This is one of the posts I mentioned I’d make in my It’s been a while post. I lost two cats, Miss Monkey in November from the wild cat population and the other in January, our 15 1/2 year old Angel. This post is for Miss Monkey. 🙂
Miss Monkey is the one on the left. You can see how scared she is. This photo was from before I tamed her. It took a few months before she trusted me. And then soon after, her brother Lion decided to trust me too. (The other cat here is Mama Kitty, you may remember her from the post, Mama Kitty – Life Updates.)
It was really hard to get photos of her because her favorite thing was to be held or be on a lap. 😅 But these are the best ones I saw.
She was also scared of the camera flash. Those eyes!
But then she quickly decided that she didn’t care as long as I was holding her. 😆 She started purring and she grabbed onto my shirt because she didn’t want me to put her down. ❤
Of course, it was during a holiday (Thanksgiving) when she got sick so the vets were closed. She died on Black Friday, which was kind of fitting since it was a dark day because of her death. She was 11 when she passed away.
The last thing she did before she died was use every ounce of strength she had and pull herself into my lap (I was sitting on the floor). My heart couldn’t take it. 😭
It was hard to look back through the photos at first because it still hurt so much, but time has dulled the pain a bit. 🙂 I miss her but I can look at these happy memories without bursting into tears now. 🙂
Hope you all have a lovely Monday! ❤
P.S.: As usual, I’m behind on responding to comments but I plan to do that this morning! 😀
P. P. S.: If you want to see the chickens and Jackie, I’ve been posting photos and videos the last two days on instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/peneloperoyalpayne/ You may also see one that heavily hints at another post I intend to write this week. 😉
