Giddy

This post is for me more than anything.  It's a way for me to pour out my anguish.  As well as provide a place for me to go to see his little face again when I need to.  This, you see, is Gideon aka Giddy aka Love-button.  We had to let him go unexpectedly today and I am thrashed/devastated/destroyed.  We are a household of cats.  We don't have children yet.  We have cats, and they are as much family as anyone could be.  And, when you lose a family member things aren't okay.  At. all.  All I know to do is honor him here.  Tell the world how much he was loved and will be missed.  How he loved me and me alone.  How he was my shadow, and how almost never, did I sleep a night where he wasn't right beside my head.  Giddy and I, yeah, we were close.





How could you not love that little face.  Sure, he was a little odd. Sure, he was the runt, and looked a bit like an alien as a kitten.   And, sure, he was most likely inbred which made him short a few very important parts.  But, he was the sweetest most affectionate little guy you ever would meet.  He lived to press his little head into my hand.  All he wanted was to be close enough to snuggle in and let you know he loved you.  What more could I ask for?  What more could I want?  More time.


We got five good years with him.  Not near enough, but enough for him to change me.  Enough for me to fall hopelessly in love.  Enough to feel lost without him.  I know I will heal and the pain will ease up eventually.   But, the memories will never leave.  Which I am so very thankful for.   

Hope you are playing with a ping pong ball right now buddy, and have all the kibble you can eat, and most importantly, know how much you are loved and will be forever missed.

Love  always - Momma

I am so sorry for your loss. Pets really do become family members and I know how hard it is to loose one. My husband and I have 2 Bengals as our little furry family as well. Cats are so intelligent and know when they are loved and it sounds like you gave him a wonderful home full of love. I am sure he knew how much you adored him!

So sorry for the loss of Giddy. I know how you feel...I just had to have my beloved horse put down and it is breaking my heart. Time will heal but it is hard to go through. Take care of yourself and allow yourself to grieve and take comfort in the knowledge that he knew you loved him.

Lost both my cats last summer. Cleo was especially loved because we got to watch her being born and picked her on the spot. Eighteen years was not enough. Giddy will always be with in your heart.

I'm so sorry. I love my pups more than anything.

The only thing that could give you any comfort is to know that what time he had, he had loved. So many never know a life like that. Poor baby.

sorry to hear about this and know exactly what you're going thru as I experienced this with a cat I had for 13 years. Time doesn't stop and wait for pain, but pain fades away in time. I hope that the grief u have will be replaced by the comfort in the memories you have of your feline furbaby.
