Been (pronounced Ben), Fatboy, Mama's Boy

Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:
-cat rescue

May 21st 2006


Been liked to exercise (aka stretch)

He wouldn't tolerate his food dish being empty, and he insisted his water be cold and fresh.

Favorite Toy:
His favorite toy was my James Avery cross on my necklace.

Favorite Nap Spot:
He napped on his 'fluffy' (aka my robe or some other fulffy thing Momma had bought for him to sleep on)

Favorite Food:
He liked to eat whatever Momma was eatin'.

His special skill was ... sleeping.

indoors and outdoors

Arrival Story:
Ben brought me Been after he found him on the side of an old country road. He was starving, weak, and on the brink of death. He arrived two weeks after I was diagnosed with cancer, and one week before I lost my great pyrenees, Zack. He was truly a God-send!

Dear Been -

Mommy joined a group name called the ♥A TEAM♥. I requested that somebody in the group make some wings for you [and some for Zack, too]. Surely, you've always had them, you just hid them very well.

Missing you -

Mommy misses you somethin' awful. I still can't believe you're gone, and I suspect I know what happened to you now. Don't you worry. Your friend, Trooper Groby, is gonna take care of that mean man.

I miss your insistent cries to be fed in the mornings as you would weave between my feet while I stumbled into the kitchen.

I miss the way you'd sit outside the bathroom door and cry when I'd accidentally close the door before you'd slinked in behind me.

I miss you telling me when you're ready to go to bed. I miss the way you'd mew to let me know that it was time for you to make your nightly rounds to get a bite to eat, a drink, and to go potty before going to sleep for the night. And then you'd mew at the door to let me know you were done and ready to get back in the bed.

I still sleep with your fluffy. A grown woman sleeping with a security blanket. Silly, ain't it? But it's comforting to hold it, and I can still see your sleepy little face when you'd push it into your fluffy and snuggle it.

Daddy says I really need to get over losing you. I can't. I don't think I ever will. Of all the cats I've ever loved, you were truly the most amazing kitty ever!

I love you and miss you Been!

Been came to me at a time I needed him most. Never has a cat loved or needed me so much. Never have a known a cat with so much personality. I actually understood his every meow. Been left the house on May 25th, 2007 and hasn't been seen since. We've searched for miles around our home without success. Nobody has taken him in, and he wasn't found on the road, so we can only guess he was somehow injured and/or attacked by coyotes. My heart aches so badly for him. My life seems surreal without him, and I still can't quite grasp the idea that he's really gone. I pray every day that my Baby Been will come back home.

I love you Been. Your fluffy is waiting for you in your favorite place on the couch. Please come home. Please.
