Sweet Porpus

Goodbye, sweetest friend. I promise not to remember you as the sickly kitty you have become. You would not approve.

I will remember you as the fiery lady you always were.

Fiercely loving. Passionately cuddly. A brilliant nanny. The best “oh my god you are home” door greeter that a feline could be. A friend to Schween. Superfan of the sun. Adoring of your dad. Smart as a whip. Sweet and soft. Fat. Happy.

Thanks for being my first baby. I will love you always. I know you will find the sunniest spot to rest on your porch in the sky.

Goodbye, sweet girl. Mama misses you already.

  2. oh megan, this made me cry. i haven’t been on twitter recently so didn’t know things had got so bad although i knew she was unwell and had seen instagram photos of her. sending you virtual hugs from bristol. i have never had a cat but i can imagine it must be heartbreaking. at least you know she had a very, very good life and will no longer be in pain xx

  21. Norpus, I’ll always remember you as a fiercely loyal hall monitor, pranorping at the slightest movement in order to protect your home. It was the sweetest thing to see you transform into super nanny for Benton. I’ll miss you and your little lazy eye!

  22. Oh, Megan. I’m so sorry. I’m bawling over here, because I’m a cat lady, and I know what your heart must be feeling right now. I wish I could come over and hug you, and bring you hot tea and just sit with you. I’m wishing my trip to Chicago would’ve worked out. Please know I’m thinking of you and sweet Porpus, your first baby and your loving companion.

  23. So so so sorry, Megan. 😦 I know just how you’re feeling right now.

    She was your first furry baby indeed! Grief over the lost of our pets can be very deep and disorienting. (This http://pet-loss.net and this http://aplb.org/chat/chat_petloss.html are good resources for going through this.)

    Your own eloquent words and loving thoughts & memories about Porpus tugged deeply at my soul just now, Megan, and made it all even more real. Rest in peace, Porpus!

  25. I’m so sorry for your loss 😦

  26. I’m so sorry, guys. Thinking about you.

  27. I’m sorry Megan.

    I’m not even a pet person and this made me teary.

  28. Oh this is awful. I have been out of the loop and missed this horribly sad event
    😦 So sorry for your loss.

  29. Oh Megan, I’m so sorry. So. Very. Sorry.
