In memory of Onyx, no this is not a real pic of him but similar to wat he looked like!
As some of you read in the "Calling all Clan Members" forum, used to hav a cat, named Onyx! He was my first black cat and my last! Here the story of my cycle of cats.........
I got Onyx wen i was really younge, to younge to remember the age, my guess was around 1st grade! I got him at a pets mart near my neighborhood. It was a year after I got my first cat's. One was a cat named Sandy, he was a golden tabby tom with gleaming golden eyes and another cat called Squirrel, who was a beautiful gray tabby she-cat, I speak this of memory only, but sadly i dont remember Squirrel's eye color. Sandy, and Squirrel were littermates, Sandy was my brother's cat and Squirrel was my sisters. I wanted a cat of my own, so wen my B~day came, i went to petsmart and picked out Onyx, he was a slim black cat with a spot of white on his chest and golden eyes. I remember coming home every day from School with my sister and finding Onyx locked in drawers by the mean teenagers that lived with us, at the time. Then not long after, Squirrel was being taken to the vet, but sadly her catcarryer wasnt screwed in and wen it accedently dropped, she fled. A couple day's later, Squirrel was discovered dead, on the highway near the vet's place. That was the last i ever saw of the beautiful gray tabby she-cat. Then half a year later, Onyx and Sandy, our two toms, were let out of the house to hunt in the forest near our backyard like they normally dd. But that nightg, Sandy returned alone. We sent out posters n everything but the same teenagers that lived with us that locked Onyx n a drawer everyday, finally crossed the line. They hung Onyx n one of there friends backyard's, on a tree, there friends mother called and told us the grave news. Fear for her family, my mother kicked the teenagers and there parents out of our house and not after we moved away.
Now, I live in a new neighborhood, the same place where i met Bluefire and were still bff's! The good new's is even though his littermate Squirrel, and Onyx are gone, Sandy's still around! He's almost 10 years old, and i got 2 new cats now. A year after i moved to my new house i got a new cat named Penny, she's a gray tabby she-cat like Squirrel was, and has a pretty pelt and beautiful emerald eyes. But shes not as friendly as Squirrel was and often keeps to herself unless she wants food or to be let outside. And this year, in December 2009, i got another new cat. His name is Fitz, he's mixed of many different cats, but his pelt color is gray, and he's got golden eyes, that match Onyx's perfectly, and somtimes makes me think Im looking at Onyx even if Fitz is sitting right infront of me. He sleeps in my room every night and go outside every day, he loves attention, especially from me since i was the one who raised him and I couldnt have been happier. Although sometimes i wonder if Onyx was still around, he died younge, a year old. Hope you ddnt cry to it!
Heres a real pic of my new cat, Fitz! As some say, the replacement of Onyx! Altthough he;s a cat now not kitten! I took this the first night i got Fitz!
Heres a cat simliar to Sandy! Except Sandy's a tabby!
