It’s a sad day here in the ApronStrings household. We just found out that one of our cat-nieces passed away today at the age of 19.
Mocha was an adorable kitty who absolutely loved to play fetch with you. You could crumple up a small piece of paper and throw it across the room … and she’d find it and bring it back to you.
She’d been my brother’s cat throughout the years of grad school and med school; keeping my brother company as he moved around. And although she didn’t love the fact that there was a new “woman” in Dr. Bro’s life … she learned to live with Dr. SIL all the same. And then she learned to live with a new sister-kitty, Sophia … and eventually “tolerated” her two younger (but definitely bigger) greyhound brothers.
Despite all these changes, Mocha remained a feisty cat. She never loved to be carried (except by Dr. Bro, of course) but loved to paw at you while sitting next to her. And even though I won’t miss being scratched at or bitten when attempting to pet her during one of her “moods”, I will miss her dearly.
RIP, Mocha girl … you’ll be missed a latte!

We lost our cat yesterday too – the second in under a year. They were 12 and 18 respectively and both got very sick veery suddenly. It is strange to be in a house with no pets.
Very sad to hear of a kitty’s passing. RIP Mocha 🙁 She was a very pretty kitty.
So sorry Em and Dr. Bro!
What a pretty cat – RIP, little Mocha.
Aww. RIP, Mocha! What a sweet face she had! But wow– 19 years is a wonderfully long life for a kitty!
I wouldn’t say Mocha was sweet, but she was totally lovable. I remember her chasing down crumpled paper and then when you picked her up she would bite you in a loving way, but sometimes she got overzealous and would clamp down and clutch you with her paws as well. God bless Mocha you’ll be missed and remembered fondly.
