I had not planned this post today.
It is with a heavy heart
that our Ace kitty went to heaven.
Born approx. July 4th 2011,
according to our vet,
he would have been 11 years old this year.
We found him passed away in our laundry room
after coming home from working the stores yesterday.
Bob buried him in our backyard in one
of his favorite blankets.
We called him our investigator.
Any time we brought something new in.
he would get underneath it or inside it
He had a black heart on one side of his body,
and an inverted on on the other side.
We named him Ace of Hearts.
He picked me and was my favorite.
There were some girls at a store one year
with a box of kitties.
They urged me to come look at some kittens.
They told me they had found them
and wanted to give them good homes.
I did not want to look at any of them, but I did.
There were four lil babes in that box,
and only one kept meowing at me.
The farther I walked away, the louder he got.
I called Bob when I got into the car
and asked him if I should bring him home.
Bring him home I did.
Peepers our other cat became his best friend.
His other black heart shown here.
He gave me joy to my own heart.
He loved that catio Bob made for our kitties.
In fact Ace was wondering just a few days ago
why I would not open the window they normally
went out to go outside.
Bob had to dismantle the catio so they could
install our new windows
He was going to make a new one for them soon.
Ace and Peeps are now together again.
The three amigos is what we called them when Shadow
He was also a rescue kitty.
Now Shadow does not know what to do.
We are hoping he warms up to Tundra now.
Ace was a joy!
We enjoyed almost 11 years.
he had been on urinary dietic food
since he was 2.
Then earlier this year we found out he
So more meds.
We did not care how much money was spent on him.
He was our kitty.
I cried and cried when I lost Peeps.
Now I am doing the same.
We are so glad you chose us to be part
of our family Ace.
My son Matt said he was the coolest cat ever.
Very friendly to all who walked inside our home.
He will be missed tremendously.
For my friends with pets,
you know they become part of your family.
They bring us joy and laughter...
and bring a loss when they are gone.
In other news,
I hope everyone is enjoying their
Memorial Day weekend.
Please take some time to remember the reason
for this holiday.
Also it broke my heart once again to
hear about another school shooting.
Just wish this madness would stop.
Memorial Day Blessings To All!
