|I'll never forget that day. Sept. 12, 1994. Leaving Mom's house and this tiny little bolt of energy came racing to us. A tiny striped cat with a Meeeeeeeeeeeeeooo that was playful and cute. I'd just moved from home and now he was part of the new scenery rather than my kitties that lived at home. Originally, he became "tiger" because of stripes, but the tiny size got him "razzed" as the Peewee cat. The rest is history. He was feisty, affectionate and loved to be part of the action. He sat on my notebook as I wrote letters to pen friends. He was part of my morning bathroom routine (as if to supervise). He was nearby while cooking dinner (please deposit some chicken) and he used to love to go for rides out in the car. Let's not forget that he would only drink water out of his ham can..Yes, a ham can. He loved Christmas, the family & affection from them, catnip, playing fetch with his fork (hey, the dog wouldn't do it!) those "jingle ball" toys and sitting by the window to watch squirrels outside. Peewee loved the lullaby tune and gave an approving grrrrowl when he heard that or a loud shrill, PEEEEEEEEEEEEWWEEEEE!" His place was laying on my chest and staring into my face. He was my boy! After 9, nearly 10 yrs. of faithful companionship and warm closeness, he started off 2004 fairly well. In May he became ill and as of this last week, we learned of his fate. A tumor had taken over and there was no hope. Peewee was ready to go home to the bridge. We all said our farewells and prayed he would go there peacefully with our blessings and lots of love. To let him go was painful but to see him suffer was far worse. He left us on August 7, 2004 and although I have sadness in my heart for his loss, I have happiness for the new life and peace his soul has found at Rainbow's bridge.|
