I will never forget you~ My favorite animal

 I will never forget October 1, 1982 or February 25, 2004. These are the dates that my precious Momma Kitty entered and left my life. She was the most special fur baby and companion I ever had. She was with me through thick and thin- through some wonderful ife experiences and some pretty awful ones- she was always by my side with a snuggle and a purr.

I loved how she used to sleep curled up against my neck and heaven forbid, I have a yogurt to myself! It was the only people food she liked but boy if I opened one it was like most cats that hear the can opener. She'd bolt for my lap and try to stick her paw in the cup to pull it to her. I guess she could smell it in the air. So here I'd sit, a spoonful for me, a spoonful for her..and so on.    

I used to say she was living out her 9 lives because she had some strange accidents, like the time she broker her tail in the fence and it had to be amputated.

The year she passed was also the year we had 3 major hurricanes hit here within 6 weeks.  A traumatic year to say the least. My son was in 1st grade and I remember that day, she looked so bad and I could see she was struggling. I took my son to school and then loved on her and held her in my arms. I took her to the cat hospital but she didn't quite make it.  I am glad her last memory was a loving one.

When I picked my son up from school that day, I told him. He looked at me so sweetly and said "Don't worry Mom, she's in kitty heaven right now, playing with toys and chasing lizards. Got to love that boy of mine!!

Who was your most special pet?

What a very touching tribute to a very special animal. Love the pages you've scrapbooked for her too.

Thank you for sharing this lovely time of yours with us. I absolutely love cats and their personalities.
But boy, does one get attatched to them. Our old lady pus is the head of our household and runs it with a very firm paw. And does she let us know if something is below par..... yep :-)

Thank you Rita and Birgitte!
Yes, they certainly do become a large part of our hearts, don't they?

So glad you were able to be with her in the end. I hate it when animals you love just go missing and you never know what happened. I still tell my daughter that Junior kitty found a new home with better cat food.

Awe, Thank you Cory!
We had a dog like that when I was a kid. He had been with us about 15 years when he disappeared. He was blind and diabetic and he got outside somehow. We looked and looked for him but never found him. It was heart breaking.
