Yum Yum

Song Lyric of the Day:

Now I’m calling back for you / I figured out I’m missing you / You’re nowhere to be found / Oh I’ve asked and looked around / Seems you found a better fish / I must confess I had a wish / To love you all along

Nil Lara / “Fighting for My Love

My youngest cat, Yum Yum, died this morning. He was only 10 years old and, hands down, the only pet I’ve ever had who was more like a baby than a pet. I’ll try to write more about him later, since I’m still really weepy at the moment. I can cry more freely at home later than I can in my cube here at work.

    Poor little Yum Yum. He was definitely more like a baby than a kitty. And he only loved YOU! I loved when he tried to get me to pet him and he pulled his “wheeze-hiss” routine on me! We are all going to miss him.

    Love you,

    Oh, no. I’m so sorry. I’m sure your special Yum Yum is, he is missing you, too.

    Been thinking about you. I can remember coming to that first little house you had by yourself and seeing Yum Yum’s picture on the frig. That’s how I met him. Yum Yum was a very fortunate cat to have had your wonderful caring attention all these years. We’ll miss hearing you tell of his adventures. Hope with time it will hurt a little less.

    Love you,

    I’m sorry. That is too young for a kitty to be taken from its mommy.
