I’ve been thinking about how you came into my life and know that it wasn’t a coincidence at all. I know in my heart that God created you for me – and for some reason picked me to love and care for you, to be your MAMA. It was a cold October morning in year 2000, and you were a cross the street, a very little bundle, few weeks young, crying and looking at my house. I went outside, across the street and you waited for me. Picked you up and brought you inside, thinking what to do next, because I had 3 other babies: Abbett, Fifi and Mickey. Gave you a nice bedroom for the night, you slept well, and the next morning you went outside with the others. It was a nice sunny day, you wondered through the neighborhood all day long; I could hear your cries from the hills and thought for sure somebody will take you. In the evening, peace and quiet, everybody in, except you. Didn’t hear your voice anymore, but I still got out around 9pm to see if you are not around. To my biggest surprise, there you were, at the garage corner, waiting for me, you didn’t even have to cry anymore, you knew I will be out in the night to bring you in. Gave you the same bedroom, and you started purring so sweet, so I named you PURR PURR. You were accepted in the family with love by Abbett, Fifi and Mickey. But unfortunately in 2004 we lost Abbett, and we all miss him a lot. I hope that you are reunited with Abbett now at the Rainbow Bridge and play with other fur babies.
I look at your pictures and still can’t believe that you are gone. How could 8 years have passed so quickly? It is so hard to believe and my mind and heart are having a difficult time accepting that you are gone.
Purr Purr, you took my heart with you when you left me. I love you so much and I’m glad that you don’t suffer anymore. But, I miss you so much that some days, like today, I just cry and cry. The house is so empty and I am so lonely without you. Fifi and Mickey are looking for you and waiting for you to eat together.
From this day forward, I want to remember how happy you were. I want to remember the way you nibbled at my ankles in the kitchen, waiting for some goodies. I want to remember how you waited every morning on the left side of the bed for me to get up, and you put your paw on my food. I want to remember you enjoying the big condo, and the highest bed, watching through the sliding door. I want to remember how you loved Fifi, and how you liked to tease Mickey. I want to remember you sitting under the bird feeder, waiting to catch a bird. And how many did you bring me in the kitchen, unhurt?
You will always and forever be my sweet Purr Purr (or how I many times called you Purrpoury). I am forever grateful and thankful that you came into my life, for your unconditional love and affection, and for being the best boy ever! I still long to have you by my side, but I know you are with me in spirit always… Today you are sitting on God’s lap, instead of mine!
Love you forever,
