On January 8th we had to say our goodbyes to the best cat I have ever known in my life. He has always been Rob’s cat/baby since he was a little boy himself, but, when I started dating Rob, that also meant me being attached to his cat which made me consider him my fur baby.
Hogging the bed/seats on the couch, biting my toes anytime I moved the slightest in my sleep, the constant meowing, following me into the bathroom and nearly making me trip a few times was only a few of the memories.. but the memories I would never trade for anything else.
My favourite memories are the snuggles/cuddles when we watched shows, or waking up in the morning seeing him still in bed with me and any time I tried to work on the laptop, or use my phone.. I loved how he was either by my feet, or sitting beside me as I worked.. and then casually got in the way to scratch his head off my laptop/phone. Or how he would sometimes just come crawl into my lap when I was trying to read a book.
I also loved how Josie would always meow when both Rob and I were not in the room. His favourite place to be, especially in the colder months was in our bed room, and he’d just chill there meowing to get our attention. And if one of us was ready for bed and under the covers, it wasn’t enough, he’d stare at the door and meow till the other came into the room too.
It’s only just been over 6 years since I’ve known Josie, but, it feels like a life time. I love you so much buddy, and I know you’ll always be watching us.. just like how you’d always come comfort us if you knew one of us were sad or not doing well.
Miss you always.
