In of honor of my wee Diesel D. He went missing in December 2012, never to be seen again. It has been pure torture, and I pray each night he is warm, full, and purring. Today, it is time, time to stop wondering and release Diesel into the Meadow over the Rainbow bridge. |
What a terrible experience, to have an animal go missing, I wish it upon no one and I pray Diesel was never in pain, never scared, never hungry, never cold, and always knew each and every moment that I loved him.
Diesel joined my family (myself and Kiras (tabby) and Leopold (black DSH) in March 2009. I didn't intend on getting a kitten that day, I already had a two year old and a ten year old at home. But, something said - stop at the shelter. Leading my friend and I to stop at the Seattle Animal Shelter in Bellevue, WA. Just a peek at the kittens, they are so cute. There he was, in all his fuzzy black glory, all pound and a half of five week old scruffy fighter. All alone in the cage, giving me the look. "this one", I told the adoption assistant, "I want to see the black one." I was warned that he was a fighter, a scrapper, a biter, a scratcher...basically, not a nice kitten. I wondered, but there was something in his eyes. We headed into a small room as the assistant scruffed this little black ball of wailing, wiggling, holy terror. Arriving in the room, I wasn't sure, but the assistant put him on my lap, he looked up at me, purred and curled up in my lap. I picked him up, the purr grew louder and he nuzzled into my neck. "Looks like you have been chosen." the assistant said, "I feel chosen, he is so sweet" I said, with tears in my eyes. I tried to hand him to my friend to see what she thought - he freaked out and jumped back to me, curling up again. I played with his ears, his paws, his tail - he would let me do anything to him.
We had three amazing years, he was loved 100% every day of his life and spoiled rotten. He had a great life, though it was much too short. I will never know what happened to Diesel and I will always ask why. A piece of my heart was taken the day you disappeared. I searched day and night, doing everything possible. I am sorry my sweet little guy. You will forever be my little buddy and I just with I could have kept you from harm.
Forever loved...never forgotten. Diesel D!
