July 1, 2007 - March 3, 2021 Jessie you were my baby. You came to me with your sister as abandoned kittens and I loved you from the first moment I saw you and my love for you grew every day. You were the sweetest and most loving cat I’ve ever known. Never once did you bite, scratch or hiss. I will never forget your squeaks as I tickled your head. You couldn’t get enough tickles and I can’t believe I will never see you squirming with joy while I was giving you them. You’d be so happy you’d dribble. You loved to play and chase butterflies in the back garden or just sunbathe under your favourite rose bush. That is where I chose for your final resting place because I knew you loved it there. I put your favourite toys in with you so you could play with them at the rainbow bridge while you wait for me. You and your sister were inseparable and I would often find you snuggling or licking each other’s heads. She is really missing you and is searching all over for you. I can’t make her understand that you’re not coming back. You were only three, you’d been hit by a car but you still managed to make it home even though it must have been so painful. I’m so grateful you made it so I could say goodbye. I made the vets try and save you even though I think they knew it wouldn’t work but I had to try. I miss you so much. It’s only been a few days so my pain is still very raw. I can’t imagine our lives without you. I can’t believe I will never see your little white nose pressed up against the back door. I’ll never see you excitedly jumping for your dinner. You’ll never be waiting for me on the bannister looking proud as punch that you were up there. You’ll never curl up on my chest in bed or on my knee purring. I’ll never see you kneading your blanket to make your bed. The stairs are so quiet without you chasing your ball down them. Jessie you have taken a piece of my heart with you. You will always be my baby and I will always love you. Your life was taken far too soon, I hoped we’d all become old ladies together but you will be forever young. I hope we will all be together again someday. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever.
