Oh Middie, I am sorry it has taken me so long to write this but I just couldn't seem to get my thoughts together. You came to me with your mom Chan and your aunt Noir from the streets. You did not care for humans at all but you fit right in with the kitties in the house. It took you a very long time to trust me even a little bit and you would hiss at me if I got to far into your space. Eventually the hissing stopped and I was able to get closer to you and I could put your food bowl and treats close to you. But I still could not touch you. Later you decided to let me stroke your head or back just one time and then you gave me a look that said "That's enough human." Then the day came when you let me know you were ready to move on. For the first time in your life you let me hold you. I sat with you for hours, holding you in my arms, rocking you like a baby and telling you how much I love you. You went to the Bridge laying by my side. I know 24 years is a very long life for a cat but it is never enough time. My heart hurts and I miss you. Your sister Deb misses you very much.
Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. For those who love with their heart and soul there is no such thing as separation. Rumi You are loved forever my little girl.

I am so sorry for your loss. 24 years is remarkable but the pain is great. You must have many wonderful stories and memories you both shared.
Thank you for sharing Middies story. Hugs Cindy

I am so very sorry to read about Middie. What a sweet love story you described as Middie slowly let you into her life and finally showed you her trust and love by letting you hold her in her final days and hours...
It does not matter how long they are with us - it is never enough time. Still, 24 years is really special, especially for a cat. I am sure your household has a very different energy and feel to it now that Middie is gone. Again, so very sorry to hear about Middie. I hope you are eventually able to smile from deep within your heart as you reflect back on the wonderful 24 years the two of you shared... Hugs to you and your family... - Kelly Angel Blackie's mom Angel Squeeker's mom
