   Leave a treat for Pookie

Pookster, Pookmeister

August 1st 1992

Arrival Story:
Pookie was my daughter's cat, that has stayed with me, after my daughter moved away to have a family.

Pookie is very old. I have had her for a long time. She enjoys going outdoors, when it's warm, to sit in the garden. She is affectionate to me, but not so to other's. It takes her a long time to warm up to anyone. She has long hair,and it's getting gray. I love her, but have become slightly allergic to cat's, and my husband is very allergic, so she and another abandoned cat sleep in a room that is suited to their needs.

I've Been On Catster Since:
September 17th 2009 More than 7 years!

Pookie Went to Heaven

Pookie had been sick, and lost much of her weight. When I held her, she was so light. What a change, from the young fat kitty she had been. It was hard for her to eat, and keep anything down. I tried to keep her comfortable, with pain meds, and anti-emetics, but she hated to take them.
She was so quiet, and would sit. then she was restless. She talked to me, and I to her. Mitzi tried to help, but Pookie wanted no part of any kissing or cleaning from her sister, and she was scared of Chester. So I kept him away.
I brushed her, and told her I loved her. I thanked her for all of the years she gave to my little girl, as she grew into a woman. I thanked her for being here, after Sherry left me. I thanked her for being my kitty, and loving me.
I told her how sorry I was, that she was in pain, and apologized for being just a human.
I told her that my love was so inadequate, when measured next to what she had been to Betsy, and then to me, for her 21 years with us.
Then I fell asleep for just a few minutes.
When I awoke, she had stolen out into the quiet night, and her small body was cold.
I wrapped her in an embroidered pillowcase, and waited for the sun to come up, and prayed to St. Francis, that he would welcome my sweet kitty into heaven, and thanked God for allowing me to have her for so long,even though 21 years wasn't long enough, and allowed my tears to flow, freely.
We all miss you, Pookie.
We all love you.

Pookie is buried in my back yard. She is in the Cat's Cemetery, nextto her mother, Puffy. There are flowers on her grave, and we visit her daily.
