It's been just over two years since you have been gone and the feelings from that day still come rushing to me like it just happened. I didn't expect to feel so much grief for you today, but my heart is very very heavy and I am feeling very blue.
You were born today, in the year 2008. You would've been five today on earth!!! That's definitely mancat age! Oh, my sweet little loverboy.
Some days I am afraid that I won't remember the smell of your fur or your little nose kissies when it was bedtime. I really miss how you would nurse your blankie on my lap. =)
You would be so proud of little Jack if you were here, and I know you two would've been friends-he likes to play just as much as you did! I know he kind of looks like you, but he is not a replacement at all-there is no other being that could ever replace you.
You would be so proud of Kitty too!!! She has been so brave and also so sweet with Jack. She is even more beautiful than she ever was too! I remember one day a long time ago when you were watching a man and a little boy out of the window, and they were watching you. And then Kitty came and the daddy said, "look at the white kitty! She is beautiful!" and I got so mad because you are just as handsome as Kitty is beautiful! But what do they know anyway!
I miss you so much. I know that I made mistakes when you and Kitty were kittens. I could've done things better and I am sorry. I did my best.
No matter what, my heart will always have this huge, special place for you that will never be filled. A place that is all yours and full of our memories. And that makes me so happy and lucky!
Sending you lots of love on your birthday Indy. I miss you very much.

Please don't be so hard on yourself. My mommy does the same thing and I tell her to be okay with everything she did for me. She was doing her best, as were you. We love you Auntie Kristin!!! XXOO
It isn't easy to be the family "left on Earth" when a kitty sisfur/brofur finds their way to the Rainbow Bridge.
There are times that I've felt Taag's angelic (or is it more "mosquito-like") wing beat near us.
I'm always sad for the families who remain behind. They're the ones missing and remembering and mourning all "the ones who've gone before"
I send your family our purrs of comfort on such a difficult birthday and we send our head bonks of love. We're virtually rubbing our cheeks against your mama's own cheek, marking her gently in our remembrance of Indy.
What a fine (and benevolent) queen Kitty P has evolved into, mentoring the young Sir Jack.
Indy lives forever in the heart of his family and in their memories and in the gratitude of young Jack who has found comfort in the family that is forever !
HAPPY BIRTHDAY INDIANA! Your Mom has wonderpurr memories of you, you will always be with her and in her heart!
Now lets go party sweet angel boy, time to dance and then we will send your Mom a special butterfly from you, she will know it when she see this butterfly that you sent it to her..
