It is with great sadness that I relate that my cherished and beloved
Gateway passed away on the morning of 30 October 2001. He had
cytauxzoonosis, a rare, basically incurable parasitic protozoan disease
carried by bobcats and transmitted by ticks. He loved to sit in
woods and watch the squirrels, birds and other wildlife here in
Florida. He never harmed any living thing; he was NOT allowed to
roam unattended; Linda and/or I always accompanied him when he was
He was a truly wonderful and unique entity and is sorely missed; he has
left a tremendous empty space in our lives and hearts.
Gateway, the coolest little quadruped around!!
Guarding the top of the steps!
