Today marks an anniversary for me. It is actually a memory grown distant now that years have come and gone. In 1990, which was 24 years ago, I adopted my first cat Emilee Marie Cuddles at 8 weeks ago at the http://www.petsgohome.org and now, since December 2006, I have had my 2nd cat Bing Noel-Nuggles Crosby from the same place – Rock County Humane Society. I had Emilee for sixteen and a half years. She was a one-person kitty and loved by me even though she was temperamental and different. She lived a good life.
I did not get Bing to fill the void of losing Emilee. I got Bing to love and enjoy throughout his days and mine. He is my cat now. I do think of Emilee often and on days like this and holidays, I remember her and think of her. She was cremated and I have her ashes in a nice flowered tin and that is where she remains the rest of my days. I want to buried with her ashes and Bing goes, I want to buried with his ashes as well.
Long live Emilee Marie Cuddles in my heart and mind forever!
