Posey

Posey died today.  If you’ve been here long enough you already know that he was a special little person in a fur suit and I’ve had him for almost half of my life.

I’m too sad to write about him right now so instead I’m posting a video we once made together for some orphans in Africa.  It’s sort of a long story.  Much like Posey’s life.

Please go and hug your little friends a little tighter for me.

  154. Hi,
    I have angel cats. Their mother was a pregnant stray who showed up the day my carpool partner collapsed in her front yard and feel into a coma. (Complications of high-dose chemo for cancer.) She died five days later.
    And that mother cat’s kittens helped me and my kids and her kids laugh, especially in the first year after she died, so they are truly angel cats, as I’m sure your beautiful baby was.

    A friend of mine swears that if you ask your lost babies to come back to you, in new bodies, they will. Just ask, like you’re saying a prayer. And watch and wait and be open to the signs. They will come back.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Posey! I just started reading your blog about a year and a half ago – right around the time I took in a friend’s 15 year old cat, Oliver. I read about all the old posts about Posey (him making everyone think he was dead by sleeping with his eyes open, being nothing but fur and sinew, etc) and I thought – this is my new cat! I didn’t think I’d come to love him very much. It was going to be more like running kitty hospice care, right? Oh wow, not at all. This wheezy, sinewy, sweet old man has wormed his way into my heart like I never would have believed. I have to pick my way through fresh gifts of vomit and hairballs every morning, but…well, ick, sorry. Every time I read a new Posey post, I just loved my old cat a little more. And when Oliver does die, I’m going to go and read all those Posey posts AGAIN and laugh and cry and be happy for the time I had with him. Love and good thoughts to you!

    i did hug my fuzzy baby very tightly after reading this… and she thumped her tail very angrily against my legs, but she put up with it. Then when i started to let her go, she pretty much launched herself across the room and gave me this glare of DOOM. And my face and shirt were *covered* in long fine grey Maine Coon Boo-hair. But i wouldn’t have it any other way, really.

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

    When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
    There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
    There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

    All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
    The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

    They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

    You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

    Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

    I’m so sorry to hear about Posey. My cat of 17 years died in May of just being damn old. He had the same thyroid problem your kitty had. My cat’s name was Baby Kitty. My brother named him when he was 3 or 4. My family identified so much with you and your love for Posey. We even called him Posey as a nickname sometimes. The pain does go away. And the sadness that you feel is probably mixed with relief that he’s no longer suffering and the sadness that no cat will ever take his place. I’m terribly sorry to hear of his passing. I’m just very happy for you that you have videos to remember him by
    We are all thinking of you today.

I like to think (though I don’t really believe it) that he made sure I got my next cat before he went so that I and his buddy would have a distraction. She’s sure proven to be that!

As I know you did with Posey – you had a bunch of the same ‘false starts’ as we have. The best I can do, which you did as well, is let these furry little monsters know that they are loved and that they are welcome. And to thank them for how warm, loving and furry they made our lives.

    And at the same time, remind yourself how rich and wonderful you made Posey’s life compared to so many wild, un’owned’ and shelter cats and take solace in how happy you made him.

  854. Ooooh, Jenny, I am so very very sad for you. I put down my beloved Cody who had been my best friend in a fur suit for 12 years (Rottweiler, not cat) last Monday and I’m still waking up with my face covered in tears. I know they say the pain eventually changes but they can suck it because it hurts RIGHT. FUCKING. NOW.
