Daisy - June 2000 - Feb. 20, 2002


This is my little sis, Daisy. Me and Mom dopted her on June 2, 2001. She was about a year old and she was from a shelter but she was at a Petsmart waiting to be dopted when Mom went in there.

It didn't take long for me and Daisy to become friends and we played together a lot. I taught her all the impawtent things, like how nice it is to give mom hugs when she comes home from work. After a while, mom would pick us both up and we would give her hugs, me on one side and Daisy on the other - purring and purring - mom called it kitty stereo and she said it was her favorite sound in the world. One time, we were playing chasies and we knocked over a table with all pikchers of the neeses and nephews on it. Daisy was scared and ran away, but I knew mom wouldn't yell at us, she just laughed and said we were silly and she picked up the pikchers.

Daisy loved to just sit with mom, up on her shoulder, purring and purring and getting petted. Now we know that Daisy didn't play all the time because she didn't feel very good always. Daisy had only been with us for 9 months when she started acting really strange one weekend. She was eating litter out of the litter box and hardly eating any foods. She wasn't walking right either, and you could tell that something was wrong with one of her eyes. Mom took Daisy to the vetty bean where she had lots of tests and got some medicines to help her while they waited for the test results. Two days later Daisy wasn't any better and they had all the test results. Daisy had FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) and she wasn't going to get better ever. Mom didn't want to, but she had to help Daisy go to Rainbow Bridge and now she is our Guardian Angel, just like Jasper and all the other cats from our family who have gone ahead.

Mom says she knows that all cats are here to teach her something and that Daisy was here to teach her to appreciate everyone in your life, because you never know when you might lose them. So please, efurrycat, give your beans some good hugs and purrs in honor of Daisy today. And efurrybean, please make sure that all the furries and beans in your life know that you love and appreciate them too.

Because you adopted her, Daisy knew love and was taken care of when she got sick. She won't be forgotten, either.

How lucky you had her for the time you did--and she you, too. I bet she's taking very good care of all of you.

I am so sorry. What a beautiful remembrance and poem for your wonderful kitty. I love my kitties so that I want to read other kitty love stories even though they sometimes make me cry.
The sweetest-kitty-ever (as my mom calls her) is in the garden at her home,my mom's, under a pretty stone inscribed just for her.
