In loving memory of my sweet little calico cat Brio. My life and home are empty without her. She truly lit up my life.
I love you little Brio, now and forever.
The day I brought Brio home is still so fresh in my mind... seems like yesterday. She was the cutest most playful little kitten at the petstore near my home. As soon as I let her out of her case she ran around the house and shocked everybody by being able to easily jump up onto my mom's bed. She was such a tiny little girl.
I called her my little stripey faced, smudgy nosed, blacky butt girl. I used to equate her to a beautiful piece of art... she looked as if someone had painted zig zags on her sides, and a tan coloured diamond in the middle of her back... and it looked like her mom had put way too much eyeliner around those beautiful eyes. Oh how I miss her... my little sweetieheart Brio. 8-(
Every night she'd climb up onto my chest and look into my eyes... then she'd start kneading me. When she was finished she'd curl up on my chest and tuck her head kind of sideways right next to me. I'd put my arm around her and say "I love you little Brio". I was never happier than at that moment. She was the dearest little soul, and I know she loved me as much as I loved her. I just hope that she knew that at the end. She was so scared, and it broke my heart... her story is in my journal at
This is a sketch I did of Brio in April 2006. I was going through a really rough time and my thoughts of Brio and just knowing she was there helped get me through. She was always on my mind and still is. I'm really having trouble accepting that she's gone. I so long to gaze into her beautiful eyes again and cuddle her close to me. I've surrounded myself with her photos but it's not enough... I just want my little Brio...
