Cats, Life/Social

Rest in Peace

You guys may have seen my beautiful cat, Jeffree, around my blog. He’s like my child, he’s more than a pet and he will forever be in my heart.

Everyday he would sleep with me. Every. Day. It was never off schedule. On Thursday, the 19th, he never came in to sleep. I knew something was wrong on Friday morning when he still wasn’t there. So I went out and called him, nothing. I went to every house on my block and asked if they had seen him, nothing. I went to the animal shelter, nothing. I called animal control, nothing. On Sunday morning, I got up and was about to make fliers (need I mind you that I was crying these 3 days all day long, wondering where my baby was) when the animal control in the police department called me and said they found a cat behind my house (my backyard is on a really busy street) that matched Jeffree’s description. They said he had been hit by a car.

As soon as I heard this, I started to cry (and I mean like that really annoying sobbing that makes you choke) uncontrollably. She said she was sorry.

I never got to say good bye because he didn’t have a collar/chip so they thought he was a stray. So, this is my goodbye / rest in peace. Also, I’ve been praying and hoping it wasn’t painful. He’s with his mother now, in cat heaven. :)

Goodbye, Jeffree-Takune. I love you, please play nice with all the other kitty-angels. (Gosh, this is really hard.. I’m ruining my makeup, lol) I hope your mother approves of the way I took care of you, you were a very happy cat. Looking at your pictures makes me so sad and sleeping is so miserable without you. Rest in peace, my cat-son.

    God this made me blubber uncontrollably. I have a cat too, and I just couldn’t imagine that happening to me. So, in saying that, I’m incredibly sorry for your loss and he was a beautiful cat, but I’m glad you’re looking at it in a better light. <3

    I’m sorry for your loss. It’s never easy losing a beloved pet. I had two pet fish once, and I was heartbroken when they died. I can’t imagine how you’re feeling. From what I’ve read, he seems like a wonderful cat. His memory will always live on.

    So sorry to hear about your loss. I can’t imagine losing my cats that way. I recently moved to the other side of the world, and had to leave my two babies behind with family. That just about killed me. I’ve had my oldest cat for about ten years, and she’s a lot more than a pet to me too. She’s my oldest and best friend, so leaving her behind was really hard.

    Jeffree was a beautiful and happy cat, and I’m so sorry for your loss.

    Oh no.. :( Sorry for your loss. He’s really beautiful.

    I have three cats, and I know how painful it must be to experience a friend pass away. I hope he lives happily with the other kitties :)

    Your cat is stunning. I feel the same way about my cats. I talk to them as if I were talking to children. It kind of is a bit like raising kids while they’re young. Every thing except shoe shopping, and if they had thumbs I’m sure they would scribble on the walls.

    I am so sorry to hear about your cat. :( He sounds like a champ. My best friend Sookie went missing about eight months ago. I am still in shock and am still waiting for her to walk through the back door. She too would come to bed every night. I would say “bed time” and she would beat me to the pillow. She was chipped and I did everything possible to look for her. My biggest regret is not having a collar on her with my number. I think the worse part is not knowing where she is or if something happened to her. I would rather her have found a new home with dinners every night and a warm bed with a friendly owner. She was so sweet. I still can’t look at videos and pictures of her, I’m scared I will sob.

    I have two cats with me now. I just adopted a kitten the other week. She’s so adorable.

    I’m sure your late pal will want you to have someone to be in his place so you’re happy. When you’re ready your next friend will be just as awesome.
