This weekend is EXTRA special! We’re linking up our beloved pets today in honour of Teddy. who passed on this week.
Teddy had the coolest quirks!
She sat on the back of my office chair each night. I loved feeling her fur against my head.
She use to wait on my pillow until I lifted the covers, so she could cuddle up against me, buried deep beneath the blankets. No idea how she breathed but she loved it! Me too!
She would only drink water outside. True story. I even tried ice cubes indoors but no go. Her favourite place to drink was in an antique milking machine which filled with rainwater. Her little moss covered stump gave her the extra padded lift she loved.
But oh my did she TALK. If cats had only a set amount of meows, she ran out the first year I had her. Part of it was an overactive thyroid, but she’s always been vocal anyway.
She had this little distinctive meow that was silent. If she was very happy and just wanted to say hello back when you pet or talked to her, she’d let out a little silent meow that sounded more like “eh!” SO CUTE! i use to talk more to her just so I could hear it. 🙂
She earned her nickname monkey by not only her dark little face, she use to race around like a teenager well in her later years. She was a kook!
Teddy’s favorite pillow was this rather ugly fuzzy thing I found at the thrift store. I picked it up because it felt like cat fur. Both my cats fought over it to sleep on. That ugly fuzzy pillow means more to me now than you’ll ever know.
Teddy was actually an indoor cat. It was only when I moved to this place she had a desire to peek outside. Being extremely timid, she’d dash in the house the moment she’d hear a noise. But when I went for a wander out back, she always raced to keep up with me. She loved her little meadow walk.
She never left my side. I’ll simply miss her until the end of time.
This linkup is not only to honour her, but it’s to honour your own pets as well. How many think to do an intentional photo shoot of their pets? Probably not often. I’m encouraging you today to do just that. Take the time for some super nice shots so you have them forever.
Teddy’s last shoot was the day before she passed. You can see her HERE in the video I made for her at her favourite creek out back. You guessed it… she went there to drink!
Thank-you for being here today in honour of my girl.
And now it’s your turn. I cannot wait to see your own sweet pets and hear about how much they mean to you!
