Wordy Wednesday

Today is one year since our precious Lily Olivia received her wings. It seems as if she has been gone much longer. I miss her helping me on the computer. I miss waking up to find her staring at me. I miss her kisses. I miss hearing her bark like a dog when she wanted something or was angry with us.

Lily Olivia was with us for more than 18 years. Her death came at an age when she would have been heading off to college if she were our human child. She, however, will never return as that child would. Most of you have been through the loss of a beloved fur child, so I know you are aware of the loss I continue to feel. I often stop by her and Fiona’s urns on the bedroom dresser and talk to them.

I pray we will be together again in the future.

Here are a few of my favorite photos of Lily Olivia.

This final photo was take on New Year’s Day 2018. We think Lily Olivia was sharing with Sawyer all her knowledge and tricks for getting exactly what she wanted at all times. The two spent a lot of time together during Lily Olivia’s last few days.



We miss you and love you, Lily Olivia.


You will be with us always in our hearts.

I am touched seeing the picture of Sawyer and Lily Olivia together. How confident they are of each others company. Sawyer is a fine young man and I know he learned a lot of cat lore from Lily Olivia.

Janet, Lily O was an awesome Crotchety Cougar. I adored her as she had a unique personality. She knew what she wanted and how to get it. What more can any of us ask for? She knew she was loved and loved her family right back. She lives in my heart also cause she was and is a force to be reckoned with.

Your girl was lovely. That picture of her sitting with you while you work is classic. I bet we all work like that regularly. I’m sure you do miss her. I know you will see her again.

What wonderful photos of the beautiful Angel Lily Olivia. We know how hard it is indeed….yesterday was Angel Sammy’s birthday and while Mom and Dad enjoy celebrating the beginning of a new year, it was also “his” day. Life goes on but there’s always that little bit of a spot in human hearts that never quite heals……….

Big Hugs from us!
Love, Teddy and Mom

Louie the ginger cat died on August 1, 2011. That date is engraved in my memory, as is that last, sad day.

They, our kitties, remain with us long after they pass, and I have no doubt ten years from now, you will think about your sweet Lily Olivia on her day.

Hugs and you know we, your readers, remember her and feel your sorrow. ♥

Purrs, the first anniversary is difficult, especially around a holiday.

She was a beautiful kitty, Janet, and I am glad you have all these wonderful memories of her to keep.

We just lost our Willow on December 20th. They live on in our hearts forever.


Meows, purrs, hugs and MOLs are greatly appreciated. Please no hissing, spitting or scratching unless you want one of us to whap you!
