Binky was my sweet black Halloween kitty. He loved catnip and loved to roll in it and eat it. He loved to play with twist ties and would jump the wall to catch one. He played with little furry toy mice and any toy with catnip inside. He also loved little furry balls and little foil balls. Most ended up under the stove. |
He enjoyed the pop up playhouses and going into bags and cardboard boxes.
When he was hungry he'd open the cupboard door looking for treats. He was a good eater and sometimes we gave him some fresh cooked chicken and sometimes a little piece of thin sliced ham which he loved. He seemed to smell the ham even if he was downstairs. One time he reached up and grabbed the whole package onto the floor :)
He loved jumping up on the bed to go see my hubby in the morning. He would tap him on the back to get his attention, then he would get lots of extra love. He would curl up beside him with loud purring. He was too mischievous at times so we couldn't always let him stay in the bedroom.
When we would have a fire in the fireplace, he'd sit on the ottoman with me to watch it, enjoying the warmth.
If I was upset about something or sad Binky always made me feel better by being snuggled in my arms. He loved having his neck scratched and his head rubbed. His soft fur against my face and his purring always helped me feel better. He was my side-kick as he followed me everywhere. He always went behind the bathroom door so I could play with him with a string through the hinged part, something we did for years and he expected it and would wait for me.
The broom closet was one of his favorite places he would go for a nap if things were noisy in the house or with family over for a visit. He also slept in his hooded bed in the kitchen or on the couch on a furry blanket or on top of the couch chair beside the living room window where he would watch all the action going on outside. He also loved watching the birds and next door's kitties from the little window beside the stairway to the basement.
I thought I could have you forever my sweet kitty and never dreamed that you could get sick and have to leave.
I never wanted to say goodbye to you Bink and that was the most heartwrenching thing I've ever had to do. You were purring in my arms and I did not want to ever let you go. I'm so sorry you got sick sweet baby and we couldn't get you better to bring you home because I know that's where you wanted to be.
