In Loving Memory Of Lady G.

Hope it's okay for me to post this here, if not, I truly apologize. Just wanted to show all how much she meant to me, and how beautiful of a cat she was.

I'm devastated. I lost my sweet cat in the early morning hours of January 14, 2019. I was away when she was killed outside. I've had her for about 12 years, and man, this is killing me. She brought so much joy to my life. She was such an awesome cat. I couldn't do anything outside without her by my side. If she was off somewhere and heard me outside, she'd come running to me. We were best friends. She stayed inside and out. But she loved it outside, and I allowed her to be free, as a cat should be. She knew she was loved dearly. And I know she loved me too. I took good care of her. She was happy and full of life till the very end. She still loved to play and climb trees. Her and I had a lot of fun together. She always made me smile. She even made me cry when she was alive by simply looking at her, as I felt incredibly blessed to have her in my life. She was so beautiful and awesome! My life will never be the same without her. She was that special to me.

I miss that cute little dance she'd do at feeding time. She would always shake her tail when she was about to get fed, or simply when she was excited. I've never seen anything like it.

I miss those days and nights she slept by my side, hogging up the bed with her feet all over me.

I miss those crazy sharp claws digging into my legs, while she laid in my lap.

I miss her getting up on this desk and laying all over my keyboard and mouse cord, getting all in the way. She demanded attention, and I was happy to give it to her.

I miss talking to her. I talked to her all the time. She would even meow back in response. We may not have understood what each other was saying, but we always had each other to talk to.

I miss calling her all those nicknames I called her

I miss playing with her.

I simply miss everything about her. She was truly a special cat.

I thank the man above for blessing me with her in my life these past 12 years or so. She always put a smile on my face. When I was down, she was there to cheer me up. When I was sick, she knew it, and stayed by my side. I will never forget that. I love animals, and this cat meant the world to me. I will never forget her. I am truly heartbroken, and miss her dearly! God, I miss her so much!

Please, you all give your pet a hug and kiss for me. They truly are our best friends.

Thank you both for the kind words. I've cried thinking of her every single day, and for multiple times each day. I'm tearing up as I write this now. I'm sure I'll continue doing the same tomorrow.

Here's one of the last few videos I took of her. [URL="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5yBw1XJjyw"]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K5yBw1XJjyw[/URL] She's been in and out of that window a million times. I usually kept it open for her to come and go as she pleased. I absolutely worried about her being outside every time she was out there, but I wanted her to be able to live and be free, and enjoy her life as she wanted. She loved climbing trees and those wooden fence posts. Those posts have her claw marks all up and down them from the many years of climbing them. She was still so full of life till the very end. Heck, I thought she may actually outlive me. I would give anything to be able to pet and hold her again. Talk to her. Play with her. Cuddle with her. Watch her be silly. We were best of friends. I will carry her in my heart to my grave.

I lost my precious, Lady G., a month ago today, on January 14. I'm still hurting over her death. It's hard to even put into words how upsetting this has been for me, or how much she meant to me. I've only been this upset once in my life, and that was when my dear mother died. This has been an incredibly difficult thing for me to go through. Only those who have been through it, can fully understand. I know it's never easy to lose a loved one. Some just hurt us more than others. Lady G. was such a sweet, little friend / family member. I miss everything about her! Gosh, I miss her like crazy!

[B]Happy Valentines day, Lady G. I love and miss you dearly, girl![/B]

Thank you two awesome individuals very much! :grouphug:

Yes, I think writing about it can help some. I also go outside and kneel beside her grave every night and talk to her, tell her how much I love and miss her. I talked to her all the time when she was alive. Continuing to talk to her kind of helps too.

Again, thank you all very much for the kind words. And for allowing me to post a memorial of her here. It means a lot to me. She was special to me, and I want everyone to know it.

Jeffrey In USA February 20th, 2019 11:36 PM

Still missing my precious, little girl like crazy! Good gracious, I miss her so much! Still crying every day! Still hurting! I knew it was going to be difficult to ever lose her, and boy, I was right!

Here's another short video clip of my dear, little friend. Sorry, I can't figure out how to embed videos.

I love you, Lady G.!

So great that you have these videos - and yes, a link to Youtube is easiest.

It does get easier with time, but sometimes it takes quite a long while....around here...it's totally normal. :goodvibes:

Thank you two very much for the kind words, and your support during this difficult time. I do appreciate your kindness.:grouphug:

My heart still aches like crazy for my little girl. This has been brutal on me. It was a blessing, and an honor, having her in my life. And I'll proudly continue to tell the world about her, and how much she meant to me. It's the least I can do.

Hope y'all don't mind me sharing a few more videos of her. She loved to climb trees, wooden fence posts, up on the truck, and anything else around the house. Her and I had so much fun together. I miss all the simple, fun little things we used to do together.

[url]https://youtu.be/fRdQPBvjlkM[/url]

Here is another short video of her. And as usual, I am talking to her with a goofy voice. I used my iPad Pro to take this video, and at the time, she hadn't gotten used to me getting all up in her face with it, like I could with the phone. Plus, I have a bulky white protective case on it, so she was probably wondering what in the world I had in my hands. :laughing:

And this is for you, Lady G.

[url]https://youtu.be/tP-266rS994[/url]

I love you, punkin! For as long as I walk this earth, I will carry you in my heart. You will NEVER be forgotten! And I miss you dearly! I love you! I love you! I love you! Oh my goodness, I love you so much!

Two months ago today, my dear Lady G. was taken from me. These past two months have been filled with incredible sadness without my little girl. I am going about my daily life, functioning, but the pain is still very much there. I have smiled a few times the last couple of days or so, thinking of her, So that's good, I guess. We had such a wonderful life together. A life full of love, and precious memories, which I promise you, I will never forget. Lady G. was an angel.

Here are a few more memories of that precious, little girl. I just randomly picked a few. Wish I could post them all! LOL

3 months ago today, the most precious little girl in the world was taken from me. She was my world. My best friend. My little angel. There hasn't been a day go by that I haven't thought of her, and cried at least once. Even through all the pain, I still manage to occasionally smile while thinking of her, or while looking at her sweet photos and videos.

Thank you my dear Lady G., for filling my life with so much love and happiness. Thank you for choosing me to be your best friend. Thank you for all the beautiful memories you have given me, and for all the countless number of times you made me laugh and smile. Thank you for being my shadow, and following me all around the yard, hanging out with me, and for allowing me to take all those beautiful pictures and videos of you. Thank you for being the most awesome, most precious, and most loving cat in the world. Thank you for everything, Punkin'.

I love you and miss you soooooooooooooooooooo much!

I love cats, but I'm just not thinking of another one right now. I do believe there will be another one in my life some special day, though.

hazelrunpack April 15th, 2019 10:11 AM

Aw, another sweet picture! :cloud9: She was definitely a looker!

It's a hard decision to get another cat, especially after such a relatively short time, but I'm glad you're at least keeping that option open. You certainly were a loving owner to Lady G. Any kitty you adopt in the future will be so very lucky!

Thinking of you on this beautiful Easter day, Lady G. I love you and miss you very much!

Jeffrey In USA May 14th, 2019 07:21 PM

Four months ago today, you were taken from me. And it’s been a hard four months without you, Lady G. I've kept a few things the same around here for you. I still have the window screen up to where it was the last time you came through my window. I still even open the window for you every night I am home. I still keep that chair up next to the 4-wheeler so it’s easier for you to get up and down at my window. I still have that old chair at the back of the boat that made it easier for you to get in and out of. I still have your cat food, too, but plan to give it to the lady that you belonged to first. It’s just hard to give away something that was yours. I know you wouldn't mind, I've just got to bring myself to do it. Plus, we'd be helping her cat that you were friends with.

Lastly, on May 4th, I planted two cherry red Double Knock Out Rose bushes for you (one on each side of your grave). I am praying for them to grow successfully and produce tons of beautiful flowers for us, and hope they'll do so forever. You certainly deserve a beautiful grave site, punkin.

I love you Lady G.

Five months ago today, my dear Lady G. lost her life. I buried my little girl in my backyard, in front of a huge live oak tree. I knew that when the weather warmed up, I was going to try and make it look better around her gravesite. For all the love that she had shown me through the years, for all the smiles she put on my face, for all the times she made me laugh, and for all the wonderful memories she has given me, she deserves a beautiful resting place.

Back on May 4th, and after the weather had warmed up, I planted two cherry red Double Knock Out Roses next to her grave. And I am happy to report that the roses look to be growing very well, and have already produced several beautiful roses on each bush, with a few new buds now starting to develop again. I cannot even begin to describe how excited I was when the first tiny green rose buds appeared on those rose bushes. And the excitement level kicked up a notch when I started seeing a small amount of red peeking through them. Several days had passed by, and then one morning I woke up and looked out the window and saw one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen- a tiny, red rose. All from the first rose bush I've ever planted. In a location I was told they would never grow. The next morning I got up and looked out the window at her gravesite, as I do every morning, and I be darn if there wasn't another tiny rose on display. And for the next few days or so, a few more roses appeared (seven total). By the way, that's a picture of one of my roses at top. Yíall have no idea how happy this has made me for Lady G.

On June 4, I bought a 1-gallon Pink Double Knock Out Rose, and planted it between the first two red rose bushes. So far, it seems to be growing well. And I do see some buds starting to develop on it. I'm very excited and canít wait to see some beautiful pink roses appear. Lady G. had a pink nose, so I knew I had to plant some pink roses, too. Of course, I still want to plant some white flowers at some point, to match her white fur.

Today, June 14, 2019, I planted some grass seed out there. I hope it will come up and grow nicely for her. It was mostly dirt out there, with a few patches of grass and weeds, so hopefully it will start looking a whole lot better out there before long.

I have to admit, I've really enjoyed myself being out there around her, doing all of this for her. I even told her she was going to have to help me grow things, because I needed all the help I could get. I donít know much about flowers or how to go about growing and taking care of them, but I've been reading a lot of articles and watching videos, trying to learn all I can. No doubt that helped me with the roses. Our work is not done yet, though. I may not succeed in the long run, but I am certainly going to try. I must do so for her.

I miss you dearly, Lady G. Love you, punkins!
