Mr. Arnold, one of my older cats, passed away Thursday after a long decline.
He was named Arnie at birth for reasons I no longer remember in detail; his namesake was Arnold Schwarzenegger. It fit him very well when he reached adulthood; he was big, rangy and strong. But one day I tried "Mr. Arnold" as an experiment and he expressed a definite preference for that.
I'll miss you, Mr. Arnold.
