudden loss of Cotton. He was a very special pussycat and we will never forget him.
