WAFFLES: Hello, earth to Boss! Are you there, Boss? Come in, Boss.
WAFFLES: It's been two whole years since we had to say goodbye. I know Glogirly still really misses you, Boss. She says there will never be another cat like you.
I want you to know that the present you sent her has helped make her heart happy again. Ellie even looks a little bit like you, Boss. I told her she can't tell me what to do though because YOU'LL always be the Boss. But I've been teaching her stuff like how to watch the birds and bunnies, how to chase bugs. I even taught her how to play fetch and sit on Gloman's lap.
Sometimes I try to steal her breakfast, you know, like I used to do with you. And she even lets me, just like you did.
WAFFLES: I know you're not coming back, Boss. But this will always be your home and we'll always be your family.
PS - I'm still taking good care of your frog toy and the purple fuzzy heart.
In Glogirly's words...
Exactly two years ago we said goodbye to our sweet Katie girl. I think about her everyday as the wind softly blows through the pine trees and her wind chime sings its beautiful song.
I'm so grateful to have been able to share Katie with our friends and readers. When I'm missing her, I find so many wonderful memories though the pages of our blog and the kind comments left by so many of you.
Thank you for welcoming our sweet Ellie into your hearts and inboxes. She's pure joy and a such gift to our family. I think Katie is smiling.

Wow two years, time has flown by but it feels like yesterday when we heard about your sweet girl Katie. You gave her a fabulous life filled with love, and we were blessed to share her stories through your blog. We are glad that she sent you Ellie and that she is watching over all of you. XxxReplyDelete
I can't believe it's been two years. What a sweet post in her memory. Hugs to you as you remember your girl.ReplyDelete
Katie was special and we know you will always miss her but cherish her memory in your heart.ReplyDelete
We can't believe it's been that long. Sending hugs.ReplyDelete
Angel Katie, I saw you with my own eyes, while you hid in the closet to get away from the visitors. Waffles was so entertaining, but I wanted a few minutes alone with you, so I lay on the floor to speak softly to you.ReplyDelete
Purring for your pawrents and Waffles; they miss you.
Made me cry all over again. Hugs from all of us, or at least what is left of us, down from 9 kitties to 3.ReplyDelete
Sending gentle purrs and hugs as you remember Katie today.ReplyDelete
Sending purrs and hugs. Thanks for sharing Katie and the other kitties with us.ReplyDelete
I wish I had the eloquence of your ability with words to be able to express how heartbreaking it is to lose someone you don't know but you know so well. Each time it happens a piece of my heart shatters and pierces my soul. I know too well how these beautiful furry beings paw their way into our hearts with their unconditional love and proud conditional personalities. I miss my Angels, but especially my Abby. It's so unbelievable to see two years have passed since Katie had to leave you and all of us, she is missed, I know most by you and Gloman, but by us as well.ReplyDelete
Thank you Debbie for sharing with us your beautiful heart and your love for Katie. I think we can all relate. Much love to you and Gloman!ReplyDelete
Sending you hugs on this sad anniversary. XOReplyDelete

Beautiful Katie will forever be an inspiration--of wit, of beauty and compassion. I fell in love with her photos and posts, before Waffles joined the scene but after she was already a celbri-cat. Through my probing on the blog, I learned more about Glogirly and Gloman, Another Mother (the story) and then was introduced to many other cats of the blogosphere and their humans. But Katie was the window for all of that. Thank you for sharing her with us, and know that she remains with me--though she wasn't my girl, I did have the honor of spending some time with her at the Mountain House, and I'll treasure those visits. The Squeedunk Cats--those still here, and those who are angels, send lots of love and purrs your way as you reflect on those special moments, the stories you spun out of daily happenings and all the magical dust you've sprinkled through the voice of one sweet and sassy tuxedo cat.ReplyDelete
(((hugs)))) as you remember. Katie will never be forgotten.ReplyDelete

Forever in your and our hearts.ReplyDelete
My eyes are all wet, we all loved Katie so much and miss her. Hugs to all.ReplyDelete
