The love of my life is gone.

Monday, July 15, 2013

I put Joe-Leen down last Monday. I've been having my ups and downs since. I never thought that something so small could cause such a big hole in my heart. I wrote a poem for my sweet cat.

Best friend
Truest companion
Devoted to her family
Peacemaker amongst cats
Comforter of broken hearts
Heart of gold
Chest warmer at night
Food snatcher
Taste tester
Bottle water fanatic
Follower of human mommy
Greeter of pizza delivery person
Demanding and opinionated
Emerald green eyes that spoke,
louder then her meows.
My little Chubbers always.

I raised Joe-Leen since she was 4 weeks old and 14 years later we've come to an end. But I'll never forget her facial expressions.

    Those special, sweet pets sure leave an empty spot. I hope you find comfort after your loss.

    I lost my BFF (golden retriever) 2 years ago last may. I try to simply be grateful for having her in my life though my most difficult times. HUGS to you.

    I love your poem. I recently lost my best friend, too. My heart is broken. I know it should get better, but I miss her so much. We will keep their love in our hearts. Treasure the memories! My heart breaks for you, too. emoticon

    What a lovely poem about your cat. Maybe you should have it framed with a picture of her. I have a dog that will be 16 in November and she is such a huge part of our family. I can't imagine what it will be like when she is gone. I feel good though because I know she has had a good home. She is soooo spoiled. Take care and remember the good times.

    What a wonderful tribute to your lovely cat. We have had to put down three dogs over that last 15 years and have two that are getting quite advanced in years. However, our cats.... while 10 years old.... seem still like kittens to us.
I know that hole in your heart, but remember you did Jo-Leen a favor by ending any suffering she had.
