Good bye Princess Pooky

Our Princess Pooky has passed away and my heart is broken…..

She was our little girl, always there for a snuggle or a game of chase.  She ruled the house.  It hurts too much, we lost our child. Seven and a half years was too short.  I can’t hardly think or stop crying, so rather than trying to explain how much we loved her and how big the hurt is, I will tell her story with pictures.

looking through the hundreds of pictures we have of her is becoming too hard so I must stop now…..  I will return in a few days with updates of fiber festivals, spinning, and new yarns, but for now I need to let my broken heart heal.

good bye Princess Pooky, thank you for being the bestest little kitty in the whole wide world, we miss you so much……

Love Mommy <^..^>

  1. My heart breaks for you and the pain you must now know. I lost my heart kitty at 4 years old due to an undetectable genetic heart defect. 7 1/2 years is too short too. The loss is bad enough without it being a total shock to the system when they leave us so young. He was my child, too, my son to me. I will keep you in my prayers, please accept my heartfelt condolences. I can’t say the pain will get better, because for me it hasn’t, but I’m sure that like with my boy, Pooky wouldn’t want you to be upset. Mine was deeply bothered when I was hurting and always tried to make it better. He was a mind-reader that way, and was the most bonded kitty to me I’d ever had (lay like a baby in my arms snoring at night), and I don’t expect to have that bond again. Having others to care for is not the same as that special one you had, but it helps give some purpose after such devastation. I don’t think we could have summoned the nerve on our own to go out and get another, it seemed/felt crass since no one can or ever will replace my boy (please don’t think I’m suggesting you should go out and do that, I’m not), but on our walk one evening a hungry, thirsty, matted kitten (5 months) jumped out of a 20 ft. tree and ran to us crying. We took her in (couldn’t find owners). She is extremely grateful and very healthy now. Perhaps someone that needs you will fall into your lap as she did in ours. I wish you the smiles such a thing might bring.

    1. Thank you for your prayers and kind understanding words. It has been hard without her, but we are keeping busy with the move. We are looking forward to the day when a new fur baby claims our lives, but that will be a while before we are ready. We have had many furry kids over the 28 years we’ve been married, and this little girl was very special. The next furry kid has some pretty big furry shoes to fill:)

  2. My heart aches for you…itʻs so hard to lose our beloved fur babies. Princess Pooky was gorgeous, and I loved seeing all her photos. I pray that the pain will lose its sharp edges over the years… even if the pain wonʻt go away. Big hugs….

  3. Cheryl,

    I am so very sorry for Princes Pooky’s passing..I understand your devastation and sadness. I hope as the days pass, your pain will ease and your memories become sweeter. Sincerely, Suzette
