Goodbye to the Sweetest Furriest Friend


A few days ago my sweet little kitty passed away from complications of pneumonia. He was almost 18 years old and he was loved by me and my family for almost 9 of those years. I’ll miss Kitty’s whiskered face looking up eagerly at me when I cook with meat demanding to have a taste. I’ll also miss him gently following me throughout the backyard when I plant my flowers. When I see birds flying around, I’ll miss kitty chasing them and getting frustrated at not being able to catch them. Kitty will be missed every time I go to the kitchen and see the empty spot where stray kibbles were spread around his food bowl. I’ll miss kitty drinking water from the money plant container because he liked flavor infused water. It will be sad to not see kitty sleeping on his favourite corner of the bed or sneaking into laundry baskets. But most of all, I’ll miss kitty every time I need to smush something furry, warm and loving just because he was furry, warm and loving. RIP little kitty – we were lucky to have such a sweet, loving, friendly and gentle creature in our lives. You are loved a whole lot and now you'll be missed a whole lot ;(

He was the love of my life. Life is already empty without him. I hope he knew how much he was loved, and that I loved him beyond words.

I"m sorry.

Pets are wonderful, regardless of species (I like dogs, myself).

They give us so much.

It is always sad when a member of the family is lost. My condolences. He seems to have lived a good, full life. Hold on tight to the memories.

I am so sorry too. I really love my little dogie and can not even begin to imagine the pain of the day when she would go away.
I am sending you cuddles.

So sorry to hear that. I worry about how I am going to handle it when my dog dies.

Holly said...

I'm sorry to hear about your cat! I have lost a few cats over the years and they're all as heart breaking as the last. They each have such wonderful personalities, none alike. I hope another furry friend comes into your life to give you company, but none will replace the one lost.

Huney bunny was the best mexican jungle cat ever. I love the pic of him in your laundry hamper. Come and eat your sorrows away anytime. Hugs<3
