We very recently said farewell to our adorable little deaf gal, Reeses deBuggg.
She was adopted almost 15 years ago from Rude Ranch. She was taken in by a rescuer with several other ferals, but her personality, along with her super soft bunny fur, meant the BigMan would cave in to her grumpy little self and bring her home (even when he was supposedly NOT looking for another cat).
Even at a petite 6lbs, she was the one none of the other cats would mess with. Even Nimar swung a wide path around her if she leveled her tortietude stare in his direction.
She was also my sweet little lap cat when I played video games, and was Isis’s dearest companion.
For about 2 years now, kidney disease has been becoming more a problem for her, but she still kept on doing her thing in her own cute way. This summer a host of other issues crept up, including Horner's Syndrome and then earlier this month she lost most of the function in her hind legs. Eventually, she was just ready to go.
I hugged her right before I left town to visit my dad in the hospital, because I knew there was a chance she would not be home when I came back. I am broken hearted now, especially for the BigMan and the Isis who has need her constant companion for nearly 15 years.
There is never, ever enough time with our beloved furry companions.
