Farewell to Mookie

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Mookie was my animal soulmate, she was beautiful white with brown and black patches. I met her when I was working at a local animal shelter. I walked past her cage and she reached out and grabbed me! I took her out and we have been together ever since.

That is until last Thursday night. Four years ago, Mookie contracted a rare form of cancer, we had her toe amputated, and she did great. One year ago, she came up with another tumor, this time her whole leg needed to go. But, Mookie was 15 years old, and had arthritis in her hips and her back leg could not support the weight.

So, I knew she wasn't going to be around much longer, and it broke my heart. This kitty was a special girl, she was my bestfriend, she slept ever night with her arms wrapped around my neck resting her head on my head.

God, how I miss her, I would give anything to spend more time with my baby girl. Sleeping is hard, hell, living without my sweetie is painful and so so sad. I don't think the pain will ever end, and I wish I knew she was not in pain and happy now.

Thanks for letting me get this off my chest, she was the best part of my life, and the very best part of me.

I am so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to loose a special friend, it is like a part of us leaves with them. You will never forget her, but as time passes it will be easier to think about her without crying. If you ever need someone to talk to feel free to PM me.

I am so sorry for your loss. Mookie was a huge part of your life and sounds like such a wonderful little lady. I also lost my kitty soul mate in April/04. I spent many many months of crying and day by day I found it easier to think of her and smile. Don't try and rush yourself through the grieving process...everyone heals at their own rate.

RIP sweet Mookie

Thank you both for your kind words, I know you both are right, but right now, her not being here is so wrong! I keep expecting to see her coming walking out to greet me, or jump on the bed after I lay down.

Again, I thank you.

God love her, you sound like you had one gorgeous little girl there in Mookie

As hard as it must have been for you, you did the right thing in the end because in your heart you didn't want Mookie to suffer anymore.

She's over the bridge now, bouncing about like she was a kitten again with no more illnesses and no more arthritis, but inbetween playing with all the other Rainbow Bridge kitties, Mookies looking down at you

Mookie and you were so lucky to have found each other. I understand your grief. The day that I lost my kitkat last year, I couldnt even bring myself to go home, because it hurt too much to see her things all around the house. Your Mookie sounds like she was such a special girl. Can we see a picture of her?

I am so sorry about your Mookie. She was obviously much loved and cared for to live to age 15. Now is free from pain from her cancer

RIP Mookie

So sorry for the loss of your sweetheart, Mookie. I lost my Max, black and white tuxedo cat, twelve and a half years old. I know what you are feeling. Your cat was blessed to have you for all those years. Her age proves that. I think we just have to take one day at the time. Everyone tells me it will get better. I will be thinking of you and hoping that you will find comfort in your precious memories as I do.

While all cats are special, and each of us loves our cats dearly...in reality there are certain cats who are incredibly special. Mookie was obviously such a cat. You and Mookie were closer than many people ever have a chance to grow!

Condolences on your loss. Your love for her is evident in your post. Joining this site is a good step towards healing from the pain of your loss. We understand.

Condolences on your loss of Mookie. I know how difficult it is to heal a cat-size hole in your heart. Mookie is pain-free now, playing happily until she comes bounding over to meet you as you step over RB. Godspeed, little Mookie.. Hugs, Susan

Again, thanks for all your kind words and know that I feel them in my heart. I want to share something with you that I hope you will understand.

I consider myself to be an intelligent person, but I haven't been the brightest crayon in the box! I went to a camping festival the week before I put Mookie Down. My friends and I were walking to a intensive class, and out of the woods bound this beautiful kitten. She was black and sleek and beautiful, she reminded me of a panther.

She came and set right in front of me and meowed, looking up at me with her gold eyes. I picked her up, and she went to the intensive with me and happily slept on my shoulders for the next 2 hours. No one knew whose kitten she was until we spoke with the owner of the land and she said someone had dumped her there! I couldn't just leave her there, and everyone at the festival said she was my kitten, everyone saw this but me!

She followed me like a dog all weekend, and whenshe came home with me, she came into my house like she had lived there for all her wee life! Two days later, Mookie was gone. Last night I was watching Bast, I named her after the Egyptian cat goddess, she sleeps in Mookies chair, she prefers to use Mookies litterbox, and will only eat out of Mookies dishes!

Your opinion needed here, is that wild or what? She is a delight. And I already have my bottle fed kitten, Basil, who is too black, has fallen in love with his new sister, turns out they are only 2 weeks apart in age.

For what is worth I thought yis would love my story, it's like Mookie is, or atleast a part of Mookie is still around through Bast. I will post pics asap!

Love to you all!
