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.

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!

Thank you very much for the kind words. I really do appreciate it.

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.

What a lovely memorial of her at the gravesite, Jeffrey! :2huggers:

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!

6 long months ago today, my sweet little girl was taken away. Itís been miserable without her by my side. I miss her like crazy.

I love you dearly, Dooders!

The time passes so quickly. :( How are her flowers doing?

Lady G was a beautiful gal. Jeffery your Roses brought some tears to my eyes thinking of your gal. I planted some white Roses in 1999.. My Dad passed away the later part of summer of 1999. On the day he passed my roses bloomed. I was fortunate enough to have 3 gorgeous blooms on the day he died and they were the first and the last for some reason. The rose bush died and never bloomed again. I was blessed to bury him with those 3 gorgeous roses. They were full , white and absolutely beautiful.
I am sure Lady G is looking down very proud of you and never forgetting her memory.

Her roses seem to be doing very well, and each bush has produced a lot of roses so far. There are tiny buds on them now that will soon bloom. I am very thrilled about that. I pray they continue to be healthy and produce beautiful roses for as long as the earth exists. :D

Awww, thank you very much for the kind words, Cindy. Even though it has been many years ago, I am truly sorry to hear about your father. It's awesome that you were able to place some beautiful roses n his grave that you grew yourself. You will never forget that. My father means the world to me. He and I have gotten along our entire lives. We're best friends. He is having some health issues now, in fact, we just came home yesterday from a weeks stay in the hospital. I was actually still there when I posted here yesterday. Praying he gets better soon. I love him dearly!:pray:

Again, thank you two very much.:grouphug:

hazelrunpack July 16th, 2019 09:20 AM

Praying your Dad is better soon, Jeffrey. :goodvibes: Sounds like you two have a very special relationship.

Now 7 long, hard months without my sweet, little girl. Been looking at some of her videos and pictures. She was so much fun, y'all. I know I keep repeating myself, but she was such a precious little soul. Lord is my witness, I think of her every single day. She was the best!

Here's another short video of her. She loved hanging out in those azalea bushes, on that porch, or at the base of that oak tree. She had her special spots she liked to get away to when she wanted to rest. You'll hear me calling her a few of the crazy nicknames I called her. :laughing:

LOL She was tired in the picture below, but I kept pestering her by taking pictures. She was so much fun.

I'm so glad your memories are giving you some smiles these days!

Loved the video! I'm impressed--she actually came to you when called! :D What a good girl! And what a testimony to your relationship!

Thanks, hazelrunpack. Most of the time when I would go outside, or come home, she would hear or see me and come running to me without ever needing to call for her. And gosh, I miss that so much. She knew I loved her dearly, and she made me feel just as special. She followed me all over the place.

Thanks again.

Jeffrey In USA September 14th, 2019 09:36 AM

8 long months without her. She's dearly missed! Dearly loved!

Thank you. Roses seem to be doing well. It has been extremely hot here for over 2 months, but still growing roses. Had 3 pink roses bloom within a week recently. Haven't had any red roses bloom in over a month.

Thanks again, y'all. :grouphug:
