Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)

Clyde was the second cat my Nana had while I was growing up. As a stray, we weren't sure as to his age. However, he was a very playful boy who loved to chase toys and play with peacock feathers.
Unfortunately, Clyde was also epileptic. This lead to some difficulty in caring for him at times, as he would seize against walls in his epileptic fits. We were able to reduce them somewhat with medication, but we imagine this must have been difficult for him to experience as it was for us to watch.
Despite his health condition, Clyde lived a relatively long and happy life and did enjoy the great outdoors from time to time. Of all the cats my Nana had growing up, I feel that Clyde was the one I bonded most closely with, and I look forward to encountering another feline just like him.
