Only The Good Die Young

A Note From Jezebel's Typist

[ View A Comments (57) ]

Jezebel passed away in my arms this morning. As some of you may know, I've had Jezebel since I was 6 years old - she has been a major part of my life. I was the one who picked her out - I couldn't resist the crazy kitten that was literally climbing the cage to get me to notice her.

I slept on the floor in the living room so I could be near her - I didn't want to have her up in a bed in case she tried to go anywhere and fell. I kept waking up every couple of hours to check on her. She was so still and she felt cool, but she was still breathing. When I woke up for good around 7, I wrapped her up in my arms and held her for hours.

She seemed like she was beginning to struggle, so my mom and I decided we were going to take her to the vet. But she passed away in my arms before we had the chance. We buried her in the backyard, near where we buried Hank's ashes and Charlie last summer.

I feel like my heart is breaking. Thank you for your friendship.

Thank you for sharing Jezebel with us. We could always feel the love between the two of you. We will make her welcome at the Bridge. When she is settled in, I will be first in line to beg the favor of squiring her around.

Oh:((
We are sighing and meowmy is having those wet face windows.
Our meowmy will think of you all evening as she works...

Meanwhile, Groucho, Simba, Suki and Toki will join in that welcoming lineup.

We just feel so sad, nevfurtheless...rest sweetly Jezzy and fly well with your new strong beautiful wings.
You are a most pretty angel now.

Dear Jezabels Mom,
Hi, Natalie here. Listen, listen, no time for tears-your Grand Dame had a great life, and you made that possible. Only humans cry for our passing, we dance the light that leads to the other side, and toss back purrs to you.
I'm so proud of you and your wonderful family. Jez will always-always be a part of you.Please don't grieve too much or too long....this may fall on deaf ears, but we're little familiars that are meant to lick those tears from your face-just taste like salty pretzels-and I know my lovely Tortie fellow Elderwise friend will be doing that to you as you sleep tonight. Pat yourself on the back, and don't mourn her 'death' but celebrate-celebrate my human friend-her wonderful life she had because of you and your wonderful mom! That happened because you and Mom cared. I am patting your cheek with my tiny paw and saying 'listen-we have been with you since the beginning-and will be with you always. Love darlin'. Jez is right here and fine. Lots of love, purrs and now dry those tears-love sweetheart remains eternal. Natalie the Natcat, Tiny face, tiny paws.

I passed away at home too. My Dad worried about me every night and on my last day he woke up two hours earlier for work. I was still breathing, lying on the floor. He went back to sleep for two more hours and checked on me again, and I was gone to the Bridge.

You will remember Jezebel doing one thing, or another, every day from now on. She won't be forgotten.

Jezebel will love it here at the Bridge. We are so close to home, yet we're still a touch too far away. We still will return home, in a dream or two.

Love Felix xo

We angels welcomed Jezzie with open wings when she quietly walked across the Bridge today.

She is healthy and strong now. She told us about her loving Momma and how attached she was to you. And how she watched you grow up and become a loving young lady.

She wants you to know it is never a good time to say goodbye but her little body was tired.

When a new angel arrives, it gives us a chance to come back and visit our families. Jezzie will do that too... just watch for her...

I am so very sorry. What a way to end a very long and happy life though - in your arms. I can only hope than any of my kits are with me that long. It is hard because she was a part of you, growing up with you. I know it is closing a door in your life, but remember you had that long time together and all those wonderful memories because of you! I send so many hugs to you, and I surely know that there is nothing to ease your breaking heart right now, but your angel baby is with you, I promise.

All night long at meowmy's work, she thought of you, and your furmily, too...she even shed a tear and spoke about you to a coworker who also just had to let a kitty go to live in RB Land.
Your charm and your spunk will always be the hearts of those who knew you, and even more treasured in the hearts of your furmily, cherished, always and forever.

In Loving Memory of Jezebel

Rest well, Jezzy and soon your wings will carry you through the most beautiful place known as Rainbow Bridge Land.
There is even a window so you can spy on your furmily on the earth...

Sending lots of comforting purrs and hugs to your furmily at this time.

We are all so sad for your loss of your sweet Jezebel. It especially brought back memories to daddy. You see, 58 years ago, when he was eight years old, they got their first kitty, a sweet little silver tabby Manx named... Jezebel! They grew up together, just as you two did. She also lived a nice long life, she died of what we think was a pulmonary embolism while daddy was away at college. The way you adopted her reminded daddy of the way he and Meowmy found one of their first kitties, our angel sisfur Nonsense. Check her profile for the whole story, they found her at a shelter as a six week old little silver spotted playful fuzzball. On their first vet visit they found how special she was, the vet said she was an Egyptian Mau.

Again, we share your sadness on losing your Jez (that was our nickname for her, too).

 

♥ Jezebel RIP ♥
