Memories of Simba
Simba, you were with me from the day you were born and we spent 17 years together. You have been the best friend, given me so much love and comfort, I don't know how I am going to cope now you are gone. I remember your kittenhood... your first breaths, your eyes opening, your first steps, how you climbed the wall using the cushioned wall paper to push your claws into... you would look at me from the top as if to say 'look what I can do'... you would have mad half hours running round the house... you would jump on top of the wardrobe from the window sill and then look at me from the top of there too... you would jump from there onto the bed.

As you grew older, you became the most affectionate and sweet lovable boy... you would follow me round... you would snuggle up with me purring gently... always so gentle and sweet.

In the last years you and I were devoted totally to each other... you would watch me go off to work from the garden path, you would greet me when I returned, you knew the sound of my car and whenever I got a different car it would take only a couple of days for you to know it.

Now Simba, you have gone... today I am heart broken and can find no comfort because whenever I was sad or upset about anything it was you who always comforted me... you were always there... I don't know how I will survive without you. I love you so much forever.

It is now 10 August 2012... just two days since you have gone... I miss you more than any words can say... I noticed that I have put your date of birthday as 28/05 but it is 27th... I was distraught Simba the day I lost you and I think I mistyped the wrong number as my eyes were full of tears. I love you my sweetheart... my little angel... tomorrow is Saturday... always our special day... not sure how I will get through... please send me a sign... love you so much.

Sweet angel... one week has passed and one day since you left, I miss you more than I can tell you. Today I collected your ashes and the box bears the inscription 'sleep beautiful Simba, forever in my heart'. You will forever be in my heart... always and forever. I have placed the last toy I ever bought for you on your box... the heart filled with catnip with the message 'from me to you'. I had to buy you that... as the heart shows I love you so much. You are back home now sweetheart... always you will be with me.

Yesterday I spent a sad birthday Simba... it was not happy without your cuddles... I am missing you so very much yesterday, today and everyday.

A month has now gone by since you left darling Simba... it feels like many months, it has been the longest month. I miss you every day and wish you were here with me. I love you for ever Simba.

Four months since you left sweetheart... it seems like forever and I miss you so much and your beautiful sweet ways. It is Christmas now, the first Christmas for 17 years without you. All the memories of our Christmasses together, how you loved the baubles on the tree and your curious face each time they arrived. I hope you are here with me in spirit... I feel you are... I love you my baby.

I have said goodbye to 2012 and it feels very difficult because that was the year we were last together. I am trying to console myself that you are in a nicer place and there is no more pain but my sweetheart I am sad that the gap of time since we were parted gets longer... nothing can be done about it but I would do anything to be close to you again. I love you my Sossos, my Simbasos, my little angel... I hope you are fine where you are, please wait for me, I long to hear your purr again and kiss your beautiful soft fur.

It's March 31, it's Easter and spring is coming, though still it's cold, but my sweet little Simba, I send you lots of Easter hugs and cuddles... missing you always my little one.

Today Simba, on May 27th I have such special memories of you on what would have been your 18th birthday. I remember the day you were born and your mum Amelia was so proud of her four kittens. You grew into such a fluffy bundle, so cute and always so loving from the start. Your three brothers went to other homes and we stayed together, you, Amelia and me. You and Amelia will be together again now... I love you both always and think of you reunited and please wait for me at the brige both of you. I remember all the 17 years we were together Simba, and you were the lovliest little man, always so loving and so sweet, always there for me. In your old age, you were such a faithful and loving friend, quiet and calm and you helped me so much in stressful times. My little Simba, I hope there is lots of catnip and everything you love there for you on your birthday. Love you forever.

It's August 4th and I have been thinking so much about you Simba this weekend, as it is coming up to a year since you left... on 8th August. I have thought of you and missed you every single day. This time last year my sweetheart, it would have been our last weekend together, but poor you, you were not well and it must have been so hard for you those last days... you were very brave, you never complained just gave me lots of love like always. You were such a special boy, I was blessed that you were with me all those years and I hope at the bridge you are running free and happy and enjoying rolling in the catnip, I love you my sweetheart always.

So, here we are at 30th May 2014, the end of your birthday week. I have been thinking of you sweetheart... you know I think of you every day anyway but of course on your birthday you were in my thoughts constantly, both you and Amelia. I hope you are reunited together and happy, I miss you two and whilst you were still here Simba, I still had a part of Amelia in you. I love you both my precious babies. So Simbasos, you will know that there are another two black cats in our home now, Nando and Ciara, I hope you don't mind that I love them too. I am sure you don't... you know all of your are so special to me. When I watch them play, it reminds me of you and Amelia when you were both young and it's so nice. This time it's the boy who's the older one, Nando and Ciara is only 3 months old. I hope you will watch over them... and me too Simba... I will always miss you darling, you had the sweetest personality and were so gentle and loving, I miss your purrs sweetheart and those wonderful cuddles we shared. RIP my little one xxxxxx

Hello my beautiful, today is the second anniversary of the sad day when you had to leave me... it seems so long ago... so long since I was able to hold you in my arms and hear your gentle purr. Never a day goes by that I don't think about you sweetheart and miss you. I look at your pictures, you were such a beautiful boy through and through with your big gorgeous eyes. This week you have been on my mind so much and I remember with pain those days two years ago. Nando and Ciara know I am sure that I am missing you... I wonder what you would have made of them... I think in your younger days you would have loved playing with them and them with you... I think now though Simba you will be that cute and mischievous young cat again... I like to think your spirit is here and that it is joining in the mayhem. They like to wrestle and chase each other, just like you and your mama Amelia used to do... it reminds me of you two back then, as I see them flying around and here the running of their paws up and down the stairs !! I hope you can give me some little signs sweetheart to let me know you are okay... I miss you so much and love you forever and ever and I send many many kisses to you and I am thinking of our nice cuddles. My heart is always with you.

Hello sweetheart Simba, you live on always in my heart and I love you so much and miss you every day and now Ciara has also gone to the bridge and so I am all upset and sad again. Please Simba look after little Ciara, she was only 16 months and she is young and playful and she will love you so much. Nando is missing her a lot but now it is your turn to be with our little princess. Please take care of Ciara for us and remember I love you always so very much. We were lucky to have all those years together and I am so thankful for that. It's nearly three years now Simba since you had to leave... you would have been 20 now. Please come and visit with Ciara. Love you darling boy.
