Remembering Bear

Meows from a broken-hearted Mudpie...

Our love began a few years ago when he sang about his love for torties to the tune of Three Times a Lady, not knowing it was one of Mommy's favorite Conway songs...

Then just this past Valentine's Day he serenaded me with yet another Conway song, making both Mommy and I pawsitively swoon...

My beloved Bear ran off to the Rainbow Bridge on Mother's Day, safely cradled in his Momma's arms one last time. Now it's my turn to express my love in song...

Bear, Mommy and I will miss you so, so much. You will always have an extra special place in our hearts. You left your Momma with enough love and memories to last her a lifetime, yet I wish there was something we could do to ease her pain.

Oh, and Bear? I just know you're chasing torties up there in Heaven. If you run into my big sisters Tara and Truffles, please let them know I'm taking good care of Mommy. But don't forget that I'm your best girl, okay?

********************************************************

Note from Mommy: After leaving our condolences on their blog, Momma Kat responded with a comment that brought tears to my eyes, "I imagine he might be surrounded by torties on the other side - but they won't compare to Mudpie - and she better live a nice and long life - until they meet again. Some things are worth waiting for."

We were so very very sad to read about Bear! He was one special cat to his MOm> We will miss him too! What a wonderful tribute!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

I don't know what to say. This is just so incredibly ... BEAUTIFUL. THANK YOU. Bear was everything and somehow so much more. I'm so angry I have to learn to live without him - but friends like you two help so incredibly much. I know Bear is smiling down on you now - and off searching for Tara and Truffles if he hasn't met them already.
