I have a hole in my heart

That is the only way I can explain it. I have a hole in my heart and an emptiness in my soul.

As soon as you adopt a living being you are responsible for its life. Food,water,care, love ....that is on your shoulders.

You don't decide that you un-adopt a pet just because it doesn't live to your expectations....

14 years ago, I got a request to adopt a kitten and I turned it down. I felt I had good reasons, we already had 4 cats...That was on a Saturday, 2 days later, the woman who adopted him called and said I don't want him, he's too needy, he wants too much attention.

So after work  on that same Monday we drove all the way to St-Eustache and got that unwanted kitty.

We named him Billy Bob (Bob for short) and the rest is history....

Bob loved to be outside, even in the snow.

                                          Bob with his special lady friend Peanut (Pinotte)

                                          He didn't find this hat too amusing.....

He loved to explore new places, like new furniture

                                          He too, loved glassware....

So after 14 glorious years, we had to send Bob back to his maker....He was feeling poorly and wasn't enjoying life as much. I am sure that mice and chipmunks in the neighborhood are celebrating because he was quite the hunter!

                               You will be dearly missed, my dear Bob. Who will bite my nose at night and snuggle real tight? You are an excellent cat, fly free and say hi to Pinotte (Peanut)

RIP Bob 2001-2015

Tears! I am so sorry but Bob is now happy and snuggling with Peanut I'm sure!

So sorry you lost your Bob! I learned how hard it is to say good-bye to our fur babies when I lost my Maddie. Hopefully soon, your heavy heart will be filled with smiles when you remember him. :)
