One of the special cats in my life made her way to kitty heaven last week. She was my favorite cat growing up. She was actually my neighbor/cousins cat. But I treated her as my own.
She would spend the nights with me when I lived at my parents house. I swear, that cat could hold her "business" for hours and hours, just to stay in when it was cold!
In the last few years she had been failing. I would buy her cans, since she didn't have any teeth, and couldn't eat the dry food. She also lost a lot of her fur- like big patches at a time.
It's somewhat of a relief now that she is gone. Not because I didn't want to deal with her anymore, more of the fact that I don't have to wonder if she is okay, especially in this cold weather.
She'll always be my favorite cat no matter what- shh! don't tell Mose! :)
Just thankful for the good memories of her!
I have had this "framed" (using a blue mason jar) in my house for a couple of years now. I love it. I'm holding Speedy as a kitten, and Malinda is holding Cuddles, her sister.
The picture even made it on Tyler's birth announcement!
The last pictures of her... New Years Eve..
Showing Speedy his orange!
"What do you see, Speedy?"
Speedy doesn't like all the attention :)
Tyler hasn't asked about Speedy yet, and I don't think he will. Even if he did I would just tell him that she isn't up (on the deck).
But I'm afraid that when Mose passes, it's going to be a crisis! Mose will just be outside -like this morning for example- he was asking where Mose was, and he was just outside!
I'm sure some people that are reading this are thinking that I'm insane. And all I have to say to that is that I love my cats more than I like most people, no kidding. They are like family to me!
You'll be forever missed, Speedy!
