Baltazar was part of our family from November 2, 1996 to February 4, 2014.
He was a friendly, silly, cuddly blessing, and we are thankful to have enjoyed 17.5 years with him.
He was a wonderful little brother (to Niobe, who passed away 3 years ago) and a wonderful big brother (to everyone else!), even when the kittens (Allistair & Stephen) came into the family and had no idea that they maybe shouldn't flop down right on top of him to enjoy his soft cushiness.
He was a love. He blessed our lives, and we miss him.

We miss you, Baltazar.
