Kitty love


You know, Lady Mom, I haven’t been feelin’ the love 
coming my way lately.

 I wait and wait in the bedroom each night, 
but you remain in your office working on some BLOG thing. 

*Urrrrmph*




I don’t really ask for much.  Food in my bowl morning and night.  Clean litter box.  Peace and quiet.  
Vacuum cleaners hidden away. 
By the way, whoever thought it a good idea to put the vacuum cleaner 
near my litter box, 
not good, Dude.  
 




It really stressed me out !
So sorry for that accident and it won't happen again as long as you keep that thing away from me!

Lately I have to place myself in the shower just to get your attention.  


Also, please tell The Professor to give me a bit more notice to get out before he turns it on.  
Jeez ... you KNOW I can't move that fast with my arthritis.  

You haven't even noticed how I sit in the hallway each evening, 
wondering when you will come to bed.  
Kitty-willing you to come to bed.


I’m just a kitty lookin’ for love


from you 

*Meow*

A repost from two years ago.  
Our Kitty Kramer is 16 years old and not a well kitty these days.
We love him endlessly and clearly
he has loved us back as well.
Our journey together, I fear, is nearing an end.
We'll continue to shower him with love
until he tells us
it's time.

Florida Farm Girl said...

Oh, what a lover boy! I'd like to just love on him all day. I'm so sorry he's not doing well. Please do give him some extra special attention now, and a big hug from me.

Sending you hugs. When he has to leave, he will wait for you over the rainbow bridge.

Lois Evensen said...

What a sweet post about your love for your darling kitty. We so understand the love of our four legged family members....

Brian Miller said...

ha. too cute...my cat waits for me to carry him down each night...we lost our older cat right before christmas so i feel for you there...

Rohrerbot said...

Love your kitty. Poor guy, I hope he feels better. We have 5 mittens at our house and I can't imagine the world without their love. Hope he feels better.

Sylvia K said...

Such a beautiful kitty!! What an empty space there would be in our lives without our loving pet friends!! I hope he feels better and hangs around for a little longer!!

Your sweet Kramer has my Maggie's eyes and expressions. I have only rarely seen this in a cat. All cats who have it are special cats, indeed.

Your last paragraph, about loving Kramer until he says it's time, is the best thing you can possibly do. It is, after all, what Kramer wants and needs that takes priority. Kitties work their way into our hearts and our souls, and they make us much better humans for having loved them. It sounds like Kramer has had the BEST of humans in his life.

Lisa Gordon said...

Reena, he is indeed a handsome fella, and I know how difficult this is. All you can do is to love him. They never ask for anything more.
xo.

TexWisGirl said...

Kerri said...

Country Girl said...

Kramer!! Oh, what a lovely post, Reena. So sorry to hear but I did have a chuckle at the shower scene.

Kathryn said...

Reena, I was smiling big at the photos. He reminds me of one of my own cats who comes looking for love. So sorry to hear that his days are ebbing away, it's so hard to lose those we love (which most definitley includes our furry companions). Sending you all hugs. xoxox

Sad when pets grow old or infirm. These are such wonderful images...I love the one of him at the end of the hallway. He almost looks like a soft doorstop!

S. Etole said...

Such a difficult time to experience with a pet.

Barb said...

The end of a dear kitty's long life. What a sweetheart. Give him a pat from a friend in CO.

I had 2 make it past 20.Tough when a pet fails.

biebkriebels said...

Your Kitty looks so beautiful, sorry to hear he is not well. I never get accustomed to say goodbye to a Kitty. Wish you all the best.

Catherine said...

It's so hard watching our furry four legged friends get sick. Such a sweetie!
Hugs!
xo Catherine

And you have never bought me a tooth brush for these 16 years.

Linda R said...

Ahhhh. We have an old kitty as well, she is 17. And also in poor health. Sometimes I think she is in pain and we should put her down. But then other times she seems so happy. So hard to know what the right thing to do is. Give your Kitty a hug for me.

Hugs~

Daryl said...

bailey-road.com said...

I'm sorry to hear that your cat is not doing well. It's good that Kramer has had a wonderful, loving life with you.

Dianne said...

Kitty Kramer looks a lot like my boy Siren
it's hard as they age or when they're not at their strongest yet I wouldn't go a day without all the love and joy they bring

one moment at a time dear lady and gentle nuzzles to Kitty Kramer

CiCi said...

Lovely post. You have been blessed to have Kramer in your family for a long time. You are so fortunate to have all the memories. My cat is 3 now and with me only one year, so I am looking forward to having her with me many more years and then one day I will write something like this post too.

Madge Bloom said...

I am so sorry, we love our critters so much... they become part of who we are don't they?

Hilary said...

Awww he's such a beauty. So sorry that he's ailing. You'll know when the time is right... neither too soon nor too late. It's so hard. Hugs to you.

Bob Bushell said...

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Suldog said...

God bless you and your very lovely kitty. May your good days be many.

Rose L said...

Most of my cats live to be 18 years old. My little Kala cat is the heart of my heart. She is always so eager to see me and demands hugs right away when I return home. She cuddles with me whenever I am seated. She sleeps under the blanket up against my legs or back. She purrs loudly and long. Whenever I ask 'do you love your mommy?' she lifts her pa and touches my face or chest.
She is 7 and I adore her, love her, and am thankful for her.

Betty Manousos said...

silent moments said...

Hi,I came across your blog sometime back. I like your writing style and particularly like this post. Like the mighty yawn best!

Harshi said...

So sad to hear that your pet's not well. He's so cute and cuddly and even knows how to cleverly pose for the cam.

Hope he'll get well soon!
