A Cat Named Baby J
I still remember the first time I held you.
We were inseparable from the start.
You fit perfectly in my palm. Your green eyes matched mine. We were a perfect match.
I named you Baby J and for 12 1/2 years you were the most loyal and loving cat I’ve ever known.
It’s hard to imagine our lives without you. Our hearts and home feel empty without your energy.
I’m going to miss everything about you.
I’m going to miss your meow waking us up every morning and I’m going to miss the way you always knew how to perfectly curl up on my chest.
When it came to cuddling, you were always the best.
I’m going to miss the way you greeted me when I came home and how you always came running when I called your name.
I’m going to miss looking over and seeing you laying nearby.
I wasn’t prepared or ready to say goodbye.
You were such a little ham and everybody loved you. You left an impact on anyone who met you.
After all, it’s not every day that you meet a cat named Baby J.
You were so smart and intuitive that when we talked to you it truly felt like you were listening and paying attention.
You were more than a cat. You were my friend.
You were special Baby J.
You were a part of this family and the light that sparked a smile on a gloomy day.
I might have adopted you but you were the one who saved me.
Thank you for all of the laughs, joy, comfort and friendship that you brought me over the past 12 years.
Right now there’s a hole in my heart and nothing but tears.
But, I promise to keep you, our memories, and your love kept safely tucked away in my heart.
I’ll miss you forever Baby J and hope that I get to you again one day.
