Severus was a true king at heart. Majestic and dignified, he had the kindest soul and was a gentlemen to the end.
He loved to hold court from “his” recliner, especially when we had visitors, but at night he turned into a puppy that just wanted to be cuddled.
He was a smart boy who had endured very bad times. Even so, he was always ready to reward kind treatment with his full-blown smile.
