(March 1992 – July 26, 2005)
What a terrific cat! I couldn’t ask for any better. I got you as a baby kitty. Your
fur colors reminded me of a Nestle Crunch bar. We grew up together and shared
many years together. We played so much. I always loved to see my kitty in the
window. Oh how you loved to sit in the window. And in the winter, you sat right
in front of the heater vent absorbing all of the heat.
I remember when you knew the sound of the can that had your treats in it. I
would shake it and you would come running. Even if I said or spelled the word
POUNCE, you knew I was getting you some treats.
Every night when I came home I found you downstairs waiting right there for me.
You were always there for me. Nestle, I could always count on you being there
by my side in the same room with me watching and waiting for word, a pet, or
look over from me. You got me through some hard times in my life. For a while
there it was just you and me.
Then later on in your life, I got you a new mommy. You loved her as much as
me. You gave here such joy and happiness. You made my wonderful wife feel so loved. She loves you as much as I love you. I know she misses you. She is
going to miss you sitting on her lap every night before bed waiting for pets and
combing or lying on her nightstand under the reading light sleeping by her side.
And remember playing hide and go seek with her? What fun that was.
I could always tell you were happy by your purring. I always looked for the little
twitch of your tail. It was so cute to see your tail twitch when we talked to you.
It makes me laugh remembering how much you liked your cat carrier box. You
never put up a fight when the times came to go in the box. You even traveled in
the car and didn’t even complain.
You never gave us any trouble. All you wanted in return was a little love and
petting. I miss you Nestle!
I feel so bad that you got diabetes. It really took a lot out of you. I always wished
I could make my kitty better again. I couldn’t bear to see you suffer and not be
able to enjoy life the way you did before diabetes. I hope that now wherever you
are Nestle you feel better and are back to your old self. I hope you are able to
enjoy life the way you used to. Hopefully there is a window there for you to jump
up into and sunlight shining in on my beautiful little cat.
I love you Nestle so very much. You will always have a special place in my heart
and in my memories. Thank you for 13.5 wonderful years my little “piece.” I wish
we could have had more time together. Someday we will be together again.
All our love,
Shawn and Mary Beth
