Homage to Tiki: Day 1… The final goodbye!


This the tenth day of my homage to our little 19 year old kitty Tiki who passed away this last December 23, 2011 at about 10:50am. We miss her like there is a piece of us missing. She was the glue that held me together as well as our household. She was a survivor from the first breath of life which was breathed into her by Jason who found her 20 minutes after he thought the birth was over. She was born not breathing and he cleared her mouth and in his hands cupped her whole head and breathed…. And then, she started to breathe. She died in his arms like she was born. We told her how much we loved her and that it was ok. To be brave.

I wish someone was telling me the same thing. Bravery to find a place to bury her. Bravery to grieve her. Bravery to emergency rescue another sweet dear kitty from sure death at 3pm on christmas eve. She gave up her life just in time for us to save little Arthur. We love you Tiki. We will NEVER FORGET YOU!! Thank you for all of your love and the scars too! We do so miss you. Rest in peace little one!

Our new little Arthur. The light in the darkness. We are blessed. 🙂

  1. Sorry for your loss.
    This reminds me of my cat Annie that died almost 4 years ago. She was a grey tabby.I still cant believe it. She was only 13 and it wasn’t until she started having breathing problems that I found out she had an abnormal heartbeat and that her heart was not fully grown which is why she never got much bigger then a kitten. But she acted like she was a tiger. She played hard and didnt know to let go when she attacked my hands. I loved that cat so much. My husband found her and gave her to me before we were married. At first we used to have to hide our hands and feet under the covers and not move EVER!! Or else she would attack. Yet, she would follow me around constantly and want me to carry her over my shoulder like a baby, but only as long as I would walk around with her. As soon as I sat down, she’d leave.

    • damn those kitties are the shit! I miss my sasha who died in 2007 SO MUCH STILL!! I am expecting him to meet me in the universe when i finally rid myself of this vehicle. I hope he waits for me! Now i have crazy terrified arthur. He is really coming into his own. He is finally feeling safe and comfortable enough to act like he is actually act like the 2 year old that he is! 🙂
