Alas, cats never live long enough. At least he will live on in a lot of happy memories.

What a remarkable little guy. He made people happy what more can we ask of our fur friends?

Freya is right, they never live long enough.

What a darling, and so sad that he has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
There does seem to be something about cats and trains, too:
(Not a new story, I know, except I wasn't aware Tama now has an apprentice.)

What a remarkable cat and a remarkable story! This cat reminds me of Hachiko the dog in Japan and from the marvelous movie, "Hachi: A Dog's Tale" who always would see his owner off in the morning and wait for him faithfully every day until he got home- however in that story the owner sadly died before Hachiko. But it didn't stop the very loyal dog from trying to still greet his owner every day. Both of these stories are so amazing and beautiful! Both about such loyal animals with such an incredible capacity to love!! Graeme you will always be remembered by your wonderful family and by so many others for touching their lives in such a magical way! Thanks Cher.

Such a handsome fellow who will now grace the heavens. He will be sorely missed in his neighborhood but will live on in many hearts, a nice legacy for any kitty -- or human.

The loss of a pet is heartbreaking. He was a special cat who loved is parents dearly and they loved him the same.
Rest in peace "Station Cat"

Lovely creature, how much smart and loving cat!!!! But the article said that 'he loved chocolate'.......but chocolate is not good for cats, is toxic.......nooooooooo, I hope this has not helped to make him ill :(((((((

When my last cat died, and I was really cut up about it for a very long time, I was told, 'Remember and smile.' I hope that Graeme's people are able to do that before too long.
