It has been two years since Onyx left us to make her journey to the Bridge. I can still see those huge green-gold eyes, always wide open, making her look as if she were perpetually surprised. I often see the same look on her sister Vicki's face.
Her brother Severian has taken over her favorite spot on the back of the family room couch. Sev was devoted to Onyx, and I think he still senses her there. Sometimes I reach back to touch his soft fur, as I used to do with her, and can hear her rumbling purr.
Onyx used to guard the food dish. Jasper does that now.
She loved to watch the squirrels on the deck (we teased her that the chubbiest one was her boyfriend) but Bear is in charge of squirrel-watching now.
We miss your physical presence every day, Onyx, and looking at your picture now brings tears. But it seems your spirit is still with us. Your family sends love.

What beautiful memories you have of your Onyx, she will always be with you all..
Sending lots of hugs
Funny how when one of us leaves the remaining cats shift places. Mom noticed that with us Olde Furts.
Wishing you a peaceful day at the bridge,Onyx and sending hugs to your mom who misses you very much.
Your angel pal,
Sounds like you've got some great memories of her.
It's strange, isn't it, how cats shift the hirarchy. But they do, and it's a good thing.
Purrs to you.
