Charlie passed away last night, rather suddenly.
I miss my snuggle buddy. It seems so empty & quite without him here. Now there isn’t anyone to snuggle with in bed at night. I will forever look for him at home. There will always be a hole in my heart, missing him. He was the best cat I ever had.
Charlie had a good nature with dogs & loved people. I’ll never forget how he adopted me one day, after he was abandoned by someone else. He got his name from jumping out of the dumpster, scaring the crap out of me. So he became my “Charlie in the box”, that nobody wanted.
I remember how he loved to pull on my necklace & earrings. Or how he use to put his mouth on my nose, to get me up in the morning. How he use to hog the pillow, while kneading my head at night. That he loved it when we were camping, cause we were homeless for one summer. When he use to talk to me when I got home. How he loved to be combed, but hated having his ears cleaned. Or even how I could never eat a Wendy’s burger in peace, until he got a bite. It was the only people food he liked.
He has been my buddy for 12yrs. We have been threw a lot together, but always had each other to love. My lap, heart & soul will forever be empty without him & his purring.
He was never sick a day in his life. Friday we had freon poisoning in the apartment, Saturday he stopped eating, this morning I found him passed away. So I suspect the freon got him, as both me & the dog were sick from it also. I know of no other reason for a cat, that the vet said was perfectly healthy just 3mons ago, to suddenly died.
Even Quembie knows Charlie is gone. Poor Quembie has been pacing & looking all day. Plus he keeps looking at me every time I break down in tears.
I quess I always thought, in the back of my mind, that as long as I still had my boys, everything would be ok. Now there is no more 3 muskateers as a family.
Both my boys have been my strength to go on. My reason & will to live. They are my heart & soul. They make me feel loved & special.
Now that Charlie is gone, it feels like part of me & half of my heart is gone too. I can only pray that in the next 3-6mons, after I have to put Quembie down, that I too will leave this life soon.
