Goodbye, my Marble.

Last July I had to say goodbye to my dear cat. My parents took her to be put down because Tiger had caught a bat and we didn't know if it was rabid. But she ended up coming back. I thought she was going to be put down, but instead last minute they just put her in a cage for six months. This time she won't be coming back. I really thought that since I had cried my eyes out last summer and had prepared for her to die that I wouldn't be as affected this time around. I think the part that makes me cry the most is thinking about whenever I used to cry. Marble would come running from whereever she was. Most people though she was a grumpy cat, but she was the sweetest, dearest cat to me. When I cried she would run over and still her little head in my face and curl up next to my head. It was so cute. She'd let me cry into her fur and do whatever I wanted to with her in those moments. I cried with her a lot over the past 14 years. She was my baby; she listened to everything I said. I'll miss her little marbled face. She's had a good life and I thank God for my funny little cat. Goodbye my furry friend. I love you.

Thanks Linnea. You are sweet. I can't wait to see you again!! Will you be coming for Christmas?

I offer my sympathy too, I realize you will miss her very much and she will always have a special place in your heart and memory as the furry friend of your youth--In Ollie Hopnoodle--the end says "there are no vacations like the ones of your youth" I think this is very true of beloved pets, too.

Oh, Marble! I cried, too. I really do know how you feel having lost Kitty Poppins this year, too. You not only lose a loyal, loving friend but it feels like your childhood just died. too.

That is true. I didn't quite think about it like that. :(
