I can’t believe you’re not here. I look for you, desperately praying that this is a nightmare I’ll soon wake from and there you will be with that sweet face and little meow to reassure me that everything is all right and you’re still with us.
Every single day for the past fifteen years you blessed our lives with your abundance of personality. Your well-timed meows to express your opinion during conversations. Your back talk when you got into trouble for bothering your sister, who didn’t appreciate your attention. Your couch companionship while we watched television and the unexpected twenty pounds of kitty landing on me when I would nap as if to say – here I am. Pay attention to me now. There was laughter every day because of you – which has now been replaced by unimaginable sadness and emptiness.
Rest now our sweet boy. The pain and suffering are over for you. No more can cancer hurt you. Thank you for making every day for the past fifteen years the best of our lives. We love you, Jake more than words can convey, and will miss you every single day of the rest of our lives. Play now on the other side of the rainbow bridge with your brothers, Brinkley and Rudy.
RIP our sweet baby boy.
