My wonderful little boy

I can still remember the day that I first met Mischief in June 2000 at the pet store in Rota Spain. He was such a precious little one boy. I had just lost my puppy and wasn't looking for another pet. However, I just shouldn't keep from thinking about him while walking around. I went back to the store and bougth him and that was the start of our story. The vet told me that he was no more then 5 weeks old.
It took me a few weeks to find a name to fix his personality. It never fail after 12 hour shift to find him in the curtains, lamp shade, or higher. I would laugh at him as I picked him up and would ask if he was up to mischief. After a while it just stuck with him. I have never owned a Siamese and this was a new adventure.
We have been around that the country together. He has been a wonderful company for me as well as a great protector. There has only been one man that he has truly liked and didn't do anything to him. I have to laugh about the first guy that I dated after bringing him home. Mischief didn't like him one bit. He used his shoes as a litter box, grab him with his claws, or bite and run. LOL!!! Do I need to say more. After that, I would always listen to his advise in the love department. I now have a wonderful husband that loves Mischief just as much as I do.
Mischief has always had a healthy life. However, we were just told that he has lung cancer. This news has destroyed me. I can't believe that he will leave this world like this. He is only 12 years old. I have always thought that he would be with us for another 6 to 8 years but I guess the good Lord other plans in mind. I have decided not to put him through chemotherapy just keep him comfortable and happy.
He is laying in our lap as I am typing this and crying my eyes out. At this point, I know that I want to make his last days just as wonderful for him as he has made it for me. All the years of purring, wrestling, chase, and traveling.
I just wish everyone could experience the love from a Siamese like we have.
