In loving memory of our Odie who we love so much. Odie will be greatly missed and be in our hearts forever. You left us so soon but we will never forget you our "little cat"


Odie relaxing with the boys

Odie was such a beautiful and spunky tabby. He was so smart he knew how to open windows. I couldn't believe it . I was asking who was leaving the windows open until I caught him opening the window . He pushed out all our window screens and would escape to go out.  We tried to keep him in it was very difficult. I bought him many toys, a condo tower and a jungle gym but he loved the outdoors. He always stuck close to home or in the backyard and would come in for his naps and he really did stay in a lot of the time.   This is how I got to have this precious baby as part of our family.   I found Odie in the parking lot at work and he was a tiny little kitten. I saw a cute little cat and he looked at me and we made eye contact. I couldn't leave this baby all alone in the parking lot so I went to him. All I had was a piece of bread and that is what I offered him . He was so hungry he came to me right away and let me hold him. I was sure somebody at work would want this beautiful baby although, his little face was pretty scratched -up and he had mange. Well, nobody was able to take him. I had two dogs so I wasn't really sure if it would work out if I kept him. I had never had a cat so although I did have an idea of how to care for a cat I had my doubts. I called my husband and said "How would you like a cute little kitten ?"  and to my surprise he answered "Do whatever you'd like.  If you want to bring it home' go ahead"  wow, that was a shock.  When I brought him into the house  my two boys (a boston terrier and a cocker spaniel) smelled his box and couldn't wait to see what was inside. We were very careful when we introduced him to the boys. They were very gentle to him and he had no fear of them whatsoever. Soon, he would rule the house. I took him to the Vets office and I had him vaccinated and took care of his mange but I had to get medicine for the boys to prevent them from getting it too because it is highly contagious.He became a beautiful healthy tabby, so full of life.  Our two dogs accepted him and the boston(Professor) even liked Odie to groom him. It was clear Odie was the boss. He would love to hide around a corner and wait for one of the boys to come by and scare them. However, this would end much too soon.  We lost Odie the day before Christmas Eve. I had been doing the last minute holiday stuff and my husband called me to come home because something was wrong. That was it, my baby Odie was gone.  I got to pet Odie for the last time and it was so heart breaking; the worst Christmas of my life.The boys were smelling around Odie's bed and looking for him. He also had a friend Pee-wee who would come and play with him too and  Pee-wee has been coming and looking for him and meowing outside our window where Odie would sit and look out  and it just breaks my heart.  Odie made many friends human as well as other cats that would and still do come to look for him. We'll miss Odie forever, he was our first cat. My little baby, why did he go so soon.


My precious baby Professor went to meet Odie on October 15th

              If Tears Could Build a Stairway 

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, we'd walk right up to heaven and bring you back again. No farewell words were spoken , no time to say good-bye, you were gone before we knew it and only God knows why. Our hearts still ache in sadness, and secrect tears still flow, What it meant to lose you no one can ever know. But now we know you want us to mourn for you no more, to remember all the happy times: life still has much in store. Since you'll never be forgotten we pledge to you today:" A most special place within our hearts is where you'll always stay.    We love you Odie 





As you can see the boys loved to nap together. It's so sad the boys are still looking for Odie, especially Professor, who was closer to Odie. Like me,they are still waiting and wishing he would come home except I know, that's not going to happen. Odie, I miss you so much!

Sadly our other boy Professor went to meet Odie at rainbow bridge on October 16th after a long battle with cushings disease.



Our beautiful Odie

Odie, I miss your coming to greet me when I got home and me picking you up and giving you your treat I miss seeing you sitting at our window looking out. I miss buying your special treats and your milk you loved. I miss you always there keeping the boys in line and making sure they were behaving. I miss you so much Odie there is an empty spot because you're not here.


Odie trying to escape from being cuddled.

Odie our beautiful little rascal being cuddled against his will. He only wanted to be cuddled at his discretion (of course like most cats). We miss you so much more than words can ever say. I would do anything to have you back. Lots of hugs and kisses . Mom
