stealing my pillow

We adopted Herbie in July of 2010 he was an 8 week old little pure black male. Born april 6th he was so tiny when he came home he could fit in the cubby hole of our headboard and from day 1 would crawl into my husbands hair and nuzzle, make biscuts, and purr like a little motorboat he continued to do this his entire life even bumping me out of the way at night when he got bigger. He loved his four adopted sisters when we got our youngest he would take his favorite toy with the stick and strings and drag it around the house for her to follow and play with. He would chew on the corner of my favorite chinese lamp. and when he wanted a belly rub he would tuck his little chin down and do a somersault so we could reach that tummy and he would seem to smile. Even though he was an inside cat he was all cat and would escape through an open door once in awhile but he always came home right away and end up in the garden in the back yard. loved his tuna better than wet food especially the juice. Such a happy guy... A couple of weeks ago he got what we thought was a hairball and he developed a cough that i thought was the hairball or maybe a change of seasons cold he did get the sniffles the previous 2 years and on the 24th he dissappeared on the 26th we found him in the basement a place he loved and we had checked the day before we took him to the hospital praying and crying we could save him but it was too late the fluid in his chest was too much. We all miss him terribly especially my husband who had that snuggle bond it is so sad and quiet here a big piece is missing from our family

You're in my thoughts!

Sending love and comfort your way. Herbie is adorable. Wish our little buddies didn't have to leave us so soon. I know Garfield and Herbie will be good friends in heaven! May both of us get through the hurt we are going through.
