Tobey






Today I lost my good buddy Tobey. He was such a good little cat. He was always there to inspect every bit of my sewing (It's really hard to cut out around a swishing tail.) He was also very playful. He loved to play soccer with hair rubberbands, and his favorite game was "fetch". He'd bring a rubberband and throw it in my lap (Or most often, on my pillow at 2 a.m.) and want me to throw it for him. Thus the game would begin. Tobey used to like me to carry him wrapped around my neck, like a fur collar. I would say that he was my favorite fashion accessory. He was only 3 years old. I'm so sad.

Oh, Nancy, I'm so sorry!

We haven't had kitties for almost 10 years now, we've moved twice and still every once in a while I'll think I'll see one of them out of the corner of my eye.

(and we're still finding cat hair in the occasional odd spot)

Oh! I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Tobey! Loosing a beloved pet is so hard, no matter how old they are, but especially when they are so young.

Nancy, I'm so sorry to hear about Tobey. I had a kitty-collar once named Sam who helped me sew. He's been gone for years and I still miss him. Tobey was a lucky cat to have you.

Nancy - I can only imagine how difficult it is to lose a beloved pet so young. My heart breaks for you.

I'm so sorry to hear about Tobey. We lost a cat in 12/06 (Riff looked a lot like Tobey - except for the white patches) and I still miss him. It's amazing how animals become members of our families.

Dear Nancy, I'm so sorry for you, Tobey look like such a great cat and I know how it feels to loose a pet... It must be a really sad time for you and my heart goes out to you.

I'm so sorry. Three years is just not long enough for him to be gone already.

Oh, I'm so sorry! He was such a cute kitty, too. I've had to go through this a few times and it doesn't get any easier.

Vicki said...

This is the second sad cat story I have heard today. DD's teacher's cat disappeared. And this was a young cat that was also loved very much.

Sorry to hear about Tobey!

So sorry to hear about the loss of Tobey, and so young too. I am thinking of you. It is always difficult to lose a loved pet but to lose one so young is absolutely heartwrenching. I sincerely hope that Tobey didn't suffer.

I am so sorry, Nancy. Losing a kitty we love is so, so hard. And he was so young. Take your time to heal. You'll be in my thoughts.
