Memories of Cheyenne

You were so unique a one in a million cat. Cheyenne you were my best friend for 13 1/2 years. You were with me through 3 different residencies, relationships, and the birth of my daughter. You loved strawberries. You used to sit on the sink in the bathroom while I showered and after would lick my feet. Loved to play in card board boxes and even crawled in paper bags. Growled when some one rang the door bell. I swear you must of been a dog in a previous life. You knew my emotions and were so in tune with me. I never had and never will bond with any cat like that again. When I was upset, you would curl up in a ball right next to me and purr. Just cuddling with you would take all my worries away and make me feel better. You loved cat nip and would roll in it. Loved to be in the sun. Whenever the sun shined into the house, thats where I would find you. You were so laid back and easy going even when I had to cut your nails. Loved when Momma did her nails and would curl up in a ball next to me wanting to be massaged with the nail file. You would pull the nail file out of my had and start playing with it. Had the loudest purr and was always at my side. At night you were laying in a ball right next to me on the couch. I used to joke and call you a traitor because when daddy came home you would jump down and greet him. Then jump up next to him on the love seat. That was your way though, you loved everyone, but always knew who your mother was.
The last year was hard with you being diagnosed with diabetes. I was so afraid to leave you alone. I never thought that you had a tumor that would rupture and that would be what took you from us. It was such a traumatic day. You were so special to me. I am going to lay you to rest in the backyard and make a garden memorial to always remember you. You will be laid to rest right in the sun with it always shining on you. I can just go into the back yard and you will be there. My dearest Chey Chey, Cheyennie Bo Bannie, Bannie Bannie Bum Bum, you will never be forgotten and will always be in my heart. I love you and miss you dearly my baby boy. I even printed a tribute to you that I am framing. It displays your picture with the "Rainbow Bridge" Poem I will be hanging it on the wall. I also have your picture displayed on the fire place. You will never be forgotten my baby boy. Until we meet again at the Rainbow bridge may you rest in peace. Mommy will always love you!!

9/7/12 We laid you to rest today. I buried you in your favorite spot right in the sun. I haved St Francis the protector of animals watching over you. I miss you baby boy and still look for you all the time.

I forgot to tell you Simba and Nakita miss you too. Simba was walking around the house crying looking for you. When daddy picked you up from the vet to lay you to rest in the garden, Nakita ran to the shed and sat there. Yes, animals feel lose too:( I am going to put up some pictures. Miss you.

9/14/12 Saw this poem tonight and thought of you Chey.

From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a cat" or, "that's a lot of money for just a cat." They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a cat."

Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just my cat." Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a cat," but I did not once feel slighted.

Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a cat," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a cat" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

If you, too think it's "just a cat," then you probably won't understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."

"Just a cat" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust and pure unbridled joy.

"Just a cat" brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person.

Because of "just a cat," I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future. So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a cat" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

"Just a cat" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a cat," but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a man or woman." So the next time you hear the phrase "just a cat," just smile -- because they "just don't understand."

9/20/12 we bought an Orange Tabby Kitten and named him Punkin, hoping that it will help take away the pain of missing you oh so very much. I know no one will ever fill your shoes and I will never have the type of bond with another other animal that I had with you.

12/1/12 we bought a Christmas tree with solar lights and we placed on your memorial garden in the back yard. I so miss you this Christmas. I still look for you curled up in a ball underneath the tree. Every Christmas morning, you would join us opening gifts under the tree and jump in the empty boxes. Ohh how I will miss that this year. Love you always baby boy.

1/20/13 Its been about 4 months since you have been gone. I miss you still every day. KK loves Punkin as he has become her kitten. The emptiness I feel can only be filled by you, no one else could ever fill that void. You are so very missed baby boy. I hope you are having a blast up in heaven at the Rainbow bridge. LOVE YOU always Mommy.

3/13/13 I found this on face book and cried my eyes out:

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said " it's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.

Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with...........



Today marks exactly one year since I have lost you. I does not get any easier. I still have an empty hole in my heart that can only be filled by you. You will never be forgotten and will always be my baby boy. I love you forever Cheyennie bo bannnie. RIP and fly with the angels.

9/1/14 It has been 2 yrs this weekend that you have passed away. I sat outside today where we buried you in the backyard and thought of you. I miss you baby boy and I always will!! Until we meet again at the rainbow bridge I know you will be there to greet me. Love u always!


It has been 2 Christmas' without you baby boy. We placed your tree outside on your grave. I am sorry I have not visited you over the Holidays. I lost the password and had to retrieve it. I still think of you often. I called your name accidently the other night going to bed. You used to be right by my side. Now, Simba your brother is at my side at night when I go to sleep. I laughed when i called your name instead of Simbas. You are missed and always will be. I hope your Christmas was awesome up in heaven. RIP baby boy until we meet again. I love you!!

I had been a while since I have visited. I still miss you and think of you all the time. It is just so hard, as you were the one in a million cat that bonded with me and was so in tune with my personality. Tonight we took down all the stuff in the back yard and your memorial site preparing for the winter. Pretty soon we will be putting the Christmas tree on your site. I miss you baby boy and I will never forget you. Until we meet again, I know you will be waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge...

9/4/17 Chey,
We lost Simba july 29,2016. It has taken me so long to just come to your page as losing both of you has been so difficult. I am trying to find comfort in knowing that the 2 of you are at the Rainbow bridge and will be there to greet me when I pass. I love you both and miss you very much!! I am going to upload pics of Simba. I miss you both more than you will ever know...
