My big soft bear (otherwise known as Casper) was hit by a car yesterday - he was only a year old! He was supposed to be my hubby's cat but he never left me alone :o). He would jump up when I wasn't expecting him, he would cry outside our bedroom window at night (we live in a bungalow) until we let him in then he would curl up right next to me on the bed until I got up in the morning. He would try and pinch my breakfast, or sit there, rather impatiently waiting until I had finished so he could have the last drip of milk. He was so laid back he was almost horizontal! He was my big soft bear.
