I know it’s been a gazillion years since I’ve blogged. And I truly have wanted to get back into it with great gusto. I have blog postings floating around in my head all the time. I just can’t seem to get them on paper lately. Or maybe I should say on screen.
But before I go further with my blogging, I have to put this one out there. Because I have a strong need for my little blogging community to know my heart. You who have been following my blog for a long time will understand. You can’t read my blog and not know how much of a cat lover I am.
For those of you new to the blog, you might just want to skip this one. But for those of you who have known and loved my Boo, please bear with me……..
He came to live with us in January 2004. Full of youth and spunk. A wide-eyed sweetheart. It took me awhile to warm up to him. It was too soon, you see, after I’d lost my dear Buckwheat. But he quickly wormed his way right into my heart. And I was forever his Mom.
He loved to watch the birds at the backyard feeders.
He always wanted to be right in the middle of everything. And he spent most of his time right by my side. No matter what I was doing.
He never met a box he didn’t want to climb right into.
He was a great traveler. When Dear Hubby got a job in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he rode back and forth with me in the car almost every month for a whole year. He was a great companion in the car.
He loved our motorhome. And traveled across a lot of the USA with us.
His favorite spot going down the road was my lap. And he would usually land in it about 30 seconds after the motorhome started to move.
He went to Oshkosh with us and even came home with an aviator buddy!
He saw the Badlands of South Dakota…..
….and walked on the beach of the Pacific Ocean in Oregon with Dear Hubby.
Sometimes we’d find him riding in the most unlikely of places.
But most times he would just be in my arms.
Sometimes he was our navigator. Pointing the route he wanted us to take. He could even do it in his sleep. He was one wise cat.
And he had many friends along the way. Including Spanky.
I’m sure I could think of a million captions for this one. But suffice it to say, I caught him in a really great yawn.
Remember how I said he was always in the middle of everything? I don’t even know why I was taking this picture. But he wanted to be smack dab in the middle of it.
My sweet, sweet Boo Bear. I cannot even fathom a world without you in it. You will always be in my heart. And forever in special memories of the Best Cat in the Whole World. You’ve only been gone a few days. And I miss you so very, very much. I thought we’d have a lot more years together. I wasn’t ready to let you go. But then again… I never would be, would I?
In loving memory of my special Boo
April, 2003 – August 12, 2013
