My beloved lap fungus. There are really no words to express how much loosing you hurt. You crossed the bridge on August 9th, and it has taken me all this time to make your memorial. I just could not bring myself to say that last good bye to you. Nothing could have prepared us for loosing you so suddenly. Every night when Daddy and I come home, we still expect to see you there and to wait for you to yell at us to sit down so you could curl up in our lap. If there was a lap available you were in it :-), that's how you got your silly nickname "Head Lap Fungus". I miss having you cuddle with me in bed, I miss hearing your purrrs and your meows as you carried your mousie around the house waiting for us to tell you what a wonderful little hunter you were.
It seems as though it was just yesterday that we saw you in the shelter. This tiny, little, frightened black kitty with the beautiful eyes. When I reached in to pet you, your starting purring and then I held you and that was it, I was in love. You came home with us that day. You were so afraid for the first few days but then you blossomed and turned into the little love bug that everyone fell in love with the instant they met you.
Oh my darling dot, nothing makes loosing you any easier. We know how blessed we were to have you with us for 20 of your 25 years here on earth. Your love knew no limits and you made our lives better by being with us. Your sweet nature just made everyone (even people who don't like cats) love you. I know that you are happy and healthy again and that you are playing at the bridge with Misty, Poo-Bear and Maija.
Please never forget how much we loved you, and will always love you!! One of my greatest joys in life was having the privilege of you in my life. I think of you every day, so does daddy. Me miss you!
Until then, all my love always,
