January 1st 1987
She was 20+ when she crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. She loved to just be where Mom and Dad were - especially if they were in their recliners.
She'was deaf; so, she wasn't real thrilled when you walked up behind her and touch her prized tail.
At 20, toys were a bit out of her realm.
Favorite Nap Spot:
She had several - 2 seats look outside - we call these her food channels.
It was Hills Brand chicken for Seniors.
She seemed to be very good at positioning herself betwen Mom and Dad when they were talking.
20 years ago, Pokey's 'Dad-to-be' Ray was working in the garage on electronics and had some schematics open. He turned back to check something on the schematics; and, Pokey was sleeping on the book. She was barely bigger than the palm of his hand - just about weaning age. He gently moved her off his schematics a couple of times; but, she just kept coming back. He asked me if we had some soft kitty food (our cat JB ate dry food). I told him - 'feed a cat, own a cat.' And, gladly we fed her because we had her for over 20 years and she was the best cat ever born.
On Blue Monday, November 26th 2007 our Pokey had to be put to rest - her kidneys finally gave out. She lived a long full 20+ years; but, now we have to figure out a way to go on without her. I am not sure how that will be - since she was definitely the JOY in our home. She went peacefully and wishes all her kitty friends a happy and full life like she had.
Pokey and Mom Timmi had many of the same maladies - or close. Timmi's hard of hearing/Pokey was deaf; they both had arthritis, high blood pressure, and diabetes in common. We cherished every minute we had with our 'older' kitty - we knew we were blessed to be her caregivers and that her time on earth wouldn't be endless.
Now that she has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, we know she isn't suffering any more and hopefully all those maladies are no longer with her.
