I miss you

I could not let this day go by without mentioning that today, April 1st, would have been Smokey's 19th birthday.

Yes, cat's live that long and longer. So, each one that goes by where he could have been alive is especially sad.

I still miss him just as much as the first day he left. It will always suck, but I have reached a point now where I'm glad it sucks. I'm glad I'm the one who gets to miss him. I was very lucky. He was so special.

Smokey - I hope you are waiting for me in heaven. Be sure to hunt, catch, and eat all the birds and mice you want while you are waiting for me. I miss you.

Isn't it amazing how such little creaures leave such big impressions!?!

I like where you are going with the poodle suggestions...I may have to add one or more of those titles to the poll...if it allowes me to do that. Thanks for the comments!! :)

THanks for visiting my blog. I have a "Smokey" as well. In fact, don't tell anyone, but my 13 month old is named "Thomas" after him. Best cat ever. (well, next to Petunia, my soul mate cat who is only 11).

Hope Smokey and Thomas are hanging out together in cat heaven.

I miss Smokey too. I was so sad when he died. I saw how much you loved him. He'll forever be in our memories!!
