Anniversary time

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
2 years tomorrow since Moogie died.

We didn't have her very long, only about 4 years. She was a rescue cat, her first owner had been ill for a long time and died, and poor Moogie was very scared of all the movement and loud noises in our house. She spent the first six months running and hiding under the sofa at the slightest sound or movement, but grew to trust us. She was a black cat, who took sadistic joy in standing in our way as we stumbled about in the dark .... the amount of times I nearly fell down the stairs as she tripped me up!

I still miss her and the affection she gave to us, her skinny tail and bald elbows, waking up in the middle of the night to find her sitting staring at us (unsettling), her purrs even when she became ill and needed weekly visits to the vet, her hatred of Alf our other cat, her boyfriend Muffin who would wait in the garden for her. And so many other things that were special about her and remind me of her.

I'm sad, but enjoying the chance to remember Moogie

flimflam, I know how hard this was on you. It hurts us so much when we lose our little furry purrers. However, you must take great joy in knowing that you made her forget her fears and grow to trust and love you. I'm so glad you rescued her and gave her four wonderful years. Isn't it strange that the little idiosyncrasies our pets have make them even more memorable and more loved? I'm glad you chose this forum to honor the memory of this little creature of God. It's obvious that you really loved Moogie.

I truly enjoyed your tribute to your little Moogie. It read so lovely, I feel like I have met her. Please pass tomorrow knowing that she loved your family greatly.
With affection........

I don't know what it is with me and poetry today but flimflam, your post brought to mind this one ...

Put the rubber mouse away --
Pick the spools up from the floor --
What was velvet shod and gay,
Will not want them any more --
What was warm is strangely cold --
Whence dissolved the little breath?
How could this small body hold
So immense a thing as Death?

--by Sara Henderson Hay

Your tribute to your little Moogie touched my heart ... I know the scope of pain that the loss of an especially-loved companion kitty can bring, and anniversary dates are always difficult.

Holding you close in my thoughts,
