This is the post I promised back in my It’s been a while post.
Back in 2004 – yes, 2004, I had her for over half of my life! – my dog brought me a present.
My dog brought me a kitten. We still don’t know where she came from for sure. This is when we first met! We had her in the back of our truck.
Here is the dog who brought me Angel. Her name was Grunt. (Don’t let five-year-old me name animals, okay? 😂) Not long after she brought me Angel, she got hit by a car. I was crushed. But Angel helped me get through that. I thank God for bringing me Angel. ❤
Getting back on track, my parents said no animals in the house – that lasted a whole three days. 😆 It started raining so we brought her inside, only until the rain was gone. And she never went back outside again. 🙂 Here, you can see her on dad’s back. One of her favorite places to hang out. 😂
She was officially an indoor kitty! And she made herself right at home. 🙂
After we found her, we no longer needed to put a star at the top of the Christmas tree – we had an Angel up there. 🙂
She had her crazy moments. Here we destroyed a paper sack and a newspaper. 😆
She had such patience – she put up with younger me. In this photo, she let me bury her with my plush animals. Can you find her?
She had favorite places to sleep. On top of this TV was one of those. 🙂
Mom cleaned out the cabinets and started reorganizing and afterward, we couldn’t find Angel. Here is where we found her. 😂 After this, Angel wasn’t allowed in the kitchen much unless we were present.
Mom washed the towels and put them back in the drawer and here is where we found Angel. 😂 She started opened drawers and cabinets and emptying everything – or sleeping on stuff we didn’t want her on. 😂 My parents bought baby locks for the drawers and cabinets after this.
If we couldn’t find her – she liked hanging out on top of doors. Just had to be careful when closing doors. Didn’t want to accidentally smash a paw or knock her off the door. 😂
One of my favorite photos of her. Makes me laugh every time. 😂 I caught her mid-yawn.
These two are two of my other favorite photos of her. 🙂 Those eyes!
I thought making this a collage of the two of us over the years might cut down on post length. 🙂
The avatar I’ve used for the past few months, this photo, is the last photo we took together before she died. It was New Years Day. Yes, that is the same shirt I was wearing in the first photo of this post. I found it and thought it would be fun to have our photo taken together with it for nostalgic purposes. I didn’t realize it would be our last.
She will be missed. I treasure the memories we made together. ❤
