I was coming to thank everyone for the extraordinary outpouring of love and support.
An email popped in. A notification from catster.
My Ollie is COTW!
I will admit to hoping that all my babies would be chosen but having had two already (Wally and Alfie) I really didn't think it would happen. That it's happening now~it's bittersweet.
It's difficult for me to feel joy. And I simply cannot channel Ollie.
Thank you, HQ for honoring my beloved boy.
Today I wanted to post a beautiful poem that Orange Ruffy wrote for my Ollie
He's a sure charmer
Sure born to steal
To dance upon magick
To show us what's real
A feline named Ollie
With tangerine coat
A lively little fellow
Who'd sure get my vote
He's a thief of heart
You know it's so true
Ollie's the man
He's orange true blue
He's got a stout heart
That will never give out
Just beats somewhere else now
I know without doubt
Ollie's mom sure loves him,
She needs our purrs
And lots of kitty kisses
From all us furs
For Ollie in midleap
Left his body behind
He leaped light fanstastic
Onwward to find
Perhaps another miracle for a kitty friend here
Ollie knew what he was doing-though for us it isnt' clear
And his mom needs love, for she's missing him so,
Hurting as she wasn't ready, no, for him to go
But Ollie, surely you know, my bright orange friend
That you will be back soon, for it's not 'the end'
Can you give a shout out, wait a minute there
Come on now little man, you know it's not fair!
And I watched as my Alex, Guardian at Rainbow Bridge
Came carrying our Ollie, by scruff cross the Ridge
and deposited him just outside the window sill
Said 'here he is Ruffy, say what you will!'
So I said 'Hey, now Ollie, whats this about?
Why'd you dash off without a shout out?
Your mom is so sad, she's grieving for you
It's not fair now Ollie, what you're putting her through.
And Ollie sat up and glanced at Alex there
'I dodn't mean to hurt her, I love her-I care!
I love my Mom, we are soul mates you know-
But you know Ruffy-when we're called-we go!
I am a little guy-not too soul wise
But I know Mom loves me, and my heart can't lie
I heard the call-of the Source to me
And my heart just took wing, Ruffy...I'm Free!'
Then he stood up on his hinds and he touched noses to me
'Tell my mom Ruffy, it's with her I'll be...
I'll return before she knows it-with a ticker that's good
I promise you Ruffy-it's understood.
I purred a deep rumble, he shimmered and leapt
Straight up in the air to where the stars still slept
As the sun rose on the horizon he came back to stand
A small orange tabby with many a plan
Tell Mom I love her-I'll tell her too
For here now I'm whole now, I don't want her blue
She's my best buddy, a Mom still to me
Forever my soul mate, forever to be
A Mom, who understands we have more than nine lives
Tell her I'm not far, but I know she'll realize
And Alex swatted me with her soft angel wing
It's time we get back, I'll take care of things
Just tell me, Ruffy, this before we go...
Can I let him send magick, for his mom, you know?
And I looked up at the sky, turning indigo to blue
Said 'Ollie you're magick and it's up to you.'
And he backed up and tensed mucles, leapt straight up again
Called back "I'm on it, Ruffy-thanks for being a friend'
Ollies Mom, be comforted-I understand your grief
It's hard when you have been touched and chosen by a Thief
But I have this feeling, I sense it with my all
That sooner than later....you'll recognize that call.
Ollie my friend, I purr for your mom
Sending her kindess, telling her 'be strong'
We know shes a miracle, and chosen still by you
That Thief of Hearts will return anew.
Thank you so much.
I can't stop weeping.

791 days. That's all the time I was given with my precious Ollie.
I have been struggling for weeks to let you know.
My Ollie is dead.
How can it be? He had just turned 2 years old!
I can see the shock on your faces. I can see tears fill your eyes. I didn't want to be the cause unhappiness here.
I feel I used up my share a long time ago.
So I was just going to disappear.
But I couldn't do that either.
You are family. I have grown to love you and your kits as if you were my own family and your kits my own;
I almost can't do this.....
If you love my Ollie would you do one thing for us, please?
Don't give him any candles, don't give him angel stars. Most of all no wings.
I can't bear to picture him with wings!!!
Just a little red heart for my little thief of hearts.
He stole mine and took it with him.
And I am so broken.
Milo and TB are also struggling as is my dad.
I promise I will be back soon to tell you more about what happened.
Please love us?
Forever Ollie's mommy, Eva

Two years ago today, mom and I found each other. She was not in a good place. My whole family was sad. Grandpa, Milo and Teddy all
missed Alfie. Mom had a hurt heart that only a kitten could help mend. So she came to the SPCA
Yes, she was looking for an orange boy, not because Alfie could be replaced but she thinks orange kitties are special.
I had just arrived at the SPCA that morning. I was not a happy camper. I had never been in a cage before. My two sisters were with me
and they were so scared. I said to them, watch me get out of here.
When I heard the voice of the lady who would be my momma in five minutes or so~ my kitty ESP kicked in.
She was the one! I just knew it. So I climbed the cage door and started yelling. Everyone else was very quiet so naturally mom looked at
who was making the noise. I heard her say to her friend, Oh look, I see orange! The closer she came the more excited I got.
Please, oh please get me out of here. Before I knew it the door was opened and I flew into the arms of my momma to be. I stopped screaming
and started purring. She tried to look at my face but I clung on. I was worried she wanted to put me down. She laughed and managed to
extricate my kitten claws from her clothes. We were face to face. She smiled and said hello little guy! Are you mine? And she kissed the
tip of my pink nose. I licked hers.Faster than you could say MEOW~ We had a deal. We would love each other for the rest of our days!
More happy mews:
Do you guys remember Wild Child
the sweet kitty from Best Friends, mom sponsored last December to honor our Wally?
She got an email last night from Best Friends. Wild Child is happy in her new forever home in Arizona!
You may have notice the we are away sign beside our names, mom had been furry sick and she needs time to recuperate.
My bros and I are taking care of her. Don't worry about us, OK?
Grandpa is still doing better than expected. So that is also happy mews.
We love you~
Ollie and momma
