Goodbye Puppy... by vaia Goodbye Puppy... by vaia
I feel like I've spent the last 24 hours in tears...

This morning I lost my baby boy.
Of all our cats, Puppy was mine. Just Mine.
He was loyal to a fault and never far from my side.


Now I have no one to sit on my feet while I'm at the computer, or try to sleep on my book while I'm reading.

No one to shoo Shad away when he tries to kiss me goodnight.

No one to sleep in the kitchen window or drink out of the kitchen sink.

No one to sleep on my chest and rub all over me to make sure the rest of the cats (and Shad) knew I was all his...

No one to cry "Momma" (yes, he did) when the food bowl is empty.

No one to lay on the table next to my desk and slowly inch his way over to laying ON the keyboard when I've been online too long.

No one to wait patiently for everyone to finish their dinner so he can clean the plates.

No to steal Duffy's chicken nuggets when he's not looking or eat hamburger helper out of the bowl with Shad - at the same time...

No one to be Laurel to Stan's Hardy...or Abbot to his Costello...

He wasn't just a pet...he was family. He was one of us.
This house is going to be so very empty without him.

Gods, I lost my Sam about five years ago.
He looked exactly like Puppy.
He was mine and I was his, exactly as you describe it.
And I just realize it still hurts the same.

My apologies on your loss.

I swear I have had the same cat before. Looked Identical. I lost him October 29th, 2004 to feline luekemia. I took him in as a stray, someone literally dumped him in front of my apt. He is still with me in spirit.

He was 12 :) We got him when he was 6 weeks old from the shelter in Florida and he was my spoiled brat ever since, hehe.

Shad swears he still follows him around the house and the basement, and the weirdest thing is that Stan seems to have done a Vulcan Mind Meld :o All the weird little things that Marius used to to, Stan does now--he sits at the door when we're outside and yells at us. He sleeps (or tries to) on the back of the couch. Never used to do those things before. But he's gradually started doing more things that Puppy always did. :aww: It's really weird, but then Stan always thought he was people anyway....he's trying to make us feel better :laughing:

It's tough.
It's still hard for me to get to sleep at night without him.

His brother's been trying to make up for it, but much as I love my Stan, he's just not the same.

I feel so sad, I miss my pet, because I realized, I loved him so much, and I feel lonely without him.
