Tony was the most amazing cat. He survived being hit by a car, animal control and losing a leg, all before I ever got him. After that, two major surgeries and years of medication. He always purred, always followed me around the house and always slept next to my pillow at night. There will never be another cat like Tony. He was one of a kind and I will love him and miss him until I see him again.|
I am adding Redford and Lily to this. I adopted Redford about a year after Tony's passing. I didn't plan on another cat. Lily and Jolly where enough but it was love at first sight. I am certain Tony sent Redford to me. He was an orange tabby. Sweet, funny and full of love. He was always waiting for me at the door when I came home. His tail would quiver and I'd pick him up and look into his eyes and tell him how much I loved him. He would look back at me with so much love sometimes it made me cry. We only had 5 yrs together but they were precious and I miss him so much.
Lily was adopted with Tony and was soft, gentle, beautiful. She was pure white and I loved her so much. We had 14 wonderful years together and I cherish them all. I will regret my decision to let her go for as long as I live. The guilt is overwhelming. I am trying to concentrate on the love and good memories and know they are all together. Healthy, happy and hopefully looking forward to seeing mom someday.
Unfortunately, it is time to add more friends that crossed over the bridge. Nicholas was adopted from the same rescue as Lily, Tony and Red. He was sweet and funny and probably loved treats more then anything in the world. He was great friends with Redford and once I adopted T.R., best friends with him. Nick was white and orange and cuddly and I loved him so much.
Jolly crossed a few weeks after Nick. I adopted Jolly a year after Tony and Lily. She was beautiful but cranky. Really should have been an only cat, but I just couldn't give her up. She wasn't the easiest cat to live with but I loved her. She had a great purr and sweet, sweet face. I miss her always. I hope she found peace and happiness over the bridge.
