My Kitty



For my 13th birthday, my parents got me a kitten, who we named Snickers. We brought her home in a laundry basket in the backseat of our minivan. For the first few weeks, Snickers stayed in my room, and would wake me up in the middle of the night, mewling for me to pick her up and put her on the bed. When I went away to college, Snickers stayed with my parents, and I looked forward to seeing her every time I went back home.

Yesterday morning Snickers passed away at the age of 17. She was a sweet cat, and I can't think of anything mischievous that she ever did (unlike my cat Kiska, who added eating all my pepper plant seedlings to her list of misdeeds this week). She was quiet and sneaky, but always left reminders of her presence on all of our clothes in the form of long, white hairs. Thanks for spending your life with us. We'll miss you, Snick.

I'm so sorry, Sarah. Losing a pet is so hard. She looks like she was very loved.

I am sorry so sorry for the loss of your beloved Snickers. She was beautiful! What breed was she?

Like Kiska, my cat also has taken to snacking on my pepper seedlings. If you are interested, I always plant a bunch of extras. I have lemon pepper, bell peppers, and jalapenos. Let me know.

What a beautiful kitty! And like me, it looks like she loved to curl up (and fall asleep) with a good book ;)

I can only imagine how much you must miss her....

Such a sweet kitty face! My little dog who lives with my parents is such a little old lady right now (she is 16), and my folks are worried that she doesn't have much longer. It is hard to loose pets to old age, because they become such a part of your family! Condolences, Sarah.
