Every once in a while we get an email at TUAW that tugs at our hearts, and today's Caturday entry certainly did that. Here's Pip's story, directly from the keyboard of one of her parents:
Our beloved cat that was only 5 years old just died today unexpectedly. Me (Dustin) and my partner (Ian) are completely devastated and heartbroken. Her name is Pip and she had a heart defect and today her heart suddenly stopped. She was such a special feline and there will never be another cat like her. In addition to her love for chasing lasers and stealing potato chips right out of your hand, she also loved soaking up the warmth of her Apple products, in particular my Time Capsule and also my MacBook. Please consider our beautiful girl Pip for your Caturday article this week as a memoriam to her.
We'd love to see photos of your favorite feline soaking up the warmth of an Apple product, chasing a Magic Mouse, or just being a general nuisance while you're attempting to work on your Mac, iPad, or iPhone. Please let us know via our feedback page and please remember that your cat photo has to have some sort of connection to Apple or its products. For security reasons we can't accept inbound attachments, so you should host the photo (Dropbox, Flickr, iPhoto Journals, etc.) and send us the link.
Many thanks and our condolences go out to reader Dustin Hawkins for sharing the photos and back story of Pip with us.
