Cat memorial. Fluffy

Fluffy was about 10 months old when we found him.  Coming home from a friends house one night on October 16th 1996, my daughter heard his meowing in the alley.  We went to see what happened, and there he was. Just one beautiful kitten who followed us around.  My son went in to get his dad, who came out and said, “oh no, not another.”  Fluffy instantly took to him, but thinking he belonged to someone, we went inside, giving him a chance to go home.  The kids went to bed, and the weather began to change.  It began to get very windy outside.  My hubby (with a huge heart) looked out the side door, and there was Fluff, stuck in the bushes. He opened the door and immediately brought him in.

When the kids woke in the morning, they were surprised and very happy to have cat #3.  My daughter named him immediately “FLUFFY”   He had an infection, and we got him to the vet, checked out and on the right medication to help.  He needed lots of fiber in his diet to help with the IBS.  Little by little, he got better. He loved his “forever home”, and we all loved him.  Fluffy was a little spit fire.  He ran, he jumped and he did tumbles beyond belief.  Stashia Louise and Princess (his newly found sisters) were totally amazed.  Fluff always kept his girls in line, but Princess was his main girl.

They “slept together” Yeah!  True love.  When Princess passed, Fluffy’s problems began. He searched for her day and night  He truly felt the loss.  He became stressed when we took in a stray and brought in my friends two cats (because she passed away).  He never did take to his new cat family. He developed bladder stones and one in the kidney.  He had kidney disease.  Had surgery at the age of 18 to have calcium oxalate stones removed, only to have bladder cancer take him on March 12, 2015.  He was 19 years young.  My heart will never be the same without him. He will be cremated, rather than buried next to the girls (because of the frozen ground).  He will rest next to them at a later date.  He was my heart! – See more
