Memories on Wednesday

Toward the end I spent a lot of time with Yin. She is a very sweet and gentle cat and she looked after me. She always dozed by me so that if I wanted her she would be close to paw. Just  by being with me she provided lots of comfort.

I have entrusted Mommy to her. She always stays close to the Mom and keeps her out of trouble. Sometimes Mommy even mistakes her for me. That's not surprising to me, even though Yin is a lot bigger than I ever was she is most like me personality wise.

Mommy doesn't understand why Yinny hissed at Yang and Chimera when they came back from the vet. She never hissed at me when I returned from the vet, although she was always waiting at the door for my return. The truth is Yinny knew my end was near and did all she could to comfort me. Yang got hissed at because HE shouldn't have been going to the vet, he should have stayed out of the rosebushes and Yin was still a bit upset about my death. Yinny didn't know Chimera just went in for her shots, so she was scolding her until Chi Chi just explained it was the annual exam deal. Chimera got a good report and Yang has healed up nicely so all the cats are well now. Fenris is still in the cone of shame, but it's not anything serious so overall my family is doing pretty well. ~Socks, reporting from The Rainbow Bridge.

  2. I'm glad everybody is doing well! Sparkle, I hear, used to get hissy when the other cats came back from the vet. Nobody gets hissy here now, and I'm glad about that!

  3. Great update, S. It's good to know you've got a close eye on your family. Healing takes time whether it's a hot spot, thorn scratches, or missing a kitty. Love you, buddy. xo

    Love and licks,

  5. Sweet memories Angel Socks. I'm glad I can visit you once in a while here the Bridge so we can talk about the families we left behind. I didn't have a kitty companion my whole life but my Mom and I were so very close and she was the last human I saw as I drifted away. I am with her all the time as she knows. I'm so happy that Yin was your "comfort kitty" when you needed her the most.

    Love, Angel Sammy
