An Angelversary Today

Kitties and Woofies, my Angel Admiral left me for the Bridge on this day of December 14th, 2011.

It is still just as hard to not have that precious face to kiss and that dear little body to hold as it was when I returned home without her that day...one of the worst days I suffered save when Robin passed away.  I recall I did not bother to wipe my eyes for the tears fell like rain from first waking moment to last.  My shirts were damp.

 They are precious to us.  Their innocence, purity and love are like the veriest richest treasures we have been given, along with our human family.  Our fur kids are family too and their love is a never ending gift.   I have equally precious Katie Isabella chosen by Admiral to comfort me ever after.  What love I have to hold.

Admiral, Lady Bianca, I miss you so much.  I will always and forever love your memory.

We send hugs and purrs and headbonks to comfort you, as you remember the beautiful Admiral, who waits for the day you will be together once more. She was a Furry Special Cat.

Sending you a warm hug.....I certainly know the feeling and knowing that they are ALWAYS in our hearts and we ALWAYS feel them there helps a little - but not quite the same as having them in our laps, brushing their furs, and seeing their eyes look into ours with LOVE.

Hugs, Pam

They never live long enough, ever. And, I never get over their loss. They take a piece of me with them, and leave a critter shaped hole behind. ❤

Five years already...Hugs and purrs to you, Carole. It will be 10 for Chumley in January and six for Annie in February. McGuffy Ann is right, they never live long enough and we don't ever "get over" the loss. We just become accustomed to the absence.

Peace to you. ♥

Sounds like you have big shoes to fill, KI. Mom's old dog, Smoki also sent me to her to help her sadness when she left for the bridge. Smoki lives in my belly now, so Mom can still kiss her while she is kissing me.

Love and licks,
Cupcake

We miss them so. It never leaves us, the sadness and pain lessen, but the absence of the heart always remains. ((Hugs))

I know the horrible feeling. Love is love, regardless of the species to which we give it, or from which it comes.

We loved Admiral a lot. She was a wonderful LadyCat who was well- loved for all her life. We think each kitty has something to teach his or her Human about how to love and care for us, and so when the next one comes along, the Human is even better at being a loving companion and that's the legacy one kitty leaves for the Ones Who Come After. We think Admiral did a pretty great job with your Mommy and you are teaching her even more in your turn, too. XOXOXOXO

Mariodacat said...

Sending you a big HUG. Admiral was special, as is Katie. If only we could keep our furbabies around longer! But that would be the perfect world and not going to happen. I'm so happy precious Katie was sent to you by Admiral, and I truly believe she was. Admiral will always live in our hearts, and I know she will in yours also.

Dear Admiral, what a beloved girl she was, and we know there is a hole in your heart for her. Admiral saw to it that you got one of the most precious kitties in Katie, and for that, we are so thankful. Purrs and love from Mom and me.

My dear Lady...M knows you were inconsolable. The Admiral touched our lives is ways that will always be remembered. My boy Nik fell for her right away. We were all happy when she finally said, "Yes." Now they are together forever. ♥
