I thought it would be nice to start a thread and share some of our favourite things about our babies. Whether it’s a memory, a habit or just something about them and their personality. We spend so much time feeling sad and down I think it’s important to talk about the good times as well.

My favourite thing about my baby Hurley was the way he looked into my eyes, like he was reading my soul. He would stare at me for minutes on end, we had such a strong bond. Also, every time I came home from work or wherever, he would be waiting at the door with a shoe or a sock in his mouth as a gift for me and would be bursting with excitement. Oh and his colour, a beautiful salt and pepper coat with patches of white on his chest, chin and feet. I could go on for a while, but I will keep it at this for now.

Please share your memories if you are up to it, I would love to read them.

With Squeeker, I loved his deep, resonant purr. It was so strong, even one of his cancer vets commented on it the first time he met Squeeker. And he would let me hold him in my arms and just look into my eyes nonstop. None of my other cats let me hold them in my arms the way Squeeker did. He had the softest fur and it was so wonderful to pet him and feel how silky smooth it was. I also miss taking him for walks in the nearby park. The park had hiking trails and Squeeker just loved going for walks on the trails. He would rub up against my leg every other step and meow in delight. I miss these things so much...

I miss how Blackie would greet me at the door whenever I came home. He was such a good boy - I could leave the door to my deck open and trust that Blackie would go out on the deck and not try to escape. He was so good on a leash - he was the first cat I had that I could take for walks around the townhouse complex I lived in at the time - I really loved our outdoor walks together. Blackie had the raspiest meow - so unique and no other cat I've had has had a meow quite like it. Blackie would also wake me up in the morning if I hit the snooze button one too many times by gently washing my face with his tongue. Sometimes he would even wash my eyelids, LOL! He was so very gentle when he did that, and that was one of the things I missed the most after he passed away - waking up to his gentle way. And I miss falling asleep with him snuggled up against my back.

Oh how I missed my beautiful, precious Blackie - he has been gone for well over 10 years but I still miss everything about him so very much...

I think for me, when I think about Thomas, I think about his very loud, demanding, sometimes annoying meow. He was definitely a cat that made his presence known, and that was usually by his meow, LOL! I also loved - and miss - how he would really want to snuggle with me. He did not necessarily curl up in my lap, but he wanted to be nearby and he was constantly offering head butts to me. Sometimes his persistent head butts annoyed me, sometimes it did not, but oh what I would give to hear his meow and be on the receiving end of his head butts one more time...

Miss you Thomas - hope you are happy up in heaven and have been reunited with Mary...

With Midnight, it was the way she would always bark me when I came in from my morning coffee to tell me it was time for a treat.  She would get so excited when I would announce, "Who wants a treat?"  Then she'd take it and run off and jump on the couch to eat it.

My Dante was an endless giver and such a gentle soul. My favorite memory is just walking into a room and always having him look at me, glad I was there. Every single time.
I lost him just this morning, my rooms are so quiet now, but I will always remember his sweet face.

With Rufus, it was always his deep, robust, resonant purr. He always purred for me no matter what. When he stopped purring the night before he passed away, I knew we were coming to the end of our time together.

He was also such a chow hound. Loved food no matter what. I had to be really careful to not leave my food unattended. If I turned my back he would always get up on the table where my plate was and eat whatever was left on it before I returned, LOL.

Rufus was the friendliest cat ever. Whenever people would come over, he would always want to literally be in the middle of all of the activity. The last time I had somebody over they were sitting in an easy chair in my living room. Rufus just went right up to the person, jumped up on the chair and settled in next to him. What a sweet, sweet boy he was...

And he was always so well behaved. One time I mistakenly left him out in my back yard with the fence open. I did not realize what I had done until an hour later. I was positive he had taken off and had gone missing. But no - when I went out to the back yard and called for him, he was right there enjoying his time outdoors. He came running up to me when I called him, and after that I knew I never had to worry that he would run away.

He was so special. It isn't fair he is gone. I miss him so very much...

Like so many of you, I have so many "favorite" memories.  From or normal routines at bedtime to our morning routines.  She trained with me to do my first 5K -- she didn't miss a workout -- and she was a 10-pound Maltese bichon so looking back she had to a lot of love and willpower.

But, my standout memory might not seem believable but 100% is.  When my youngest son still lived with us he worked out a lot--weight lifting.  Apparently, lifting too heavy can cause testicular torsion.  It causes severe pain and swelling.  My son ended needing emergency surgery. 

We were sleeping.  Jasmine woke me up and was frantic.  I thought she needed to go outside so I tried to take her out but she kept going to the stairs and barking.  I wasn't as intuitive as Jasmine and got frustrated that she was acting so crazy and wouldn't calm down so I left her there and went to bed.  She kept running from me to the stairs barking.  After doing this for a while I finally let her go upstairs and she raced up to my son's room, checked on him, and raced from his door toward me barking.  Finally, I went upstairs to bring her back downstairs and finally saw that my son was in distress.  He was in so much pain he could barely talk, and certainly could not yell loud enough to wake us up.  But, somehow she knew he needed help.  We've thanked her so many times for protecting him.  If left too long he might not have been able to have kids.

I'd love to keep sharing favorite memories.  RIP sweet Jasmine.  You were our protector.  I know you'll continue protecting us if you are able.
