Remembering Kim Jong Meow (October 1, 2012 - July 3, 2014)

I am sad to report the passing of my beloved Kim Jong Meow Taylor Larkin from sudden kidney failure. It was reported that there was no suffering and he went peacefully. He is survived by his brother Purrba the Hutt and co-owners Carl and Topher and was loved by all. He will be buried in Reston, VA.

Topher Larkin's publicist has released the following statement:

"A seal point Siamese, Kim Jong Meow was adopted on January 2013 in Tampa Florida from Cat Lovers Inc along side with his adopted brother Purrba the Hutt.

Meow was never fond of car rides and would sing/howl along for hours to fill time before passing comfortably asleep. He had a fondness for napping in the most awkward spots on his owner's bodies and playing with leftover stalks of kale. He loved his kitty treats, playing with his spring toys, purring loudly at the touch of a finger, above all fitting and sitting in boxes at any given moment.

Affectionately Kim Jong Meow's full title was "Mega Ultra Elite Sweetness Supreme" but he was okay with just Meow. He was always proud to show off his hunting skills, whether it be a fly, a bird, leaf, or once again, a leftover kale stalk.

Unfortunately, I was not around at the time of passing since he was with Carl for the summer as we agreed we would share custody of the cats due to our consciously uncoupling. The diagnosis was quick and sudden and Carl stayed with him until the very end. The vet's made a paw print mold for us and Carl will give me Meow's collar when he returns in August. It was reported that the vet's said the only happiest part of their day was finding out his name was Kim Jong Meow."

I will miss the way he would try to meow - this little mixture of a squeak and stutter. I will miss how he would find the worst possible spot to curl up on you but you forgave him, because he really was the Mega Ultra Elite Sweetness Supreme. And I will miss those magical blue eyes of his that would stare up lovingly at you - eyes that could cheer you up after a hard day, encourage you to get out of bed and start the day with a positive outlook, help you drift off to a peaceful night sleep, and even help you heal after a painful breakup.

He will always be a memory of a happy, loving time.
