I miss seeing you in the mornings. I miss stepping over you, all sprawled out, on the stairs.
I miss how you scratched at the back door to let me know that Sophie was ready to come inside. And anytime I was petting Sophie, you joined right in on the loving (and vice versa).
I miss hearing you meow while I am on the computer, right before you jumped up into my lap. I miss your little paw tapping me on the shoulder when you wanted extra attention.
I miss that silly clicking sound you made when you were watching birds fly by the window. I miss seeing you all sprawled out on the back of the couch- I keep finding myself reaching to pet you- you were always so close by.
When the next thunderstorm comes, I'll miss seeing you bravely watch the rain from the window seat (while Sophie and Lucy hide!).
And even though it happened so rarely, I miss seeing you and Lucy cuddle together and groom each other.
I miss how you would wait around the corner when I opened a can of wet food and then meow until I brought your plate to you. And how you would eat yours and wait patiently until Lucy was done and then finish hers, too. And the funny thing is, Lucy misses that too. She looked for you the other day- first when I got the food out and then when she was done eating. She's really been missing you.
I miss how you would sometimes swipe Sophie's food and bat it around the house. Sometimes you would eat a little bit of it, but usually it ended up rolling out of your reach, under a door or the dryer.
I miss your purrs. And your kneading. And cuddling with you. And how sweet it was when you would lay on me and press your forehead on my cheek! I loved how anytime a blanket was brought out or clothes or a towel were left on the floor, you were there within moments, lounging on top of it.
I miss catching you opening drawers and cabinets- you always looked so cute standing on your back legs! And you were so smart. A genius, really. And so beautiful. And so sweet.
I miss your beautiful blue eyes. And your sweet little white paws.
I miss everything about you. I loved you so much and I can't believe you are no longer here. I miss you, Sophie misses you, and Lucy misses you. I keep expecting to see you in all of your favorite places. And although you were a quiet cat, the house just seems so (too) quiet without you.
