My heart is breaking as I had to say goodbye to my beloved friend of the last 17 years, Tiger Lily. From the moment she adopted me from the animal shelter, she's been the sweetest kitty I've ever known. I'm so thankful Lily spent all these years with me. She brought me joy and companionship and taught me so much about love. |
I'll miss Lily "talking" telling me exactly what this wanted - food, attention, brushing. I'll miss playing with her and giving her great big hugs. I'll miss Lily sleeping next to me -- until she decided it was time to get up and then she'd meow until I agreed. Lily loved to hide in unusual places and wait or me to find her. She also loved to greet me at the door with her updates of what happened while I was gone.
Lily fought declining health for as long as she could then I had to make the difficult decision for her. Lily got to pass at home with Rosie and me by her side. I'll miss her so much but I know my mom is watching over her. And she's playing with her friends Holly and Tiger again.
6/27/16 It's been a year but some days it feels like yesterday. I still have Lily's picture on my computer and phone not that I need pictures to remind me of your wonderful personality. I miss your "meow meow meow" when you were ready to eat or play. I miss you snuggling next to me or biting on my head when my hair is wet. I am grateful you are out of pain. And I'm grateful for all the years we got to spend together. I'll keep missing you until we meet again.
6/12/17 I was just telling someone the other day that I cannot believe it's been 2 years since we said good-bye. I still have your picture on my phone and it makes me smile. You are thought of every day and I pray you are happy and at peace surrounded by love. I am so thankful for you and all the joy you brought to my life. I hope I brought joy to yours too. Love you Lily!
