(April 1988 - Nov. 1, 2004)
In Memorandum of the other sweetest heart
I'll ever know....
"Punky Bum"..... you came to me
as a sweet little 8 week old kitten.
Abandoned and left on your own to survive outside where
I lived at the time.
was so alone and lonely, just like you sweet little boy.
I saw you hanging around when I would come home from work
and you looked so cute and happy and new those first couple
I went to get you some food and put it in a dish for you
outside and you ate like a hungry little tiger.
A few days later, I saw you outside laying in the low
bushes. Usually in the days before, I would call you to
come up to me and you would. Friendly little heart and
soul. That third day when I called to you, you just lay
there, looked up at me with that tired dirty little face
from living outside for a few days, and meowed this heart
wrenching long meow as you looked slowly back down to
the ground still meowing. I was heart broken to see such
a sweet baby crying for love and companionship. I picked
you up and brought you home. Fed you (you were so hungry)
then put you on my bed and lay there with you as you slept
for 10 hours (poor baby). You loved how soft and cozy
the bed was. I stayed there with you watching over you
as you sleep for all those ten hours.
The person who you were given to from your
litter came home from his 2 week vacation and said he
wanted his cat back (after abandoning him) and I said
you were my cat now. I told him he'd have to try and take
you from me and I was prepared to scare him off real bad.
He saw that in my conviction to protect you....and he
You were my sweetest little boy ever since then. You lived
a long time and had all the love and affection a sweetheart
like you deserved and then some.
I rescued you.....but you rescued me more.
I was never lonely again. "Baby" came next year
(I have his birth year wrong on his obituary here...it
was 1989) under pretty much the same scenario. We lived
together the three of us for so many years as one happy
When you passed in November of 2004, I felt I had lost
one of my children, because I did.
There has been a hole in my heart ever since,
and now that your brother Baby has gone to be with you
this year, that hole is way too big to repair. I miss
you so much.
I hope you are in kitty heaven playing together
like you used to when you were here with me.
Just like I used to tell you both, I love you forever.
Love, hugs and kisses, Daddy xo
My mom had gotten us a new cat. A friend of
hers from work had found a stray cat under her truck,
but when she she tried to keep it, her other cats did
not take to her very well. she asked around at work and
since we had recently lost a different cat, my mom thought
this would be a good opportunity to replace her. so, she
brought home a tiny, jet black cat with a dab of whit
on her chest. one of my sisters named her midnight. she
was the prettiest little thing there ever was. she must
have been abandoned by her mother fairly early, because
she took to sucking on your fingers and any blankets she
saw right away. she was very shy and skittish, although
not entirely afraid, for several days. she eventually
got used to our neighborhood
and us. when she was about 2 1/2 (we never knew her exact
age) she had a litter of 5 kittens. it was really unusual.
a black cat had 3 brown tabby kittens and two white and
gray kittens.. we were pretty sure that the father was
a brown tabby cat, but who knows? her
kittens were born while we were on vacation in maine,
but we were prepared and we had her in a room where she
could be comfortable and safe while we were gone. when
we got back, she gave us the scare of our lives. neither
she nor her kittens were in the room. we looked every
where. and, eventually we found her in a closet in my
room. kittens and all. after that she led a very normal
life, raising her kittens, watching as three of them were
given away, and watched as her remaining 2 sons grew and
prospered. then, one night, we let her
outside, just like we usually did. only, in the morning
she wasn't there. we put up sign for a lost cat, we called
the shelter, we did everything. we never found her. when
one of our neighbors saw our signs, she called and told
us what she had heard one night. she said there had been
a horrible scream, not one that a human could ever possibly
make, but one like an animal in a horrible fight. like
a cat in a horrible fight. we again called the shelter,
but this time we asked them if they knew of any predators
in our area. they did. coyotes stalked the powerlines
around our neighborhood. they said that they would eat
small dogs out and cats when they were out at night. so,
we knew what had happened to our beloved cat.
To Midnight: we love you dearly, and you will always be
in our hearts.
Love, carolyn, peggy, julia, mom, and dad
