Memories of Minky

Minky first came into my life Oct 1994 when she was just a kitten.
She was very sweet and loving and never hard to please.Although she never liked being held too much she loved to cuddle up on my tummy while I was laying down.She loved to follow me everywhere and when she wanted my attention she would take her paw and tap me on the leg.
After a short while Minky stopped being just my cat and was my best friend.
She was also my alarm clock in the mornings and would greet me at the top of the steps when I would come home. I have many,many great memories with Minky but I am only going to mention a few.
- When she was a baby she climbed to the top of our Christmas tree and tried to take a nap up there.I remember I could not find her anywhere.Then I heard the branches moving and realized it was her.She loved Christmas napping under the tree,climbing all through the presents like they were all hers!. She also liked trying to eat the tonsil or drink the water from the tree.
But mostly she liked to nap under the tree.
-Another time was after Minky came home from the hospital (her very first time) she was on medication that made her a little loopy and some how wondered into our attic and fell between the studs in the wall.For hours my family and I searched for her but could not find her. She never meowed a word. Then finally when I passed the wall where she trapped and she heard my voice she would whimper, Well needless to say my husband had to cut a hole in the wall to get her out.

Then on March 10,2008 I took Minky to the vet,she was loosing weight and wasn't eating,after blood tests,x rays and ultra sounds,plus three days in the hospital they told me she had Cancer on her lungs and spots in her abdomen,then drained 250cc of fluid off her chest and sent her home two weeks later she went back to the vet and stayed another three days placed on O2 and had another 250cc of fluid drained, she then came home for six more days and was given La six and another medication to increase her appetite. On April 4th I took her back to have another 200cc of fluid drained. I brought her home. I could not get her to eat anything,she could not get comfortable,she would not follow me around, she whimpered and meowed most of the night.It was the most horrible night of my life I did not go to bed I stayed by her side.In the morning I called her vet he told me it was most likely time to let her go now,he said bring her in I will evaluate her first.As soon as he looked at her he said the fluid has built up already again since yesterday, she is having a hard time taking in air, he said it was time.
And now she is gone and I miss her Dearly.

It was one week ago today that you had to sadly passed away.

I miss you more and more each day you are no longer there to see your sweet face

to wake me each day.Two days now I have awoken late.

YOU CAME INTO MY LIFE A LITTLE OVER 14 YEARS AGO...

.I WATCHED YOU GROW FROM A LITTLE KITTY TO A BEAUTIFUL CAT.

YOU GAVE ME MANY DAYS OF PLEASURE AND HAPPINESS.

YOU CROSSED THE BRIDGE TO HEAVEN .

BUT I KNOW SOMEDAY I TOO WILL CROSS AND I WILL HOLD YOU AGAIN.

AND THIS TIME IT WILL BE FOREVER.

YOU MADE ME LAUGH WHEN I WANTED TO CRY.

YOUR FAVORITE SPOT IS EMPTY NOW, BUT YET I STILL SEE YOU.

I WILL MISS THE PITTER PATTER OF YOUR PAWS.

YOUR LITTLE MEOW WHEN YOU WANTED TO BE HELD.

I WILL MISS MY MORNING WAKE UP CALL,

FROM AN OUTSTRETCHED PAW,

SAYING GET UP AND PET ME.

I WILL FOREVER REMEMBER YOU AND MISS YOU EVERYDAY.

I WILL THINK OF YOU DAILY UNTIL WE MET AGAIN AT RAINBOW BRIDGE. WHERE WE WILL BE TOGETHER FOREVER AND EVER AGAIN APART.

I LOVE YOU..............
