Molly Remembered

Today is the first anniversary of Molly going to the bridge...I really can’t believe a year has passed!  My house is filled with young cat energy now and there is always something happening here to make me smile, but I miss my old lady very much.  My head knows that eighteen is a good long life, that she was well loved and that it truly was her time to go, but my heart misses her constant purr, how she used to sleep on my head like a hat at night and a thousand other things that made her special to me :-)

I love you Molls, you are not forgotten!

I'm sorry for your loss my friend, and I know that she's looking out for you from the bridge.

Awww - we think Molly looks like a gorgeous girl. Scott still misses Uncle Orlando (we only met him a few times) and Aunt Doris (She went to the bridge before we were born). They will always be with us because they were loved.

Purrs to you today - my human still thinks about the calico kitty that came before me, and it has been over 9 1/2 years now that she has been gone.

(((Hugs))) to you today, Cat. What can I say? Nothing. Just know you're not alone and that so many of us understand exactly how you feel.

Peace and Blessings.

I a understanding how you feel. My beloved Robin's anniversary comes Dec 11. It is a somber day for us too..we miss her. I smiled though at your precious memory of Mommy. She was a dear member of your family. That is easy to see.
Thank you so much for coming to see me while I was in the hospital. xoxoxox

About our harnesses (from your question): we usually don't wear our harnesses on the deck now that it seems pretty clear Audrey is not an escaper. The stairs are blocked off with mesh and it is too high for us to be likely to jump. We DO usually wear our collars with our license tags on them, but on this particular occasion, Dad let us out for a bit without putting the collars on.

We know you will be sad today on Molly's anniversary - mum is always sad when it is the anniversaries of her before cats too. We are sending you whiskery kisses.

I definitely understand how it feels and I send my heartfelt condolences. Molly was a beautiful and awesome cat.

Madi and Mom said...

Oh my goodness Molly was absolutely a beautiful lady cat with such unusual markings. Gone but not forgotten ever. Each pet we've had has been sorely missed at first, followed by such sweet and funny memories. We still tell Toto (our mighty mini Doxie and 1st pet)and Milky-way(our first cat 2nd pet) stories I wish the same for you.
Hugs Madi and Mom

I understand, as we were sad when our old cat went to the rainbow bridge too. You miss their little ways, but like you we have a young cat now. Sending purrs and thoughts.

We love the picture of Molly.
They make us laugh, they give us joy and, sometimes they ar naughty. They are not just pets, they are part of our lives.
They are always in our hearts.
Kisses

We're so sorry you're missing your sweet Molly. We still have days when we miss our Maggie, who passed away in March, too. We send purrs and prayers of comfort as you remember your beloved friend.

Gone but never ever forgotten... We had a Molly, too, a tortie who went to the bridge in 1998. None of the 3 kitties knew her but I like to think they carry on the cozy traditions. Your four boys are doing that for you.

Sending you warm and comforting purrs. We never forget those who came before. Molly was a special girl.

Mom still gets sad on the anniversary of our Roger Ramjet crossing to the Rainbow Bridge on June 6, 1990. You can never forget...and we remember all the rest too.

Purrs,

Cory and family

CCL Wendy said...

I, too, can't believe a year has come and gone already. After loving someone for 18 years, they are never going to leave your heart. Molly will always have her own special piece of it.

I imagine all that feline testosterone around your house is a stark contrast to Molly's gentle nature.

Molly's still purring on high!

Cats of Wildcat Woods said...

Mollie is still with you all watching over you. Purrs from all of us.

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

We missed visiting on this anniversary day, but we know just how you feel. Our Teri was telling a friend recently that she can't believe it's been 6 years since Bo crossed the bridge. He would have been 21 years old next month and Teri said she knows his QOL at that age would not have been so good probably. Just like our Dad, she lost Bo suddenly...
