In Memoriam

Yesterday I received some very bad news from my mom. Our cat, Zooey had been hit by a car. My throat hurts today from crying so much yesterday. Man, Mondays are just terrible days for me! Our cats, Franny and Zooey had been staying at my parents house because we can't have pets in our apartment. I want so bad to go and get Franny and bring her home, my poor kitty probably misses her mate terribly. Everyone is pretty upset by this, my mom, dad, everyone. He was just the sweetest and most gentle cat. Maya was pretty upset yesterday but more concerned about her crying mom, she kept drawing me pictures of Zooey, hoping it would make me feel better. She is such a good girl.

Zooey is the orange marmalade cat

I'm so sorry about your sweet kitty. Losing a pet is so hard. What a little sweetie Maya is...hug her extra tight today. Wishing you comfort and peace as you mourn the loss of zooey.

Poor little kitty. :( So sorry to hear that! Losing a furry friend abruptly like that is terribly heart wrenching. You certainly have my shoulder to cry on.

Diana said...

I'm so, so sorry. :(

What a beautiful marmalade your Zooey is. Male orange tabbies like that are just priceless; they're some of the best cats I've ever known. And I didn't even have the privilege of knowing Zooey but I'm certain he was in that class.

Poor baby, both of you.

And what an awful situation, as it was so out of your hands.

I wish there was something I could do.

Perhaps, in time, you could paint a tribute to him and keep his portrait with you always.

I hope the pain will ease, at least just a little, very soon.

Thinking of you,

Oh, I'm am so sorry. He looks like such a strapping young man :) Try and focus on your memories of his amazing spirit and the lovely lady friend he has left behind. Much much love to all of you.

Thank you all for your sympathy. As Diana said, male orange tabby cats are really great cats, and Zooey was the best of the bunch. I really appreciate your kind words.

I am so so sorry :(

Losing a pet is so hard, especially when it happens so suddenly.

I'll be thinking of you and sending hugs. Chloe sends her hugs too.

I am so sorry for your loss! I totally know how you feel...I just lost my favorite little guy- a male orange tabby named BANG on April 25. I am completely devastated beyond belief- and even writing this can really not even believe he's gone! I cry uncontrollably and have such a whole in my heart that I can't imagine ever feeling "whole" again... So from one heart sick 'kitty mama' to another...I'm so sorry for your loss and hope we can eventually get past the pain of their loss and appreciate the love and friendship they gave us while they were here! www.myspace.com/lbcdre -there are pics of my handsome little guy on there...
