For Crockett


How do you say goodbye to a best friend? I don't know, but I do know I are tired of having to do it. Furst I had to say goodbye to Jezebel, I only knew her for a few months but I really luved her. She had a nice long life. Then I had to say goodbye to Maurice. That one hurt. He wuz a young mancat and wuz so sick. I also had to say goodbye to a woofie friend (yes, they really can be friends), Whitley. But this one hurts the most.
    

Crockett wasn't an old cat, he had just turned five. He wuzn't sick, he was so healthy. His momma thought she had at least another decade wif him. He wuz my best friend, we were always together. Playing, grooming each other, just napping together. We were pretty much inseparable. 


From the moment he came home five years ago, I luved him. He thought I wuz his momma at furst, he even checked out my belly for some milk. But even though I couldn't be his purrsonal milk bar, he followed me everywhere.


He wuz such a happy and funny lil kitten.


Just look at that face, how could ya not be in luv. 


There wuz somefin about his fur, maybe it wuz that ticked quality, he glowed in the sun.


He luved everyone - me, Angelique, the mommas, his daddy, even those silly dogs. 


He wuz his momma's shadow and followed her everywhere.


Ya couldn't look at him and not smile. 


His razzberries made him famous in da Cat Blogosphere - whether it wuz porno tongue or church tongue, Crockett had a razz for ya.


We will miss him so much.


We're wearing orange in his honor today. Momma even made me and Angelique new orange bandanas.


Da mommas (and grandpa too!) are all dressed in orange today. 


Rest in peace sweet Crockett, we'll miss you. We'll never forget you. We luv you furever and ever.

Crockett was such a cute kitten, and an adorable young mancat. The kitten photo that you captioned about his cute face, I also see some very cute kitten paws! And he still has his spikey kitten furs. Such a sweetie. We're keeping you in our thoughts and sending healing purrs your way.

We wore orange today in honor of sweet Crockett and everywhere we visited EVERYONE was doing the same. Crockett was loved by all of us for his sweet face and personality. We know you all miss him like crazy and we all will. We will always and forever remember him. Angel Sammy whispered in my ear that Angel Crockett is happy and doesn't want you all to feel bad because he had the BEST life EVER with all of you and will watch over you always. Mom and I sent you hugs.

Love, Teddy

Mara said...

We think that orange is the bestest colour in the whole wide world! We love it so much, our royal house named themselves the House of Orange!!! So, Crockett knew what he was about.

It must be really hard without Crockett and not just on the two-leggers. Four-leggers can miss their friends just as much. Wishing you so much strength.

Crockett was so well loved - all the tributes for him were so special. I'm still heartbroken about him being gone, just like everybody else.

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

We're crying lots of tears right now. We're so sorry we couldn't participate in wearing orange. Our mom was away. Even though we didn't blog that day,Crockett was in our thoughts and we were sending you all love and hugs.

The Island Cats said...

I understand what you are going through, Travis. I had to say goodbye to my buddy, Wally, just a few months ago. He'd always been here...all 13 years of my life, and I miss him very much. Just like you'll miss Crockett. Crockett was a great cat, a great friend...his time here was too short. I send you a gentle headbutt to help ease your sadness. ~Ernie

I'm sorry I'm so late at paw penning a comment here. Mom is still away on vacation and says wifi signal is almost nill and void (whatever that means) where she's at. I have been very sad since I learned that my furriend Crockett went OTRB. It is just not fair that our furriends have to leave us. I was so hoping to see more of Crocket and his wonderful raspberries and his poses in his bandanas. When Mom gets back from her trip, I'll put on a bit of orange in honor of Crockett. Kisses of for you and your family from me and mine. -Valentine (Noir Kitty Mews)
