12/22/2015: My beautiful cat, Boo, adopted me about six years ago. I moved into the house that he already lived in and right away, he took to me. He loved me at first because I fed him, but after that, I knew it was more. He was the most lovable and loyal friend anyone could ever ask for. He would follow me into the kitchen and stay with me as I made lunch for the following day. He would love to eat the cold cuts of ham and turkey that I would give him. He loved his moist food and his treats best of all. He liked to be there for all the chores, except the vacuuming. He didn't even like the sound of the hairdryer and would run out of the room when I turned it on. I would always chuckle at the sight of him as he would sit in the doorway and "guard" me while I worked on my computer. I miss his light snoring when he would be sleeping behind me, on the futon, all curled up in a little ball of fur or stretched out looking like he was nine feet long. |
I nicknamed him Blue because when he was in the sunlight, his fur was so black it looked blue.
I can't believe that I had to say goodbye to my beautiful, Boo. He was in the last stages of liver failure and was incredibly jaundiced. I never even knew that he was sick until it was too late. The vet said that there was nothing that could be done for him that could be guaranteed and he was put to sleep at 1:57pm on December 18th, 2015. I will forever love and miss my best friend with his sweet little face. Till we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge someday, my Blue Boo. May you have all the cat treats you can eat up there.
12/31/2015: It is New Year's Eve and tomorrow will mark a new year that you won't be a part of physically. Of course, you will always be in my heart, my blue Boo, as that will never change. Spookers* misses you terribly as well. He walks around the house looking for you. =[ I picked up your ashes on December 22nd, so I now have you with me again. I look at your sweet, little face in the picture that adorns it and every time, my eyes well up. I miss you more than words could ever say and some day we will be together again, my little friend. Until then, wait by the Rainbow Bridge for me....
*Spookers, also known as Duke, is the other black cat that lives in the house my Boo just left.
01/18/2016: I can't believe that it has been a month since you have been gone now, Boo. Mommy still misses you terribly and will always do so. I have moved our home from MA to RI now so everything is different than when you were here. I really wish I could go back in time and find when you were starting to get sick and take you to the vet to prevent it. I had no idea that you were in that condition for so long. It is my biggest regret and I wish so hard that I could change things to have you back. Please know that Mommy will be with you someday, my Blue Boo. As I said before, wait at the bridge for me. You won't be lonely with all of your new friends. You are all there for the same reason, as they are all waiting for their Mommys and Daddys just like you. As you well know, I will be there one day soon so keep a weathered eye on that horizon...
12/18/2016: It has been a whole year now with you gone, my Blue Boo. It has been hard. I still look at your picture every day and tell you how much I miss and love you. There will always be a huge spot in my heart specifically reserved just for you. No one will ever take your place. Love you always. Till we meet again...
12/05/2018: Still missing my Blue Boo. Love you heaps. We will see each other again, some day. Till then, hugs and kisses, I know how much you loved those. ;)
12/08/2019: Just wanted you to know that I love and miss you, Blue Boo, and that you will never, ever be forgotten.❤🐾
