Goodbye K.C. Kitty


For 14 years, K.C. was a part of my life. 6 apartments, 3 cities, 2 wives, 2 kids, a dog and a house. That’s a lot for an animal to put up with, but she did. And she did it with style. She never got mad and peed in the corner. She never swatted at the kids when they pulled her tail. And when we moved to Phoenix and she took a plane ride, she went without much whimpering.

14 years is a long time with one pet. And I had 2. Now K.C. is gone and I feel a little heartbroken. She was a good pet. I remember when me and my ex went to find a kitten and I picked her up. It was love at first sight. I couldn’t just take her though. Bootsie whined until we took her too. It was the best thing we could have done. Later, after we brought them home, they both had little bells on their collars and around 3 in the morning they would be chasing after each other, making all kinds of a racket.

After my first marriage, I moved into several different apartments. One of my favorite things at my first apartment by myself was to lay on my couch with the windows open, petting K.C., listening to her purr and hear the church bells in the distance. It will always be my favorite time with her. I wish we had bells here now. I think she would have liked to have heard them one last time.

Christopher cried when I told him the news. Ava is still too young to understand. But my basement is now a lot emptier without her. And so is my heart. I will never forget her.

We Love You, K.C. Kitty…rest in peace my, sweet kitten.

    I don’t even know what to say except I’m sorry and you did the right thing. Sometimes that is the hardest thing to do. Love you!

    I’m so sorry. It was very hard for me when I lost my 25 year old cat. She was the best pet I ever had and we had a real bond – she was “my” cat no matter what and I was “her” person, there was no question. All I can think of to say is sorry I was so late in my comment before but we can at least be thankful that we were able to give two beautiful felines love, warmth, and a steady food supply for so many years. Many don’t get that. Ours were lucky. Hugs to you.

    I’m sorry about your cat. I have three black cats that I adore but one especially is my boy, Yoda. He is 10. He actually belongs to my 26 year old son who is living out of state and I stole him from my son. I told my son he couldn’t take Yoda with him because I would be able to give him a better home. Thank goodness my son agreed. I’m disabled and home a lot and Yoda spends a good part of the day draped around my neck. He’s a dog in a cat suit and I dread the day he’s not with me.

    So I understand your loss. I would never have believed I could become so attached to a cat. May your K.C. Kitty rest in peace.
