Furry Memories On Monday

MeOW and welcome to a memory filled Monday. That’s right, today all across the blogosphere we’re takin’ a moment to ‘member those that have left this earthly realm. We know you might have come here today fur our Service Cat Monday posty, and we hope you’ll join us next Monday when we’ll pick up where we last left off. But, today is a very special day; and havin’ lost a great luv, we decided to take part in Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. Altho’ we don’t believe in this Rainbow Bridge, we do believe in heaven, and that our luvved ones move on to a better place when they leave us.

Our furst memory today is of sis Lexi, mommy’s beluvved Service Cat and me’s much luvved sisfur. We miss her somethin’ fierce and hate that she had to go. Fur 17 years sis Lexi never left mommy’s side. Fur seven of those years, she was the bestest sisfur this girly could have ever asked fur. Sis Lexi was an Alpha cat from the minute she was born. Even tho’ she was the boss, she was almost always gentle ‘bout puttin’ me in me’s place. A lot of peeps only saw a black tabby cat when they looked at her. But to mommy and me, she was the most bootyful soul that ever lived. Even in her last days, she remained the majestic Empress and dutiful Service Cat. She could barely stand on her own four paws, but each day she was there to help mommy get her day started and end her days with luvvin’ massages. We will never unnerstand why she had to leave us; but, we’ll always ‘member her with a smile and luv in our hearts.

     We will at that sweet Dezi. Some days are better than others, but there will always be a hole in my heart that belonged to my beautiful Lexi. Good night my love, we will meet again. Lexi and I had known loss. Too much if you ask me, but God knows things I don’t. Even knowing that I would have to lose my precious fur babies, I wouldn’t have wanted to live my life without them. Before Dezi joined our family, Lexi and I had 5 great years with the very handsome Ragamuffin, Ransom. Bless his heart, he was all boy, all the time. He broke his leg when he was about 6 months old being rambunctious and throwing caution to the wind in his play. Just as his leg healed, he developed a severe UTI and his heart murmur got worse. He held on and fought to live four more years before leaving us for heaven. A piece of my heart will always belong to that fluffy little black kitty boy.

Lucky and Lexi enjoyed their window perches. They laid side by

side for hours, daily.

 

 

     Before Ransom, there was Lucky, Lucky Luciano to be accurate. Altho’ named after a mobster, Lucky was the sweetest, most good natured Siamese I’d ever known. Born exactly 28 days before Lexi, they had grown up together and had a bond that almost killed her when he left. He was a gentle giant that loved spending time with me and his sisfur. He and Lexi were the first Service Cats to learn to drive the wheelchair. Nothing scared him. He was adventurous and giving. He regularly stepped back and let the gluttonous Lexi, who had scarfed down her meal, take his. He knew there would always be more. That mommy would always make sure he had plenty and never went hungry. He developed a sudden UTI that had him completely blocked. Unfortunately, my ignorance and lack of money cost him his life. I so miss his curious little apple headed face poking around the corner to spy on me. His journey to heaven left Lexi and me lost for years. When Lucky left, he took a big chunk of our hearts with him. I like to believe Lexi and Lucky are together again, waiting for me to join them in the happy hereafter.

 

 

Devon and Lucky

     Devon, a boxy Himilayan, was an only cat when I decided to start fostering kittens for the rescue group that brought me Lucky and Lexi. He was such a good natured laid back boy, that he took it all in stride. He was a great Service Cat, and even liked to play daddy to the kittens I brought in. We fostered motherless kittens. Even when they would yell all night and keep us awake for weeks at a time, he would still coddle and bathe them and teach them how to be a cat. A brain tumor took him away much too young. Every time I see a kitty curled up in a sink, I smile and remember my sweet Himi boy. Altho’ he is missed, I’m grateful he’s no longer in pain and confused.

Shad, the original Service Cat

 

 

     I end my memories today with my faithful Shad, my first Service Cat. She was the original, and there will never be another like her. She and I had a hard life, but a life filled with love and devotion. It was her love and devotion for me that caused her to take action and train herself to help me after my accident. She was remarkable, silly, and her love knew no bounds. Whether we lived in our car or had a home with rooms and stability, she was happiest just being with me. She brought me thru some of the worst times in my life and taught me to love and trust again. She will always be missed. Again, at five years old, she was taken from this world far too soon. But, her legacy lives on in each cat that came after her. Good Night my sweet babies, we will be together again. And until that day, your love pushes me onward and fills our home. You will forever be remembered.

  • Thank you so much for sharing the memories of all your kitties, Miss Audra. You were a momma to so many & I’m sure they are watching over you & miss you very much! My mom thinks of the kitties that came before me always, too. She has pictures of them on her dresser & bedroom walls. They are so much a part of her. She had two kitties that lived long lives like your Lexi, but then another that was taken way too young as your Devon was. Mom is just grateful for the time she did have with them all. Purrs, hugs & luvs!

  • Thank you so much for being a part of Rainbow Bridge Remembrance Day. We don’t know if a Rainbow Bridge exists either, but we do believe in the concept of a better place and hope our pets fly free and that we may be united again one day. Purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey gang

  • It’s truly unfair that we have them for so little time … though they impact us for a lifetime. Your post does a fabulous job of demonstrating that. I sense so much pain in your writing … but also hope. I don’t know how, but cats have a way of giving us hope – in addition to all the things they teach us. Loving Kitty (and her love for me) made me a better person and a better Mom to Bear. Loving Bear (and his love for me) made me a better person and a better Mom to Ellie. In that way, they are ALWAYS with us.

    • Yes, it’s terribly unfair, but I wouldn’t want to imagine my life without them. Each one taught me something more and gave me their total trust and unconditional love. I so like to think they are all together again, playing and having a great time. I miss them terribly, but I prray, they have no knowledge of my pain. And someday, we will all be reunited to share our love once more. Sendin’ big hugs fur all of you.

      Love,

      mommy A

  • What beautiful, loving fur kids you have had and loved. You must feel very grateful to have had these sweet babies to love and that totally loved you back. I know I would never have given up those special moments with my past kitties even though I ended up with heartache when they crossed the bridge (which I believe IS the stairway to heaven and is no disrespect of God or heaven) I would never have given up the joy they brought to my life.

    I hope your two girls are feeling better after yesterday. Love you all. Miss Julia, Angel Izzy and now my Princess Patzy (who is rambunctious as all get-out as only a young tortie/tuxedo cat can be).

  • Such precious memories to hold close in the heart. I never knew the others but Lexi. I miss her FB posts so much. They all may be gone from sight but they are always with you in memories and your hearts.
    Love and hugs to you all.
