Memories of Magic Dukes
My Magic was more than a cat. From the first moment I held him, I fell in love with him and knew he was mine, and I, his. For 18 years, he was my child, my furbaby, my constant companion, confidant, best friend, alarm clock (with no snooze alarm--when he was hungry), psychic protector, and he always knew when I was sick, and was there for me--my big black purring, calming caretaker. Now it was my turn to be his (hospice) caretaker.
As he fought so hard to get better, I was by his side. Every day, every night, when he cried out for me, I answered, "I'm right here, baby," "It's ok baby," "I love you so much, and you are so loved by so many, and by no one more than me."
Then as he lay there, and I would lay next to him, I would thank him for being everything to me. What wonderful years we had. How we were so lucky to have so many good long years. How I was so very blessed to have him, and it was OK to let go. I'd be ok. As I pet his silky fur, I told him over and over I loved him so much.
I said all of this as I felt a part of my soul dying as he did.
When you died in my arms, at home, surrounded by love, my heart broke. I had you cremated, with your favorite red Pom-Pom string "monster" I made you, a furry mice-y, and you were wrapped up in the shirts of those who loved you. Lastly, I cut a large lock of my hair and it was put in between your paws--so you have something to find your way back to me, and I have the necklace that some of your ashes were put in, to find my way back to you. Until then, this necklace keeps the furbaby of my heart, Magic, always close to my own heart.

RIP Magic Dukes. I'll see you on the other side of the rainbow bridge. (Say hello to your sister, Shadow, and please tell her I love her and miss her too.) I can't wait to see you both again, as my heart aches terribly as I learn to live without you.

My Heart Will Go On--Celine Dion
Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you,
That is how I know you go on

Far across the distance
And spaces between us
You have come to show you go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go till we're gone

Love was when I loved you
One true time I hold to
In my life we'll always go on

Near, far, wherever you are
I believe that the heart does go on
Once more you open the door
And you're here in my heart
And my heart will go on and on

You're here, there's nothing I fear
And I know that my heart will go on
We'll stay forever this way
You are safe in my heart
And my heart will go on and on


You've been gone a year now, and my heart still hurts. But somehow, I think you are still taking care of me, since what was to be a terrible day filled with grief from your passing, wasn't. Instead, I made a new friend. Thank you, my beloved Magic.
And anytime you want to visit, your blankie still sits in your spot, always ready for you to cuddle up in.
I'll never stop loving& missing you.
In morning, I decided I wouldn't get my hair done, until after the anniversary of your passing. So for over a year, I've had this big chunk that's shorter than the rest. It's from where I cut it to be put between your paws, so you always had a part of me with you.
Please, remind your sister, Shadow, how much she is missed and loved too.
Take care of Kim, Mom(and her sister/my Aunt), Dad, and others I have lost. Let them know by you loving them, how much I love them and how they are so dearly missed by me.
Say hello to Spooky, Happy, GEO, Lucky, Earle, Mr. Big, Oreo, and Snowball for me, with hugs and kisses. Even Genesis& Hammie--don't you dare try to eat them, though!
Be a good little man, and try and help and care for the new arrivals....Thank you my Magic for so enriching my life and others even now.
I love you, forever and always.

It's now 2022. 4yrs, yet I still miss you every day.
Lucid/Luci Lou, passed last year. I know you weren't such a fan of her, but please be a good boy and be sure Shadow finds her. Tell everyone I love&miss them,&hugs, kisses,& pets to all. But none as much as you, my little man.
