Today is Nemo's Gotchaversary. It's Sunday. It was also a Sunday when we picked up Nemo from Vancouver SPCA.
Tonight we took Nemo for a walk nearby by the river and near a train track, where he accompanied us on the leash a few times before. We spread some of his ashes at a spot where he stood tall in front of me, hissing and trying to protect me from a barking dog. I still remember that day when that totally harmless dog approached us, barking with excitement. I picked Nemo up right away when I saw the dog approached. I held him in my arm tightly while the dog stood wagging his tail, wanting to play. All of a sudden Nemo squirmed out of my hold and jumped onto the ground. Instead of running away to hide, he stood between me and the dog and started hissing viciously at him. That's our Nemo. He didn't back down from any situation. He protected everyone he loved.
I think of Nemo all the time. I thank him for coming to us and changing our life. I thank him for bringing TinTin to us. He knew we needed a cat exactly like TinTin after he's gone.
I know Nemo is out there helping other people. I thank him everyday for gracing the world.

Dearest Nemo, I will never forget you. You were the most wonderful kitty and the most wonderful friend. I am happy your "staff" are letting you rest in the places you loved. You were truly one of a kind. Thank you, Nemo, for being my friend.
Thinking about Nemo. I always loved your photos, the snow on the beach look stunning. You lived a great life for a kitty. Many purrs on this day. I didn't see a post from me I'm sorry as I know I read your lovely post back in Dec. Many purrs from us.
