Our baby girl Angel passed away on March 1, 2010. She found us on our sidewalk on September 2000. Something had me look out our front window, and I saw her. My wife and I went out to her. When we got to her she perked up as much as her exhausted body could and she let out a tiny meow. She was about 6 months old and only weighed one pound. The vet didn't think she was going to make it past a few months. A few months turned into a few years, which turned into 10 years.
Angel was the sweetest cat my wife Renee and I have ever had. She didn't roam at night like our other cats; she stayed right in bed with us all night. When my wife would go to bed early Angel would be right there next to her. Then if I came to bed a little later, she would jump down and greet me. She would follow me to get ready for bed and then jump right up and curl up next to my head. Her love was unconditional. She loved rubbing her nose on my finger, using my finger to wash her face. She loved jumping on the counter in the bathroom when we were trying to get ready to go somewhere and rub on us. We will miss her little head butts on us and the sound of her little head butt on the door when we were about to walk in the room with her. We loved her so much. On March 1 at about 9:00 PM I walked out of the kitchen and saw her lying on the couch. She looked up at me like she always did. I walked back into the kitchen. Not more than 15 seconds later my wife and I heard a thump. I walked back in the room to check on her and Angel was on the floor and she was gone. We attempted to resuscitate her but she was gone quick. We just wish we could have seen how she ended up on the floor, not that it really matters, but one minute she was fine the next she was gone. We are so heartbroken. We have a photo of her and a candle in front which we light at 9PM. We take her picture and put it next to our bed when we go to bed so she can be where she loved to be at night. Of course the grief, the questions why, what could we have done, and could we have cared for her better, have kept us very sad and keep running through our minds.
We love you Angel and you are always in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.
