Today....He is 11 years old.

I would like to do it again please.
I want to wake up and find his warm tiny body under my covers, still damp from being born (that's where his birth mother put he and the rest of the litter) Instead of being a bit bothered by her putting them in my bed, I would like to whisper in my ear "Remember everything about this moment because one day there will be little that is more important"
And the day that I discovered that he couldn't hear, instead of feeling sorry, I would be grateful...because this fact alone would soon save my life. It would become a purpose when I felt my real purpose had died with my new born son.

He has continued to give me reasons since that day.

I have no regrets with Mikey at all but I wish that I could just do it all again just to enjoy him even more because being with him makes me enjoy everything, even myself. I smile more because of him, I laugh so much.
He has grown into this extension of me, our lives are so in sync, our souls entwined.

Today it is eleven years and I want 50 more.

FOund your blog through Blogupp and have to say I love it. I know how you feel about Mikey. Cats are truly wonderful creatures and I cannot imagine life without them as part of my family.

Sadly, yesterday I had to put down one of my babies who would have turned 11 in April. She was so precious to me and I am so grateful for the years she spent as part of my life. She was such a sweet little thing. Even at 11 she still looked like a kitten. She was a TortoiseShell cat and was simply adorable.

Anyways, just wanted to say how much I enjoyed reading about Mikey and how it is helping me deal with losing Lucy.

Is Mikey part Maine Coon? He has the same look that my remaining baby Jordan has. They both have that real fluff almost maine around the neck.

Jordan has been such a help. She stayed right by my side yesterday and cuddled and purred and licked my tears. Cats are so amazing and so loving and they certianly know when their humans are hurting.

Thanks for what you write. I have bookmarked your site and will be sure to keep checking back.

Cheryl, Mikey is not Maine Coon, he is just a Mutt Kitty. LOL

Im sorry about Lucy. They become such a part of who we are and losing them is really difficult.
I hope your bond with Jordan gets stronger through your loss. Cats are great healers. Thanks for your comment.
