Xor (pronounced: Zor) was a boundless source of unconditional love for more than ten years. He was remarkable in a hundred ways.

I remember my dad, who had hated cats all his life, sitting in his easy chair with Xor on his lap, petting him for hours while watching TV. There were many others who found their dislike for cats melt away when faced with Xor's purr, and his unabashed love for people.

Xor was the sweetest cat in the whole world, and a certified feline genius. Everyone who met him thought he was wonderful, and very special. It would take volumes to express how much value he added to my life. Perhaps one day I will try, but for now it is too soon.

I will probably have another cat eventually, but Xor will never be replaced.
