Cecelia on her

Cecelia on her "throne"

Cecelia's nighttime habits:

1. When wanting to be fed (at 4:00 A.M.), she either:

  • a) kneaded my back with her paws
  • b) laid across my face often suffocating me
  • c) bit your ears
  • d) licked to the point of annoyance

2. When you finally give in and get up to feed her, she:

  • a) followed you into the laundry room screaming impatiently
  • b) weaved between your legs purring sometimes tripping you

3. Licking herself:

  • a) very loudly
  • b) throws up hairballs after licking

4. Purring:

  • a) she seriously sounded like a motorboat.
  • b) you could hear her from across a room.

5. She was a:

  • a) licker
  • b) motor
  • c) biter
  • d) diva
  • e) self-grooming maniac
  • f) puker
  • g) loyal and devoted friend

by: Gail (Boston, MA USA)

Thank you for sharing your fondest (and humorous) lifetime with Cecelia. She loved you enough to share her innermost habits...good for you. It's a reminder of how much our furkids will be missed once they've moved on. Thank you again.

P.S. - Don't be surprised if Cecelia doesn't pop up in your dreams once in awhile. Cats are spiritual creatures and do not like the inconvenience of the Rainbow Bridge getting in the way, LOL!

Hi Cody. This morning Snow White woke me up early because I had forgotten to fill her bowl last night. Otherwise she would just have lain down and allowed me an hour more. Your story reminds me not to take her morning ritual for granted.
Yes, our cats develop habits and routines during their lives, and so the departure of and old cat like Cecelia can't help but leaving a an empty space. Gratitude and being fondly remembered is all we can offer old friends like her when they're gone. Thank you for sharing her with us.

Mar 15, 2010 Sweet Cecelia
by: Dorothy

What a sweet story. What will you do now at 4:am? Probably wake up, smile at what a good life you had with your sweet cat, then quietly go back to sleep remembering the love.

It amazes me how cats can get their um, what is the word, owner or slave?...to do just about anything they want.

Good for you taking such sweet care of your girl.
