Crossed the bridge today 2 Apr 2012

Tigger made her journey across the bridge a little after 2am this morning. It was a shock to say the least. She was fine last night. I've been up since midnight because I couldn't sleep. So, I went out to the kitchen and wiped the counters down, filled food and water bowls, etc. Then around 2:10 am, I came back to the bedroom and went to turn the light on. Tripped over a cat on the floor before finding the light...that kitty was Tigger. She was laid out on the floor. I picked her up, looked at her face and I knew she was gone by her eyes. Then she peed on my arm. So, I missed her last breath by less than a minute. She just had her 10th birthday on March 15th. I never expected her to die so soon...and without me holding her! She died alone. She was my first cat of my adult life and I've had her since she was 8 weeks old. My life won't be the same without her!

Everything was normal last night. She loved the shower stall and would sit in front of the door and meow at me to open the door so she could go inside. Last night was no different. When it came time for my shower, she just sat in there, so I turned the water on. She slowly mossied her way out and then sat in front of the door when I got in. I opened the door just after getting in, and Tigger walked back in, getting wet but she didn't care. I took her collar off and hung it on the shower curtain rod...where it still hangs. Then after my shower, she sat in the shower stall while I dried off. Then when I went to bed, Tigger was under the covers trying to stay warm. She was still wet, so I made sure she slept up against me to stay warm while she dried. When I woke up, she wasn't on the bed anymore. Not sure where she was. So last night while she was under the covers, that was the last time I saw Tigger alive. I just can't believe she's gone.

Tigger knows she was loved and I know she loved me. She was my first kitty and I still remember the day I found her at Petsmart. When I picked her up, she laid in my arm and just purred and purred. That's how she lived her life...usually right next to me, purring and purring and purring. I'd kiss her on her forehead and she'd would lick my forehead right between my eyes...that was her way of showing affection to me. I'm going to miss her so much!

God Speed my sweet Tigger! May you rest in peace. I hope you'll be waiting for me at the bridge and we'll be together again when it's my turn to cross that bridge. I love you, Tigger Tigger...always and forever my little girl!
