|saying goodbye to my good friend|
I never knew a cooler, more loyal cat. rest in peace dear, dear sweet Ziggy. you were so loved. gosh, you were loved. I will miss the way you sought out my lap anytime it was available (as much as I claimed to not like it when Claire was a wee one and my body was so seldom all my own), the way you started purring before I even touched you. the way you always slept by my head- for almost 14 years. the way you meowed so loudly when we got home from vacation- yelling at us for having been gone and telling us all about your adventures. I will miss spooning with you on cold winter nights - me the big spoon, you the little. and the two of us fighting over the best spot by the wood stove…. I will even miss hearing you jump on the counters at night and making a racket because, well, because that meant you were here and well. love you Zig. xoxo I hope these last days weren't too terrible for you, and that I took off my rose-colored glasses in time to show you some respect and let you go with dignity.
