Memories of Bootsy
I just wanted to say that my bootsy was my very best friend I ever had. I miss my boy so much. I have such an empty feeling inside me right now that I just cant bear. He always loved me no matter what.
We were so very blessed to have you in our lives for 13 plus years
When he was hungry he would come up and nibble on my arm. He wouldnt bite but his teeth were so sharp it would feel like needles.
He was really funny about his kitty box. If he thought it needed cleaned he would come get me , lead me into the basement and then lay down next to his kitty box and look at me.
He liked going outside but I would only let him out on his leash. He had an empty garbage can to jump on if he needed to. I was watching him thru the slider one day when a big brown dog came running up to him. Before I had a chance to even get the sliding glass door open he slapped that dog silly. Then he just sat there licking his paws as if to say who's next.
He's real sneaky about getting out of the house so you always had to be watching him if you were going out. One day I was letting our dog bucco go outside to go to the bathroom when bucco seems really interested in something underneath the enclosed front porch. I figured it was a squirrel or a rabbit that was under there and I didn't really pay any attention. At the time I didn't realize that Bootsy was awol The next morning I go to let bucco out to use the bathroom again. Whenever bucco wants to come back in he always either barks or scratches on the glass door. So I hear the glass door being scratched on and I go to let bucco in and there is Bootsy standing on his hind legs next to Bucco. Both of them scratching the door standing on their hind legs together. Bootsy ran into the house and stayed behind the entertainment center next to the heat register for 2 days.
It was december in pennsylvania so im sure he froze his poor little butt off.
Ill miss how he greeted me when I came home. Running up to me and purring and rubbing his head all over me or waiting for me on the basement stairs when I came in thru the garage.
Him and I went thru so much together and thru thick and thin I knew he would always be there for me and I for him.
He died in my arms on my lap at home like he was meant to. The terrible feeling I felt as he died, with me knowing I could do nothing to help him, even as he looked up at me twice with pleading eyes, is a feeling I will never shake as long as I live.
I believe the only thing that will keep me together is knowing I will be reunited with him someday when its my turn to go home. Until then, my life is gonna be a real rough ride. I know he is better off now at rainbow bridge instead of being sick and throwing up all the time and getting weaker in spite of everything I tried to do for him.
I just hope that in his new life he likes other cats and dogs better than he did when he was alive here. It took a long time for him to get used to bucco, our little bichon.
Good bye my love, my dear friend, my life.
You know your mama and papi will always love you and think of you.
Keep a nice place for your buddy, bucco. He will be going home soon to see you before too long.
Who's the best kitty in the whole big town..Who's the best kitty in the whole big town..Who's the best kitty in the whole big town...bootsaloon...bootsaloon bootsaloon..
I will see you in my dreams .
Rest In Peace our little Bootsakitty

Love, your Papi and your Mama xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Hello my love
Its been 2 days since you have left us to go to Rainbow Bridge. Your Papi misses you so vey much. I cry everytime i go to your grave to say hello to you. In fact im crying right now. Words cannot express the emptiness i feel now. Everytime i look around i expect to see you just around the corner. Going onto the front porch is especially hard since thats your room. It has your tree with the perch that you loved to lay in so much and your blanket that you layed on in front of the window.
Your buddy bucco is really confused not seeing you around anymore. He will be joining you at Rainbow Bridge soon i fear.
Please come and give him a warm rub or a purr to let him know what has happenned. Your mama and i understand but he just doesnt know.
Thank you for the beautiful butterfly you sent to let us know you were ok on the day we buried you.
I am sure all is very well with you since you are in the best place in the whole world.
Until next time my sweet bootsakitty we love and miss you so much. Bye for now
Your Papi

Hello my baby boy
I know im slow about getting on here but you know i visit your grave and cry and talk to you all the time. We miss you so much. The pain from your passing just doesnt seem to get any easier. I showed your picture to bucco and he gave it a kiss. Me and mama cried alot then.
I hope you like the stepping stone your aunt Alina got for your grave. It was really nice of her.
I bet youre really enjoying rainbow bridge now. Not being sick and full of vibrant health. It must be truly a place for miracles because, for the life of me, i cant picture you playing with any other cat or dog but bucco. You always wanted to be an only child and for that reason we arent getting another kitty.
Well my love, ill be talking to you again at your grave. Enjoy yourself alot and i hope you can hear me talking to you . I miss you and look fowrward to seeing you again in heaven with Jesus and all the other pets ive had. I love you.
Your Papi xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxooooooooooooo

Mama had a really nice headstone made for you which is going on your grave in the spring. I think about you all the time and long to see you again my friend. Your buddy bucco needs your comfort and i hope that somehow you are providing him comfort from rainbow bridge. He will be joining you i dont know when. Me and mama are fighting to keep him with us as long as possible.

Your love was always unconditional and true. Im sure you and bootsy are frolicking together in heaven now with dad and all the other dogs and cats that we ever had. I love and miss you both dearly and want so desperately to join you.
