Mommy's Baby

Today is the third anniversary of our Admiral's passing.  I know mom loves her still.  Not even three years have made that love any less strong.  When Admiral guided Mom to me at the Vet rescue, she knew we were made for one another and she took care to have mom know that by having her preserved paw print given to mom the very moment she met ME.  It was her seal of approval.  We two, mom and me, melded together instantly.  It was love at first sight. Smoochies and air biscuits and real biscuits and purrs to match a chain saws when I was placed in mom's arms.

We are commemorating Admiral and mom's great love for her and a celebration of their bond.  Mom misses her so much but I fill that deepest sorrow with love.  That's the way it was meant to be.

Katie how can it be three years passed before our eyes. We know the ache still in your Mom's heart for Admiral, but we also know that Admiral led her to you to help heal that ache. We are so glad she did. Miss you Admiral. Smoochies to your Miss Katie.

We're sending lots of purrs and hugs your way. Our mommy's eyes are leaky for Admiral and Sadie but we know they are together and are just fine.

Purrs to your human today, Katie. My human still misses the cat before Sparkle, who has been gone for almost 13 years. She will always love her best - even though she loved Sparkle, and loves me dearly, and that is just the way things are.

We will never ever forget Admiral, and we will love her always. We are so thankful that she brought you and Mommy together. Yes, this was truly meant to be.

Hugs and purrs to you both.

It's perfect, Katie. And I know the Admiral is watching over you both. Kissies.

I know what this is like. Your story is so moving. I am glad you fill the sorrow with love, Katie. I understand how the loss of a beloved pet can leave a hole that always hurts.

Blessings & peace to you!


I wish I had more time to blog and comment. I will be trying to carve out more time for this in my schedule coming up. I so love my connections with you and others here!

Those bonds are never broken. We love that you forged a new one with your Mommy. Admiral definitely had a "paw" in that!

I think Admiral lives in your belly. Mom's old dog, Smoki lives in my belly. She helped Mom find me and now she helps me be a good girl by living in my belly. Mom kisses her a lot. Don't be surprised if your mom kisses your belly today!

Love and licks and belly kisses,
Cupcake

What a lovely post Katie....you're right of course that Admiral led your Mom to you.....it's what we do for our humans - make sure the hole in their heart is filled back up with love ASAP. Sending you hugs as you remember Admiral.....

Love, Sammy

This makes us cry. I believe that each critter comes to us with a purpose, and stays with us forever. I also believe when they leave us, they send us who we need at just the right time. Ours thoughts and love are with you. Hugs.

Admiral was such a lovely lady cat and we still miss her but if she hadn't gone to the bridge we wouldn't have had the pleasure of meeting you Katie.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Katie, that's exactly how we got Peppers. When Torrie went to the Bridge, she led MomKatt to PetSmart and there was Peppers. He was of course a big kitty, like he is now, and they had him in the biggest cage they had, but MomKatt could tell right off that he was miserable and she worried that, confined there much longer, he'd get grouchy and unhappy enough to maybe bite someone. She fell in love with him & told DadKatt Torrie wanted them to take Peppers home - so they did! But like your meowm w/Admiral, MomKatt still mourns Torrie and really can't look at any of her pictures very long. They just tear her to pieces, even after all this time. It was so unfair she got out of PetSmart after MomKatt had been wanting her for so long, only to have heartworms kill her while MomKatt was at work.

Anyway, didn't mean to be such a downer. Admiral was beautiful and both stories show how, when a beloved pet starts their 10th life, there is another pet needing love, just waiting for you to be led to him/her. It's a mark of how much your meowm loved Admiral that she took you to her heart & you both dwell there now.

Love you guys ...
Selina

A beautiful story of two wonderful kitties!

Sweetie, M and I have leaky eyes here today in reading your post and Admiral's bloggy. It's so touching and loving, which is how you, Admiral and mom are. We're so happy Admiral guided mom to you because you were just what mom needed then - someone new to pour her heart and soul into. Losing Admiral was so very decastating for her. She will always love and miss Admiral, but you being there helps her bear the loss.

Time doesn't make the love we have any less it just makes the pain less intense
