The dirt is still on my shoes from burying you. Erin and I picked a great spot for you in the backyard where it’s sunny most of the day. We think you’ll like it there.

You were a great friend. I remember taking naps and waking up to you on my chest, purring your little heart out. Other times, when I was sleeping on my side, I’d find you curled up in a ball near my chest where it’s warm. You loved to rub up against our oldest dog, Sage. You two were quite a pair.

You loved to chase plastic caps all over our house. I still expect to hear the sound of a cap flying across the floor in the other room and you running after it to pounce. Erin and I are saving the caps we find around the house to remember you by.

You were the kind of cat that cat-haters like. Erin and I never liked cats (and probably still don’t) until you came into our lives. You were so sweet and cute. You actually came when you were called. If I yelled out from the bedroom, Nutkin!, you’d come running and hop up onto the bed. I’m really going to miss that.

When I woke up this morning, I had no idea I’d be saying goodbye to you today. Erin and I wish we could have just one more day with you, and it’s excruciating that we cannot. The only solace we have right now is that we gave you a great little life and you will be the source of many great memories as we go through the rest of our lives.

I love you, Nutkin. Goodnight.

  1. I am so sorry to hear about Nutkin. She truly was the coolest little cat I have ever met, and she will be missed. You guys gave her a wonderful life, and she was very lucky to have you for her family. I hope she is somewhere having a ball chasing little plastic caps right now.

  2. I don’t even know how I found this site but Nutkin looks exactly like my cat Clancy. And Clancy spends hours and hours chasing around little plastic caps, all day and all night.
    Sorry for you loss.
