[ alexi sleeping on the fridge ] [ alexi under the dog bed ]

We lost our 11 year old cat Alexi, to lymphatic cancer on 3 August 2004. I got Alexi and Ivan as kittens from the Portland Animal Shelter and brought them all the way up to Fairbanks. Alexi and Ivan weren't really brothers, but they were the left over kittens from each of their abandoned litters, so the shelter staff put them together. Alexi was very playful and really enjoyed chasing the red light from a laser pointer and the sunlight flashing off a watch crystal. He was an ardent bird watcher from a perch on top of the couch. He was also a very sweet cat that would come under the covers and snuggle for awhile before suddenly getting up and leaving the room. I used to joke that he had a secret project that he needed to work on while we were sleeping.

I hope he finishes it wherever he is now. We'll miss him.
