ellid: (Malfoy)
I adopted him thirteen years ago, when my marriage had just broken up. Barbara Gardner found him for me and said "he needs a home, you need something to make you laugh." And he did, through that lonely winter, and then through the rough times that happened. He slept beside me, purred when I petted him, and was as good a friend as anyone could wish.

His real name was Hunter Moon, sometimes called Baby Boo or Baby Blue Eyes. On-line, I called him Malfoy-the-cat. Today he lost his fight with kidney failure, thirteen years, one month, and three days after he came into this world.

I still have Gil and Diamond, and I'm going to hug them extra hard tonight. But I will be thinking of my little flamepoint friend.

Good night, Hunter, and sleep well. May you and Arrow and Siren meet over the Rainbow Bridge, and may your time there be full of sunshine, slow fat mice, and play for all eternity.

I love you.

I'm very sorry for your loss. :(

Thanks. He was sweet, and beautiful, and so very, very not intelligent...but he was a wonderful cat, even if he couldn't hunt to save his life.

Thanks.

Oh honey. I am so sorry. I also hope he finds his friends on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. *hugs*

Thanks. I really appreciate the kind words - he was such a good cat.

Made me cry... Don't know why I do that over cats and not people.

Thanks. Hunter was a special boy, and so affectionate. The house feels empty without him, even with two other cats.

I'm so sorry. What a lovely memory you wrote.

I am so sorry for your loss. That is so sad and heartbreaking. *hugs*

I'm glad he's at peace, but I miss him so much. He was such a silly, sweet boy.

So sorry dear. Understand about the emptiness created even with two other cats in the house -- our furred friends have a way of filling more space in our lives than seems possible for something so much smaller than us. *hugs*

I know. It's going to be a few weeks or months before I look for a third kitty - Gil and Diamond need to adjust.

So sorry to hear that he has passed. Hugs to you.

Thanks, hon. I miss him a lot.

*BIG HUGS*

Oh, honey, I'm so sorry! He was a great cat and a wonderful companion to you and I know you'll miss him terribly. I'm sure he's earned eternal catnip and a soft cushion in paradise.

Date: 2013-09-11 10:57 am (UTC)From: [identity profile] ellid.livejournal.com
He was a terrific boy, and so funny. Thanks :)

So sorry to hear of your loss. Sending lots of hugs your way.

Thanks. He was a good boy, and so very silly and not-bright. The house seems empty without him.

May he rest in peace, and may the many memories be of comfort.
