Mimi 1989 to 9 August 2009

So gorgeous
Originally uploaded by Mimi's Bead Studio
It was the beginning of summer in 1998 when 4 cats arrived at my house. 3 of them were only boarding with me for a few weeks and the 4th one had just come to live in her forever home.
That was when I first met Mimi - a little girl that would climb into my heart. Those first few weeks were a bit trying because Mimi had to share a strange house with Meow meow - a very old black cat who was the boss of all, Whiskey - a sweet Siamese who ignored Mimi and Fluffy - a very small cat with a short tail and her and Mimi did not like each other at all - phew it was tough at times.
The 3 cats went to their home when it was ready and Mimi changed into the most adorable and friendly girl. She was independent yet loving at the same time. She had a new enemy to fight with - a very sweet little Siamese who belonged to a neighbor. We moved into a new house and Mimi became an indoor cat. She loved going for a drive in the car and would happily sit on the seat next to me - never trying to get on my lap - as if she knew that was not a good thing.
As she got older she became more and more attached to me. She did not like to be away from me for too long.
She got arthritis and then later on she started losing her sight too but all the while she was the same adorable and loving cat.
My heart is broken after losing her but I remember all the joy and laughter that she brought and all the unconditional love that she gave. I will always remember her with a smile and a heart filled with love. A friend from Myspace made the angel picture for Mimi - Thanks Catladyinflorida!!
Rest in peace my darling Mimi.

I am so sad for your loss. Thank you for writing about her. I feel like I know her now. I won't say that the sadness goes away but when my last kitty "Randi" crossed the Rainbow Bridge, another one came into my life in a month. I had no intention of getting another rescue cat for a few months but along came Penelope (Penny) and it was love at first sight. My heart goes out to you.
