Tomorrow will be one year since I lost my beautiful furry boy, Joey.
I can’t believe it has been a year.
He was in my life for 17 1⁄2 years. That’s a long time. And I still can’t believe he is gone.
Joey brought so much joy to my life and his unconditional love and cuddling were just two wonderful things about him.
I am still heart broken over his death. I am not sure if I will ever get over it.
People have asked if we will get another cat or if we want one. For now the answer is no. I wanted to be furbaby free for a year. And a year has come.
Here’s the thing, Joey had an amazing personality. He was a cuddle bug and a sweetheart. He was definitely cat and would get pissy at times. But his personality for the most part was almost like a dog.
I don’t think I could find another cat that would compare. And I don’t think I want to. Another cat will never be my Joey and I don’t know if I could bear that.
Watching TV or movies while cuddled under a blanket is just not the same without Joey. And it never will be.
And even though this year has been tough I remember the many wonderful years I had with him and how much fuller my life is because of Joey.
He was also in Curt’s life for a long time. Joey was about 6 when Curt and I first started dating.
My two boys had a love/hate relationship. But eventually it was mostly love.
Joey, your mama will always love you.
Thank you for being my sweet boy and my furry angel.
