A broken heart

The most perfect trouble there ever was....

Peabody's first week with his new mom - napping

Its funny how we can become so attached to animals. I never was a person who fell so in love with an animal that I would actually kiss it ... until Grumpy brought Peabody home to me last September. That tiny little ball of fur. He was so loveable and so beautiful. He would follow me around the house and talk to me. I would pick him up and he would give a little umph while I was hugging him. AND he was so adorable, I just had to kiss him. He was my baby. And he was hit by a car this last Friday morning. My heart is so broke and it still is. Sure, my other kitties are trying to make me feel better, but I miss him so much. I miss him running behind me into the bathroom in the morning and wanting me to cradle him in my arms. I miss him swatting at my legs because I walked by him and didn't bend over to pay attention to him as I was walking by. I miss him running to the kitchen as soon as he heard the can opener and trying to reach the counter as I was squeezing the tuna water out of the can. I miss him running up my bed, across my pillow, putting his face down near mine when I wouldn't move, then plopping his little furry body right in my face - and grunting as he got comfortable. There will never be another Peabody. He was super special for the short little time he was in my life.

  1. I'm so sorry for you.. The photos makes me think that he was happy during those months you got with him though. Doesn't make things better maybe, but at least you gave him that!

  6. So sorry to hear about Peabody. I know we would be lost without our pet pack here. Our cats are enjoying the summer in our carriage house and they love getting out and sunning in the herb garden. I think our hearts can never overfill of love we have for our family, friends and pets. It is just another reminder that we must live each day to the fullest and live it like it could be the last...

  9. Sorry to hear about your kitty. I recently had to put my kitty down, and one thing I miss from her also was opening a can of tuna. She'd come running in (from hiding under the bed from the kids) the second she heard it. She loved tuna.
