I will deeply miss the little black cat who decided I would be his human……it is an honor to be picked by an animal…… I am glad he chose me to care for him.


I am not sure what he endured prior to his life at my house, but the few years he was with us he made a huge impact on me.  From his first Vet visit I knew his life would be short so I indulged his every whim.  I spent a large part of time spoiling him and loving him…..  he soaked it up like a sponge, and I loved every minute of it.


Sierah gave me a hug last night and said, “Oh Mom I’m sorry, I know how much you loved that cat…..”  I did love that old Tom cat…..and he loved me too……


I will miss his constant presence in my life……  he was my little buddy.


Rest in peace “Him Black Cat”……….rest in peace my friend.

  3. Oh, Laura – I’m so sorry. He loved you just as much as you loved him. Take comfort in that. I will always remember the blog you wrote on "Him Black Cat." It was/is such a beautiful story. I shed a few tears when I read it, just as I now feel the need to shed a few more with the news. I am very, very sorry. Wish I could write somethng to make you feel better …Take care.

  4. I hope you can find some solace in the fact that you made such a difference in his life and he in yours. When I read that story you wrote about him a while back….it was just amazing. It took so long for him to come around…but you never gave up….Isnt it funny Laura…how of all the places these animals could wander too…They always seem to find you….Its almost like someone leads them into your life. Im glad he is at peace now.

  8. lauraso sorry to hear about him black cat. but to know that his last few yrs were filled w/love & being spoiled in every sense should be comforting. ur a special loving person to take in all of the special personalities (strays) that u do. i wish i had the means to take in more than just my tali. but the cat thing is outta the question cause my roomie has a bird, & tali is kind of a one owner dog. thinking of u in ur time of loss. hugsdori

  9. I’m really, really sorry.Heather

  10. I’m so sorry. I hope you can find comfort in the company of your two- and four-legged children.

  11. I’m sorry your family member is gone. I have two cats, and can’t imagine how it would be without them. They bring alot of life into the house. (of course, that along with 4 girls… doesn’t make for a boring place to be) I know you’re sad… so just let me say that I’m sorry your buddy is no longer with you.Hugs to you.

  12. That is so sad…I hate the loss of a pet. They should live as long as humans…it just doesn’t seem fair that they don’t. Kelly

  13. I’m sorry, I’m sure you were an awesome mommy to him! ~kate
