Heartbroken


My kitty BFF Crockett is gone. Everyone is heartbroken. The mommas had gone to take us dogs for a walk and when they came home, Crockett was gone. He was crushed by a ladder they had been using for re-doing the entry hall. He had climbed the ladder earlier in the day. Both Crockett and Travis had. Crockett had gotten up in the light well - he loved to climb and my momma had to fish him out. The ladder had been propped against the wall, the mommas are guessing he tried to climb it again and it fell over and crushed him. He was the sweetest cat - he loved to sit with people - especially his momma. He loved pets and had started making biscuits. He always looked like a kitten - he had the sweetest round face. He was such a curious cat - he always followed his momma around and loved to come in while the mommas took baths and watch them. He waited for my momma to wake up everyday to feed him - he would rub in between her legs as she went to the kitchen. This is the last photo my momma took of him - today he was a healthy 5 year old and my family thought they would have at least another decade with him. He was Travis' best friend - they snuggled together, they played together, they gave each other baths. Angelique and him were good friends too - they would bathe each other. Finley and him would cuddle. Crockett was the only cat who actually liked me - he would even would play chase with me. He was the best cat - there will never be another like him. We're in shock and very very sad. There will be no more Raspberry Kitten, no more Baby Simba face, no more Crockett Rocket. This is so unfair.

There's nothing sadder than losing someone special so suddenly like that! We're sending lots of hugs and POTP to you pups and your whole family.

@Kismet - Not the time for a joke birdbrain. We have no idea what happened and have been crying nonstop. He wiz the best cat.

Finley and Brinley said...

Kismet-- that is what you have to say? Really? We know some people don't like cats, but evfurryone else has been kind. That comment was cruel. My momma can't stop cryin'-- she blames herself because she didn't leave the ladder flat on the floor, she placed it up against the wall so no one would trip over it. It's very heavy when folded and reduced and she never thought it could be knocked ovfur. Crockie wuz her lil shadow, her comfort when she wuz sad-- she has been thru a lot these past few years. She cannot quit cryin'-- and she comes ovfur here to see you makin' a joke about his death. It's not a time for jokes, will nevfur be the time for jokes. We don't know exactly whut happened.... but it isn't funny, it's tragic. We're all heartbroken. Us pups look for him, Travis is barely eating and is traumatized-- we think he saw it happen. Please be more kind to people who suffer a tragic accident like this, put yourself in their shoes. Not everything can be joked about. ~~Finley & Brinley

We are all, each of us, heartbroken to hear about this tragedy. We loved Crockett and his little raspberries and his sweet, innocent face. Please don't blame yourselves. It is unnecessary to add blame to your heartbreak. Try to focus on all the love your family gave Crockett. Our humom believes many things in life are random and out of our control, but love is constant and enduring no matter how short or long our time on earth. Crockett was loved and all that love you gave him, is what he takes with him . May he rest in peace.

Sending you love and support,
from your pals in Canada, Duffy, Malou, Levon, Wilhelmina, Avalon and their Mamam, Sophie XOXO
