R.I.P. Babycakes 5/10/94 - 7/17/09

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Fifteen years ago, right about now a three-way love affair was started. Charlie and I had adoped Rusty in March, and were looking for a female to breed him with. We met up with a lady whose kittens were not old enough yet to sell, but she let us see them, and pick one for buying later. There were four of them, but the smallest of the litter was the most rowdy, a tiny little tortie point who promptly bit me, lol!

She was to be my cat, since Rusty was Charlie's.....but they had other ideas...Rusty became mine, and she became "Daddy's little princess". She grew to be one of the sweetest cats you'd know, talkative.....didn't mind telling you what was on her mind at any given time.

There are things I know I'll never forget...Charlie rubbing her belly while she gave birth (he started it with the first batch and she expected it from then on!). We brought Big Blue in as a 16 week old kitten, to swap up the breeding.....and she almost killed him! She jumped him one night, scaring him so badly that he crapped all over both of them....was funny, after the bathing was done.

She loved anything mint.....you could put a mint candy in your mouth for a few minutes, pick her up and breathe into her face....she'd stick her head in your mouth to try to get it!

I could go on forever, but if I do, I'll only start to bawl again. We lost her soulmate, Rusty in Nov. 2007, and she's never been the same since. She'd had a few seizures before, nothing regular, so the vet couldn't pinpont them, but over the last year she started having what we humans would call mini-strokes...not debilitating, but enough to change her somewhat. Last night though, she had a major one (actually about three this morning), and this one took her from us before we could get her to the vet.

Rest in peace, my sweet Baby girl, your daddy and I will miss you more than you'll ever know.....But I know that you're at the Rainbow Bridge now, reunited with Rusty, your daughter YumYum and your granddaughter Rurnt. Run free and easy like you did 15 years ago, my sweet girl.....Meowmy and Daddy love you very, very much, and will always miss you. For those who don't know, catfolks is my husband and her daddy....and I'm afraid he's taking this as badly or worse than me.

Thanks guys.....and pray for both of us....I think this particular loss in hitting both of us harder than we'd like.

One other thing about her....the night we brought her home, she rode in my arms, purring all the while....we've joked for years that she'd probably leave this world purring.....and she did.

So sorry for your loss I do know exactly what you are going thru at this time. My DH is taking Tyler's passing very hard. Some of your stories put a smile on my face. She was a wonderful baby. RIP Babycakes

I'm also sorry for your loss. It seems every time I turn around I think of something else I will miss about her....for instance when her fuzzy buddy Rusty was alive, anytime I sat down to play the piano, he'd get on the bench and start yowling at me until I stopped.....after he died, SHE started it!

I thought I would log on as Catfolks DH Of KittenKrazy to say Thanks for all
the prayers and vibes form the wonderful people here wt TCS
To say goodbye to my little girl. I knew the day was coming but i was not
ready now but with the strokes it is better to let them cross-over then not have
any quailty of life.
But it still hurts to give them up we had her nearly 15 years and she was my
baby girl. As KittenKrazy said there are a lot of stories.
She always had to have a little bit of milk in my cereal bowl every morning
and if we had bacon you had to cook her a peice.
I gonna my little girl.
It hurts to lose one as special as that girl was, she was 6 pounds of fur
and attitude. 6 Pounds wad her normal weight small girl that ruled the house
no one crossed her.
Bye baby girl.
Find Rusty then You and Him go find the Catnip field and you will truly be
in Heaven. Then run forever at The Bridge With everyone else.
R.I.P Babycakes Love Alway's Daddy.

IT has been 9 days since you left us Babycakes, I still look for You
when I get up because I don't step on you.
You knocked the wind out of my sail when you left us'
How can something so small be missed so bad. I know this sounds crazy
but it has dropped me back in to my deep depression.

But thanks for all the kind words and prayers, but most of all thank you
for being there, and understanding the pain of losing a fur-baby they
were like kids to KittenKrazy and I because we never had kids.

But From The bottom of my Heart THANK YOU TO TCS

Charlie, it isn't crazy at all, to feel this way after the loss of your dear friend. All of us here understand how deeply our cats touch our hearts. When you lose them, a huge whole is left. Please give yourself time to heal. If you feel like crying, go ahead. Only time will begin to ease the pain you are feeling. Feel free to post here often, about the good times you had with Babycakes. After a while, these memories will not hurt as much and soon they will begin to make you smile, because you were so very fortunate to share your life with such a sweet little girl

Thank you for helping put things in order.
I guess sometimes there just more than a little feeble mind can take in a 12 year peroid I give up Dad, Mom, and Only Brother.
4 himmies the last being babycakes was about the last straw.

Thanks

Thanks from me too, guys.....its been a heck of a rough ride these past days without her.....sometimes I sit down and think of never seeing that sweet little face, or hearing her talk to me....and it's more than I can bear...I just start bawling again.
