Brody was born on March 20th, 2007.  A black and white tuxedo Maine Coon.


He was a best friend, who also happened to be a cat.  He was very intelligent and emotionally aware of everyone he considered in his pack.  He would often listen to commands, like “C’mon Brody, let’s go in here” or “Hey, you wanna go outside?”.


He loved talking to you, he was a very communicative.  If he needed something, he always let you know.  He had a nightly routine, and a morning routine.  Both were generally a ritual dance to keep you from leaving the house, and to give him food before you went to sleep. 


He loved unconditionally, so much that if you left the house, he would start howling for you to come home or when he couldn’t find you in the house.  He always just wanted to be around you and hang out with the big cats (humans).  


We had some tough moments, but 99% of our journey together was good times and unconditional love.


Most cats have 9 lives, Brody had 11.  When he was 2 years old he was diagnosed with hypo-cardiomyopathy.  Where the two lower chambers of his heart were bigger than they were supposed to be.  The vet gave him a maximum of 2 years to live.  He was very bad at math…so it was not until 7 years later that he developed Congestive Heart Failure (CHF).  When they diagnosed CHF, they gave anywhere from 6 months to 2 years max.  He again, bad at math and very stubborn, ignored the doctors and was living well 4 years later.  He’s had other procedures in between to help extend his life and he’s had several ups and downs, but he always bounced back.


Sadly, on March 28th, 2020.  Brody went in for a procedure called a “chest tap”.   He had water building up around his lungs and needed to be drained so there wouldn’t be pressure on his lungs and other organs.  There was a complication during the procedure and he went into cardiac arrest.


He leaves behind his beloved family, Harry Caskey, Brian Coulter and his siblings Quimby and Jasper.


We miss him so much, and life is not the same without him.  His impact leaves a lifelong mark on all our hearts.
