Arrival Story: Hooch was the second cat to join our family. He arrived about a year after his sister, Kujo. He had originally been adopted from the pound by our daughter's co-worker who was living in an apartment. This co-worker had Hooch about 2-3 weeks when the apartment complex found out about him. The co-worker was given a choice of a huge pet fee or getting rid of Hooch. She chose the latter and offered Hooch to our daughter. We went to visit him and fell in love with this charming feline. Needless to say, we brought him home with us that very day.
Bio: Hooch has appointed himself to be the "enforcer" in the group. If any cat gets into a difference of opinion with another cat in the family, Hooch takes it upon himself to settle the matter. Hooch is the Alpha cat - or he tries to be.
Two years ago on that fateful Monday at 6:36 PM EST in my loving arms, you made your journey to the Rainbow Bridge. Your earthly adventure and time were way too short and you fought many illnesses the last 4 years of your 14 year life. You always fought the multiple health battles with much bravery and you always gave it your all. I know you did not want to leave your loving home and family, nor did we want to let you go. But we could not stand to see you suffering.
My heart was shattered into pieces that day. I am still trying to gather all those broken pieces but it is taking a very long time and I don't really think I have enough time left in this world to gather all those shattered pieces of my heart that fill our home.
I miss you daily and shed a small tear still... some days I do much more than shed a tear. I am reduced to sobs. That is because it still hurts so much to face the days without you. You were my rock. I also smile and even chuckle in remembering all the funny things you did and your sweet gentle ways. Your memory brings me many smiles, along with those tears.
I want you to know that you are the number one HERO to me. I can only hope to face adversity as well as you always did should I ever be faced with it. Your life blessed me beyond belief. What a lucky meowmy I was to find you in my life.
I do have a favor to ask you. Your best buddy in our home is Baby G. She is not doing well lately and could use some extra Angel dust sprinkled over her. So would you mind stopping by daily to sprinkle your loving sisfur?
Yesterday was a very sad day, indeed, for my furmily and me and for so many of our Catster furiends. We were shocked and saddened to learn that our beloved furiend Chelsea Louise took a turn for the worst and made her journey to the Rainbow Bridge. Now, she can romp with those of us who were called before her. Catster lost one of it's best when Chelsea was called away. We will forever love you, Chelsea. You made us smile always. Now, let's go find a catnip field are play together, dear furiend.
Since my brofur Prince lost all the pictures and things he had posted on the right side of his page (along with his background that was not touched or changed) disappeared mysteriously, we will all be posting our special honors in our diaries in hopes they will be safe.
