RIP Anna 2002-2008


At about 4:20pm GMT on 3 June 2008, Anna took her last breath. It is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. But she was sick and was just getting worse. Carolyn and I took her to the vet and pet her until the very end. She was a trooper. Words can’t express the sadness and emptiness I feel now. Chewy notices something is amiss. I hope he is healthy and has many more years left in him.

Anyone who has been to my house knew Anna. She was always at the door waiting to greet you. And, the second you sat down, she was in your lap, purring. She was a constant, loving companion and friend to Carolyn and I. She had the chance to travel and explore many homes and meet many other wonderful animals. I will miss waking up in the middle of the night to have her purring contentedly by my side. I hope I was able to provide a life, short as it might have been, that was caring and loving. She will be missed.

Evidence that this was one of the sweetest cats in the world. Rest in peace Annabelle.

    Anna even liked me and I have noticed most cats are afraid of me. Maybe they are afraid of my size but Anna came up to me the very first time she saw me. Rest in peace Anna.

    Poor sweet little girl. She had a good life and was so very loved. Give chewy lots of hugs for me, he’s going to a bit confused for a while.

    In our thoughts and prayers…

    I woke up this morning to Maya going crazy. Running and jumping and swiping. I swear that she was playing with something or someone that I could not see. I really felt like it was Anna. I could almost hear those cute little owl noises.

    The same thing with Timber…she was very vocal yesterday and I felt she was saying “Anna, I wish we had had time to be friends.”
