‘Chip’ Barnes (3/1/2002 – 1/2/2016)
Chip lived to love us and to be loved on. From the day I adopted him at Collier County Animal Shelter until the end of his life, his ‘purr box’ was never silent. He waited for me to come home from work and was my constant faithful companion around the house. He would come running if he thought we were hurt or if he thought Mimi, his sister, was in trouble. He was my best friend and my bed buddy, and he was my feline son. He was larger than life, full of love and devotion. He truly was a one of a kind kitty. Forever in our hearts.
