Whoopie's Goal in Life

Whoopie at 18 1/2

Whoopie was born March 3, 1994. We were very lucky to have her for 18 1/2 years. We had to send her to her resting place 9/17.

She was loving to us, but fractious to others, until she got to know them. She was a Maine Coon and was so beautiful. Her goal was to have her dad hold her whenever he was home and put up with mom. But, understand, she was the ruler of the house. Since Mom was the rule maker, she often told her off and in no uncertain terms. She did stop, if mom told her too, but not if dad did. She had him wrapped around her finger. She traveled with us on a few occasions when we went away for a couple of weeks. When dad got a job out of state, she started to be nicer to mom. She slept on mom's side, when she was on her side. She slept across her leg's when she was on her back. If she was reading, she had to be in her lap and up to her left shoulder. She didn't like the right shoulder at all.

In her last few months of life, all she wanted was to be held 24 hours a day. It was the hardest thing I have ever done. You could have rode a plane through the hole in my heart. I have no idea when the pain will go away. But, I do know, now she is safe and maybe she will meet up with a special dog I had long before she came into our life.

God Bless you Whoopie and keep you safe.

That is a lifetime you had Whoopie. I had my kitty 12 years and he died yesterday. I am sad with you. They are family and this is hard.

She was very pretty and she was like my Baby Bear who I had to put down on the same day due to illnesses. HE would lay on me the same way when he felt better.

It's never easy to make the " Quality of Life " decision to put them down. I've only had one cat that died naturally.

Take care and know otheres are sharing your grief for a pet.

Our hearts have a hole in it.

How lucky to have had over 18 year with Whoopie. She looks like quite a character, no doubt set in her ways. I hope she comes across my little Snow Snow who was killed on December 12th 2011 (she was only 4 1/2) by some jerk driving too fast. I think they would enjoy one anothers company. I miss my little girl so much and just haven't, no I really don't want to move on. I just want her back with me. I hope your pain is more managable then what I am experiencing.

All the best to you.
