About What our cat Stojko might say about me

Previous Entry What our cat Stojko might say about me Feb. 18th, 2010 @ 03:23 pm Next Entry
I hate going to the vet so much, my family has asked
the lady who I would probably like if she wasn't a vet
to come by and see me in an hour or so. So my catfriend
Reggie the Balinista is gonna steal Mom's password and
put this message from me in her journal, for Mom to see
my last words whenever she misses me in the future.


So, What Is Mom Like?
by Stojko, age 11

Quite often, Mom tasted like salt. Once in a great while,
Mom tasted like chicken. And it was also wonderful whenever
Mom tasted like vitamin supplement. She even went on safari
a couple months ago to replace the kind they don't make anymore,
and she found another one I would lick right from her fingers.
I gave her a big meow-up for that one.

Most recently, Mom has been tasting of prednisone (which is
not much fun), essiac tonic (which is even less fun), and
tuna water or chicken broth (which are still pretty awesome).

But anyway guys, I have to go real soon. One of the tumors
is now clearly visible on my left side, I'm not able to walk
anymore, and I'm running out of energy for this life. Mostly
I've been sleeping (but keeping half an eye open on the Mom)
and dreaming of the fun stuff I'm going to do in my next life,
like going upstairs or rolling around in nice warm sunshine.

However, I want to tell Mom every time she petted or held me,
she always smelled like love. That was the best part of Mom.
Even better than tasting like tuna or chicken.

I just hope that I smelled like love in return. Because it was.


Thanks and final headbutts to all Mom's friends,
Stojko

Oh... to be completed by "no", yes?

(Sorry I wasn't clear enough initially that it was going to be somewhat sad; I added some warning words after I saw your response.)

Oh honey, I'm so sorry! *hug* Stojko, rest and play and dance, and pounce in the next life. Be waiting because some day Mom will come to join you and will be expecting you to make up for lost time by tasting her often....

Thanks... I guess it's peaceful, but I'd trade it in a half-second for a loud vibrato meow and a 5 AM "Mom? Treats" wakeup call.

Thanks. We hope wherever he ends up next, there's plenty of cans of tuna and a human with a can opener.

Thanks. *hug* I hope it conveyed the joy as well as the sad. He lived months longer than the vet expected, and every day we stole from death was precious.

Thanks. Every time I thought I was calm... but I try to think of all the good things and continue to treasure them.
