Tamir has been an Angel for a Month

Today is Tamir's one month anniversary at the Bridge.  We can believe our sweet ManCat has been gone for so long.  Mom asked us if we would let her post today, and we said yes.  We hope she doesn't embarrass us!!

Thanks furkids....I'll do my best
Sweet Gracie made this lovely graphic for our boy.

There are so many things I miss about my boy.  From the day I found him at the shelter, we had a special bond.  Tamir howled all the way from the shelter because he was scared of the PTU.  I found out that he and his brother had been left at the shelter in the PTU and were probably there for hours before someone found them.  Your MEHOWL was a signature as you grew up.  When you were looking for me or even when you went into a room you had to announce yourself....in a blood curdling HOWL!  I sure miss that sound.  You would do the same thing when you thought the food bowl was getting a bit too low....you never wanted to miss a meal!!  You never really knew how big you were....you were always trying to squeeze into small spots!  We were always amazed at how you could get into the small PTU, turn around and snooze!!

Your meow was loud but your purr was even louder.  Once your Daddy thought he heard a helicopter over the house but he was wrong - it was your PURR!  You would purr the second I touched your furs.  Sometimes at night you would get up on my pillow and purr me to sleep.  You loved snuggling with me in bed and would bodyslam the bedroom door if it was closed.  It's lonely in the bed now.  I reach for you and you're not there.  I even miss your snore.  Even making the bed is sad because you taught me how to make it without disturbing your naps.  I  learned how to strip the bed and put clean sheets on by only moving you a tiny bit.  You were a good teacher!

You loved belly rubs and ham and being brushed.  I have a little baggy of your furs from brushing you the night before you left for the Bridge.  Your special treats are still on the table......

I miss you so much.  I know you and Sniffie are happy to be together again at the Bridge but it doesn't make losing you easier.  I see you in your bed, on the chair and walking by me at night. I hope these are all signs that you are happy at the Bridge.  I will always love you and you will always be with me.
I talk to you every time I pass your Urn.  I love seeing your sweet face.

Tamir's Urn

Till we're together again............

I Love you,
Mommy

It is very easy to see how special Tamir was to you. It must be so hard for you now that he isn't with you in body. But he is forever in your heart - remember your blog title - Friends Furever:)

That touched my heart. Tamir was a special boy.

Mommy is leaky eyed for you as she remembers that special deep hard pain of losing Admiral. Tamir was deeply loved and treasured and he felt the same about you and his daddy and siblings. As I have said to several other bereaved parents of furchildren, your baby knew how much you loved him. That is worth gold and gems. He had a treasured and good life with you.

You miss his precious little body next to you and in all the places he loved to be... and his dear ways and sounds that only he could make. We moms have to grieve till we are able to face the loss remembering the good times and the precious ones.
