This story is my story. Like Santo, my kitty was a Tuxedo cat named ‘Lardbutt’. My bond with Lardbutt was very deep, and my ex-wife recognized this bond and she graciously allowed me custody of Lardbutt in the divorce proceedings. Lardbutt ate too much food EVERY day — which is how he acquired his name. Lardbutt lived for 22 years and cancer finally did him in — but I still think of that well-dressed fat purring ball of fluffy love every day !
