Artemis came into our lives at a difficult time. My kids picked out Artemis and her litter mate Apollo after the separation of their dad and I. Artemis belonged to Cory, who was 8 at the time. She got him through a difficult time, and awaited his summer stays home from college, where she knew she could sleep on his chest, knead until her heart was content, and lick his arm to the skin was raw.|
Artemis and Apollo (their names go together) also got me through that difficult time. My kids were with their dad every other week, and having the fur babies, soothed my anxiety.
Artemis was simply a sweetheart. She was the one with the insistent smile that got them a can of wet food every day. She liked to get into your lap and curl up and purr loud enough to drown out the TV. She was also the talker. You could talk to her, and she always meowed back as if in conversation.
Artemis left us too soon. But she is in kitty heaven and she knows she was loved with all of our hearts. She is healthy again and playing with a Mrs Culbertson's dressing box.
She leaves behind Sonja, Christopher, Cory, Apollo and Peppa!
We love you and miss you Artemis.#RIP
3/15/17- Hi Artemis, I hope you are having fun, chasing butterflies and napping in the sun. I'm sure you've made many friends and have a sweet kitty to snuggle with when you sleep at night like you did with Apollo.
We all miss you tremendously. I think about you every day. Apollo has become more vocal since he doesn't have you to do all of the talking for you guys. He misses you and still looks for you sometimes. Even Peppa still goes in the room and comes out sad.
I wish you were still here with us, with me. I know you will be in my lap again one day. Until then have fun, and enjoy your healthy body, and all of the friends you've made at the Rainbows Bridge.
But I know that you are running around, chasing butterflies, playing with friends and sleeping. I hope you have found another fur baby to snuggle with while you nap.
I miss your insistent meow. Apollo has become much more vocal. So he get fed!! Peppa is still a sweet pea. We all miss you.
Cory and Christopher are doing well. Cory will be home for the summer, and he comes with trepidation since the last time he was home you were here with us. He misses you sooo much.
Okay dear, I just wanted to stop by and say hello, and tell you that we all love you and miss you everyday!
We miss you and love you. You will never be forgotten. Love mom.
