Casey - Forever- Loved RIP

The Year of the- Casey Cat!

For many this time of the year may be difficult; especially if you have recently experienced the loss of your fur baby. I lost Casey in August and december 20 wais her Gotcha Day. I wanted to use this thread for those to share their special memories of their loved ones.

Last night I started to put up our Christmas tree. The Christmas tree in the house was always a special thing for Casey. She loved to swat the low hanging ornaments and just hang around the tree. I would often just find her snuggled under the tree.

Casey was an indoor cat for most of her life and I always thought the tree represented to her a little of the "wild" outdoors. When she was still in her kitten stage I would find her trying to crawl up the middle of the tree. Every once and awhile the tree would shake and I knew she was trying to come up the middle of it. Getting her out of the tree was quite a chore.

Decorating the tree reminded me of my wild little Casey. I miss you precious.

Sweet Alex thank you for the rosette on her gotcha day.

Please all share your happy memories here. hug

When Athena and Apollo were young, I still brought in a fresh cut tree. They would lie under it and look up into the branches, checking to see if there were any birds in it. Fortunately, they never tried to climb the tree, but Athena liked to walk through the little village underneath. She reminded me of "Godzilla Cat"!

Aragorn also never tried climbing the tree. During his first Christmas he was small enough to fit inside the manger. The second year, he tried, and only could squeeze his head in the manger. So, he would lie underneath it and look at the ornaments or sit in the bay window "surrounded" by the tree. (See his page for pictures).

Now, there was my Big Ben who took the tree down every chance he could get. It is because of him that I leave the tree up for several days before decorating it. He was definitely a tree climber. Natasha would play with the ornaments. She was my quiet cat who did things and then, she would look at you and say, "It
wasn't me". She jumped on the counter top and push things down. Ben would get them....Both of them loved the Christmas turkey and would come running when it came of the oven.....My two angels are now in heaven...We were lucky to have so many happy memories....It was a nice idea, Casey.......

When my dad brought in our first Christmas tree after Morris came to be a part of our family...Mo sprayed on it. Needless to say, he got the big snip shortly after. red facelaugh out loud

Sadly, three of the four cats I lost in Hurricane Katrina were only four months old, so do not have Christmas memories of them. However Thomas and Maggie (Thomas also lost in Katrina, Maggie a few months previously to dogs), did enjoy Christmas. Never tried to climb the tree, but did like to get into any and all boxes (those brought down from the attic with decorations). This thread was a good idea, it does help to share happy memories of furbabies no longer with us.

And cats and their boxes... After opening gifts Casey would play inside the boxes. I would tap the outside of the box and watch her try to catch the sound with her paws.
