I was very blessed to have known and loved a truly remarkable and special

mancat, OT (Orange Thing) Mahoney.

Before I met OT I lived life with reckless abandon. Things that were

exciting and dangerous were what attracted me. But then I met OT.

Dangerous and thrilling things were still interesting, but OT was willing

to experience dem wif me. My caticopter flying tended to scare him, so I

tried to be a liddle more restrained in my maneuvers, but no matter how

nervous him getted him never, ever complained.

OT was allez there for me. Him was allez dere when I needed his support,

an when dere were good fings to celebrate. OT was mine companion, and him

cared deeply fur da whole community, and him tried to be a good companion

to da Gramby. Him was handsome, an brave, and him danzed good.

When him getted sick all of a sudden it camed as a shock to all of usses.

Him left fur da Bridge before him even had a chance to say goodbye. I will

rememfur him allez, and will luf him allez.

Goodbye, OT. You are loved.

[With that Harri steps down from the podium and wipes a tear from her eye.]

Oh, Hari, I thot of OT as wun ob da bestest boy-cats, a guy yoo cud run da ribber wif, as dey sey. Hee was a good bruther to Miss Pigglett and hee will allus be rememfurred.
