Sassy, It is 2017 now and I still see you at Nana and Linda's house. We found drawings Nana had done of you - she loved you so much. We miss Mom, Daddy, you and Tigger, Nestle and Scamps very much. Love Mama 1-22-17|
As another year comes to a close, I look around and realize so many I loved are gone now. Nana last spring, Bumpy the fall before, and Ray, who loved you so very much as well. My thought is to see you and Nestle, Scamps, and McTigger with them and all of you free of pain and happy. You will always hold a place in my heart my special girl.
Sassy, As time passes and I visit Nana and Linda's house, I still see you sleeping in the closet, or coming out to see me and meowing and rubbing your head against me. I always smile and we talk about you and what a good cat you were. I am glad you are free from pain and happy again to romp with Nestle and Scamps and McTigger. Sassy, I will always love you.
It's hard to believe a year has passed since Sassy went to the Rainbow Bridge. The house isn't the same without her little face peeking around corners, or her loud purrs when you picked her up. I know she is happy now, free to be with all her furbaby brothers and sister; Nestle, Scamps and Mctigger. I miss you my baby girl. You brought so much love and happiness into our lives and we will never forget you. We love you and are always in out hearts and souls. Love Mama
When Sassy and I first saw each other at Petsmart, in Tampa so many years ago, we knew we had found each other. She had both paws around my neck as they told me that Maine Coons are rarely in shelters, and that they had 3 other people already hold her who were going to call back. I decided to adopt her that minute and have never looked back. She was such a fun kitten, sleeping on top of my head and playing in water. Loyal and friendly, she loved her Mom and Dad and then later her Aunt Linda, Nana and Bumpy. She grew used to Nestlé and Scamps, but never quite forgave me for adopting McTigger. He wanted to play- he was a kitten when she was not and he tormented her by pouncing on her and scaring her whenever he could. They tolerated each other. When Tigger unexpectedly got sick in 2011 and then died, she seemed to flourish. She lost her fear and loved to sit out in the sun and enjoy life. She was arthritic and frail, but in good shape. Her thyroid was under control, she ate all day- she was happy. And then this morning she woke up Nana to eat and was kissed and petted and then she went back to bed, She did not wake up. She died surrounded by her things in her own bed, of natural causes. I will miss her so much- but she had a long and happy life (minus Tigger attacks). We are all sad but glad she went peacefully. She can now play like a kitten again with all our loved fur babies in Rainbow Bridge.
