Dear Miko

Updated on April 7, 2015

A part of me wishes I could have gone with you on this last part of your journey. I didn’t want you to have to go anywhere alone. I never wanted you to ever be lonely and scared without me. All the important things we have always done together. You were always here to comfort me whenever I was sad. You were my best friend and life partner. You were the one person I loved the most. You were my world. I am so sorry I couldn't make you well and take away your pain.

I will miss the way you greeted me when I came home from work.

I will miss the way you head-butted my hand to get me to pet you.

I will miss the way you would run around and jump off the wall.

I will miss the way you tentatively poked your paw in my face when you wanted me to wake up.

I will miss watching basketball games and the X-Files with you by my side.

I will miss reading to you.

I will miss the way you would get all up in my face when I was talking on the phone.

I will miss you snuggling up close to me on cold nights.

I will miss you on my long road trips to Gainesville and the way you always knew when we turned on our street.

I will even miss you scratching me when I try to clip your claws.

How can I ever say good-bye? You were the best cat. I am so blessed that you came into my life. Who else would have moved with me 9 times? Put up with me working so many hours? Helped me every single time someone broke my heart? If you don’t mine, I think I will still talk to you from time to time and tell you how it is going. I wouldn’t want you to worry that I wasn’t doing okay. Thank you for giving me so much love, joy, happiness, and hope. I will miss you every day. I will think of you often. In my heart, you will never be replaced as my number one baby girl. I hope you are no longer in pain and that you knew how much I loved you.

      They always know how we feel, which is why they are there at the right times. Give another home to an unwanted animal when you can, as you will never regret it.

      Miko is without pain. But not without love.

      Ahhh! What sweet thoughts for your baby girl kitten. Talking with her now and then will help lessen the void you feel. Sorry; and best to you going forward.

      It's very sad losing a pet. I feel for you having lost a dog recently. Very nice tribute hub to your friend Miko.
