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.

    Very very sorry for your loss. We lost two fur friends in the last year and I realized how hard it is to share your grief with others over the loss of pets. Not that people aren’t sympathetic, but that there’s a feeling that you can only share so much of your grief about your “non-human” losses.

    So so sorry your Posey is gone. I prefer to think that they go on to really really wonderful places after giving us so much love in this life. Take care of you.

  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.

  155. Poesy was lucky to have been loved by you. It is never easy to
    lose one of our furkids. Thoughts are with you……

    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!

  307. Terribly sorry to hear about this. It took me a while to respond because I went to cuddle the dogs for a while.

    Side note: You have a lovely singing voice. It’s clear from the video that Posey agreed.

I have no words for your sad. But will be thinking of you.

    i’m so sorry Jenny 🙁 Having lost more than my share of four foots in my life… i know how hard it is. Those little fuzzy feet leave gaping holes in our hearts.

    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.

    i know it’s cold comfort right now… but Posey had a lovely life, and that long life is a testament to your love and care you took of him. Remember those good times.

  503. So, so sorry Jenny. Losing a pet, especially one you’ve had for a long time, is just as devastating as losing a human family member – particularly if you tend to turn to your pets for comfort. Who will comfort you, when the one you usually turn to is gone? I hope your human family and Ferris Mewler give you lots of love and support to help you through the worst of it. *Hugs*

  504. I am so sorry. That is just so very hard.

  505. I’m so, so sorry. My dogs are getting really up there in age, and every day I’m terrified that the older one is just going to suddenly stop breathing. The death of a pet is so unbelievably hard.

    I’m not a hugger so I won’t send one but maybe a salute to Posey and all other furry soldiers will suffice.

  516. From one cat-lover to another, I feel for you and your family right now. You are wonderful to take care of your pets with such love and affection. Hugs to you and prayers to Posey.

I learned it in elementary school (we had a Mexico Program one year… which was even more hilarious since we didn’t have a single hispanic person in our entire school – elite white kids!).

It was obvious how much you adore posey in your posts. I really hope you are ok, what a horrible end to a shitty day! I’ll be thinking of you and cuddling my Lola to bits tonight! xoxo

    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….

  651. So sorry to hear this… losing a furbaby just stinks. If Posey won’t mind that my fur people are of the canine variety, I’ll be sure to give them extra kibble and butt rubs tomorrow.

  652. There are no words to express the sadness that you and your family must be feeling. I am so sorry for your loss. The worst part of having a pet is having to say goodbye when they leave us. Just know that Posey is in a better place now.

  653. I am very sorry for your loss. Reading your stories about Posey made it obvious the love you had for him.

    Oh sadness, Jenny! Hearts (fuzzy, finny, and fleshy) are all sending you happy memory vibes. xxx

    I’m so, so sorry for your loss. I don’t have a furry friend so I’m sending the hugs your way.


  657. I am so sorry for your loss. It doesn’t matter how long they have been with you, losing a pet hurts. Sending you love and healing thoughts. Gotta hug my fur kids now…

  658. I’m so sorry for your loss, Jenny. I know how hard it is to lose a fur baby. They are a part of our families. Sending you cyber (((hugs))).

    Hugs for you and hugs for my Zappa dog.

  660. a Hello Kitty Bandaid for your heart

  661. *hugs you tight* I’m so sorry. But if you’re lucky, Posy will hang around as a non-corporeal entity. Some of our cats did, to hang with the ghost cats that were already there when my parents moved in.

    People think I’m joking about things like this. I’m really not.

    However, I am so so sorry for your loss. Posy was an awesome person in this world, and whatever world he’s in now, he’ll be awesome there too.

    I hate death. It sucks. But I love cats and I love you even though you don’t even know me. So…much much much love for you and Posy.

  662. So sorry to hear of your loss Jenny. Sending you loads of hugs from Australia. Now I’m off to hug my furballs, Zac & Sebastian.

  663. I’m so sorry Posey passed away. My deepest sympathies. I’ve had my cat, Arwen, since she was 5 weeks old, she’s my furry daughter.

  665. Just sad probably does not begin to cover the feelings of losing Posey. Half your life and all of Posey’s. All of us (out here in cyber world) are feeling our own versions of losing Posey today. When you are ready, we do want to hear your version, funny or not.
    We all love you, A LOT. (some of us a little too much . . . )

    Loosing an animal if rough. Sending thoughts.

  687. Oh no- I’m so sorry for the loss of Posey. Glad you shared your kitty and song again- it was very cute. Posey will always be on the web 😉

  688. I’m so sorry about Posie. My sweet kitty, Willie J. Blackfoot Ewing sat up very tall and listened and watched intently when I played Don Gago and I got teary. He gets it too.

    I did just as you said and gave my kitten Jade a good long pet today. I know in my heart that all fur babies go to heaven, and Posey is in a better place with all the catnip he could ever want. Sending you strength in your time of grief. I bet he lived a more interesting and exciting life as your kitten than most, lucky little guy 🙂

  690. I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve been there before an it’s alway hard. Thanks for sharing the video, Posey was a good sport. I remember the Senior Don Gato song fondly from when I was a kid, and I haven’t heard it anywhere since 3rd grade (and that was in 1970)!

    So sorry for your loss today… Many virtual hugs to you and your family.

  694. That video was one of the sweetest things I’ve seen & a perfect tribute to Possey. I’m so sorry for your loss! I will definately hug my fur babies a little tighter tonight & we will say a prayer for Possey & your family.

  695. Jenny, I am so sorry for your loss. The furry ones are sometimes the ardent to let go.
