I was going to write up a small paragraph about her but thought I would just list off the things I will miss about her. Then you can all see what kind of friend she was.
I will miss:
Greeting me at the car EVERYDAY when I arrived home from work. (Do they all do that?)
When she went out for the night and I had to get up for work, her sitting patiently at the patio door at 4 AM.
Her absolute patience with me.
No matter what kind of water bowl I bought her she could NOT refrain from stopping about 8 inches from it and HAD to drag it to her the rest of the way with her paw. Spilling half of it in the process.
The ambitious trot when I shook her treat bag after I got home from work. Oh she loved those!
Fat Pie could never do the usual Meow, she squeaked from when she was a kitten till she passed away yesterday.
Going about my regular duties at home and checking up on her where her favorite spot was to nap. On my duffle bag that I use for camping in the spare bedroom. She would climb on it and turn completely upside down with all 4 paws sticking straight up.
Her complete fascination with the toilet. As soon as she was big enough and could look over and into the bowl she was hooked. No drinking but her reflection in the water and she would splash the water something fierce. It was a common rule here to keep the lid CLOSED but, she always went into the bathroom and looked to see if the lid was open and it being closed she would shake her head. I think thatâ€™s the sure sign a cat does get mad.
There are about 50 other things but I donâ€™t want to go on and on.
On this last weekend here, she was feeling very, very poor and decided she wanted to lay on the bathroom floor downstairs ( a new unused washroom) most of the weekend and I already had a bad feeling her time was coming and I decided to lift up the lid on our brand new toilet and damned if she didnâ€™t have a blast about every 4 hours she would get up and stare into the water at herself and splash like crazy at her reflection , to the point where she was getting water all over the walls. I could tell, even the way she was feeling she loved it.
You know I have read about The Bridge and the factual side of me says" Well I dont know." But how could a pet capable of giving affection and showing love in such great ways not have a soul ? I hope she is splashing her heart out and happy right now.
To a Great Companion for 15 years, Rest in Peace Fat Pie, because I love ya and thanks for CHOOSING ME! I really miss you !!!
