We were so happy
when you came into our lives three years ago. From the moment
JR took you in, you accepted us into your big heart without reserve.
It didn't take long until you became part of the family.
You were such a
good ole' boy - so full of love and cuddles. We'll never
forget the way you would serenade us with your song, the times you
would play us a tune on the piano, or the way you would bump us with
your head when you wanted attention. You were always
there to sit with us on the couch, or keep us company at
Then there is the
matter of your friend, Pookie. She misses you terribly.
Even though she didn't show it often, she really did care for
you. I guess she is kind of like us humans sometimes - we hide
what we are feeling for fear of being hurt or rejected. I
think she wishes now that she would have let you know that you were

would let her pet you and love you, and that we didn't need to worry
about you hurting the little one. You were such a gentle
We always knew that
you would have to leave us one day. But our hearts would never
be ready to accept - we're still having a hard time with
acceptance. It happened so unexpectedly. We only hope
that your last few days were painless and free of fear. We
hope that you realize that we didn't desert you - you were
going to come home that night. We were just trying to help you
feel better, that's why we left you for a few days. We are
sorry that we didn't get a chance to tell you goodbye, to give you
one last hug and to reassure ourselves that you were at peace.
Yes, you are gone
from us forever - but you'll always live in our hearts. Ever
so often, we still hear the faint sound of your song echoing in the
stillness. We feel the warmth of your love and cuddles, and
the softness of your beautiful fur. We remember what a good
cat you were to us. Your pure, honest heart inspired us to be
better human beings.
miss you, Buddy, and we love you very much.
