It has been almost a year since that day mom came home to find that I had recently departed for the bridge. Today as she lay on the bed chatting with dad , she said "Ivey loved me so much" "and she deserved so much more from this life than she was dealt, she was a good kitty and so loved people" then dad said "yes she was a good cat I was thinking of her just today" IT still makes mom's eyes get water to think of how grateful I was to her and dad for making the last six months of my life on earth so wonderful. I must have once known the love of humans before mom and dad and even after all the misery I lived through on the streets I never stopped trusting them and I showed my love to mom like none of the other kitties there do. I knew when she was sad and needed me I knew when she was happy and I always was with her never wanted to leave her side. In 2011 the vet told mom I was about 3 or 4 years old. Skids left for RB in 2008 so if I was only 3 in 2011 I might have been born the year skids died and maybe it just took a while for me to find mom....just a thought mom has had several times. Probably because the way I loved her was much like the way skids grew to love her over a 20 year period. It was like I picked up right were skids left off but the years on the street must have taken it's toll on my tiny body so I was only allowed a short time with mom.....oh well it truly is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.
So true...some love is evfur so much better than none...and fur a street kitty, 6 months is a long time, actually, because they so live from day to day.
I've had about 6 months in my home now after years of living at da apartment complex where I was abandoned - those months mean a lot to me and I know they did to you too.
I had no idea you were so young. As you know, your Mommie needed you to fill that hole in her heart and that's exactly what you did. In return, a hole in your heart was filled with love. The perfect relationship.
This reminds of so much of Mom and Joes relationship. She got him the night before his DDay at the shelter and they were inseparable. She had him 3 years before he went to the bridge. He also had an unexpected tragic death. Everybody reminded her she gave him life....a great life, full of love and warmth.
daddy understands that pain all too well. i was just shy of 5 when i left, and was his soul kitty.
just look at the others. ivey, skids and boo are guiding them,
we are sending extra purrs your way
Fly free beautiful Ivey, I'm sending double purrs to your family, I know they miss you, but they showed you so much love, they still do, you'll always live because of all that love.
My mum knows that pain too. Not a day has gone by since I went to the Bridge has she not thought about me. She doesn't cry every day but she only needs to hear something about another kitty and it sets her off all over again. She loves Buzz and Boo but she would still love me to be with her.
We had such a short time together but I know that both my pawrents loved me more than anyone else could have and made my short life on Earth very spwacial.
Ivey too had the very best of love even though it too was short.
Just like I had such a short time with my family but we were both truly loved and blessed with the time we had with them.
Mum says she can't believe how long it is since she visited your page because she hasn't read this before, but it made her cry all over again.
