It is with deepest sorrow, a heavy heart, and vision blurred by tears that I write this.
We were together from the day you were born in my bedroom, until the day you left this earth cuddled in my arms. My life was much brighter and fuller with you as a faithful companion for over 17 years.
It has been one long lonely year since you left for the rainbow bridge.
We miss you as much today as we did the day you left. The house is not the same without you. Our lives are not the same without you. You were such a good kitty and your companionship brightened every day. You had the greatest personality and loved to always be with us. I miss you sleeping with me and using me as your personal pillow. You were my travel buddy, you loved riding in the car. You and I drove over 20,000 miles together. I don’t think you realized the drive to the vet would be your last ride in the car, that you were not going to come home again.
Even though you never showed any signs of pain, in the very last pictures we took of you sitting on the picnic table next to the pumpkin, I could tell that you did not feel well. I wish it could have been different, but I know you were suffering as you had not eaten anything for almost a week by that time. I did not want to see you go, but I could not allow you to have you suffer any longer. Before you left, we asked you to send us signs to let us know you are at peace. We know there were 4 instances that you sent us to let us know you are close by and watching over us. We continue to look for signs that you send us. Rest in Peace my good friend, until we meet again.
