Purrrrrr! Oh, what a motor you had. You picked me that day in the animal shelter 18 years ago. You and your beautiful eyes and the paw that you tried to reach out to me with and that amazingly loud motor, yes my beautiful Chloe, you had me at purrrr!
Your human family loved you very much. You were the one and only for many years before we had Bryce and I know that was a BIG adjustment for you. For an indoor kitty you had lots of indoor fun and a few escapes. You never went far from your home life which was much too posh for you to become an outside kitty. You loved the birds and your catnip and even the baby, eventually. Your life included four moves and in the last 4 years of your life, we threw in a puppy. Life was rocky for a good while, but you set the dog straight on who was boss and she knew it. Fresca seems a bit lost without you.
It was hard watching you age and lose your hearing, but you adjusted and we kept our eyes on you. We had 18 wonderful years with you and you rescued us as much as we rescued you. You were Daddy’s first fur baby and he adored you!! I keep looking at “your spot” on Daddy’s chair and it just doesn’t look right without you curled up there.
As I held you on Saturday and let you go, I stroked that same paw that reached out for me many years ago. You will forever be in our hearts Chloe.
Rest easy my fur baby.
