To Lexi, With Love…

Dear sweet Lexi, where do I start?. When I saw you for the first time only minutes old and laying there in a child’s shoe box stacked on top of your littermates; I couldn’t have known how profoundly you would change my life. You spoke for all of you. Mewing so loudly that you got the attention of everybody at the adoption event. I didn’t wait to hear your story or how you came to be there. I took you into the break room at the Petsmart and washed you off, wrapped you in a towel and got you a bottle. It was then that I took the time to hear your story. I knew you would be special. You were a fighter and wanted to live and be loved.

 Lexi and llittermates day 1

I remember as I sat feeding you the president of the rescue I volunteered with told me they didn’t want to take in your litter because y’all were too “black” and would be hard to adopt. And that it would be better for everybody if you were put to sleep now. I remember the rage I felt hearing that, and refusing saying that someone will want y’all. I remember going to the vet later that day to have you checked out and being told none of you would make it. But I just knew you would. You had spunk, and fight, and the biggest purr I had ever heard on such a young kitten. I also remember how you wanted to snuggle up in my arms every chance you got. I would try to give you a bottle and you just wanted to be next to me.

As y’all grew and it came time for you to find a forever home, I remember being a little more protective of you than I had been with other kittens. I remember the first adoption event you were a part of and how when we came home you wouldn’t leave my side. And then it happened…someone wanted you. An application had been put in to adopt you. It was then that I knew how much I truly loved you and could never let you go. I made apologies an changed your name and resigned myself to the fact that we were a 3 cat home now. It was like you relaxed when I told you that you were my baby, my daughter now and I would never leave you and you would always live with me no matter what.

You were a quick study when it came to learning how to help me and your brothers. You worked so hard it was as if you were trying to prove you belonged with me and that I had made the right choice. But Lexi, my heart, my love, you never had to prove anything to me; I made the only choice my heart would allow. Each time we moved you were always the steady one. The one who seemed to let your brothers know that we were always going to be together even though your worlds had been turned upside down. And as always you preferred being held over anything else. You scarfed your meals so you could get to my lap first. And no matter how hard I tried to get you to slow down you just didn’t listen. You were so tiny and your brothers so big that you didn’t want to have to compete with them. I so enjoyed lap time with the three of you.

As the years passed you grew and things changed. First Devon left us and then Lucky. You and I grieved together and found comfort in each other. And you tolerated the addition of a new brother and eventually a new sister. Out of your toleration grew a deep love for them. You were so patient and loving with them and me. You worked so hard to help me train each of them. Even though you were getting older and slower you worked just as hard as when you were a youngster.

We’re both getting older now my sweet, and the gray hairs are creeping up and sprouting on both of us. But every time I look at you I still see that little kitten that fought so hard to live. I never had much in the way of money so you didn’t have every new toy that came out or pawsum cat furniture to play on. But Lexi my green eyed angel girl, you never lacked for my love.

 dw Lexi climbs steps

There is no one in this world who could love you more than me. Sometimes as I watch you sleep, and watch your chest rise and fall with each breath I’m in total awe. How could so much love be wrapped up in such a small package? We often communicate without saying anything. I look at you from across the room and you tilt your head and give me a slow blink and turn on your rumbling purr that can be heard throughout the house. And then you walk over to me and jump up in my lap and put out your paw to pull my hand over to you. I whisper, I love you angel, and you just purr louder. Sometimes I ask you if you love me too, and you always look over at me and meow. There are those who would say you have no idea what I said or what you are responding, but you and I know different don’t we.

We share a bond that can never be broken. I was so blest to have been the first voice you heard and the first thing you saw and too be chosen by you. I am still so blest that you continue to share your love with me. Everyday with you is like a little piece of heaven here on earth. I try daily to let you know how much you mean to me and how much I love you. And with each passing day my love for you only grows stronger. So Lexi, my darling angel girl, I will continue to remind you that I love you and that we will always be together. Thank you for choosing me and thank you for loving me. I am yours and you are mine till the end of time and beyond.     

Love Forever,

About Deziz World

My name is Deztinee. I am a Ragdoll. I was born 11/1/2009. I am a service cat along with my sisfur RaenaBelle, also a Ragdoll, for our disabled human mommy. My sisfur Raena was born 4/21/2016. In March of 2016, mommy and I had to say goodbye to my mentor Alexandra (Lexi), a black tabby born 4/29/1999. This blog is about our daily life from the kitty's point of view. We were both rescued from bad situations and our mommy raised us and trained us to be service cats. I want this blog to be interactive and get to know all of you, so comment and visit often. I will also offer advice, training tips and education when possible.

    • Thank you Kelly. I love so deeply and my girls are my world. I don’t know how to exist without them, and never want to have to think about it. Although I know that love transcends time and death, and that’s what makes it all worth it. So sorry you lost Oskar, but that love will live on forever.

      Love,

      mommy Audra

      • Oh it does Audra! I share my heart again, but that love is still there and just as strong. I still miss Oskar some days so bad it hurts, but I also have a heart filled with love from our 13yrs together. I feel so very lucky to have had that special love.

        • Yes Kelly nobody who ever loved a special cat has said that love doesn’t hurt. And I can’t even think about losing either of the girls, but I know it will have been worth it. I still think of my boys and my heart aches, but I wouldn’t have changed a thing even knowing I would lose them so early. They are so precious and give so much and ask so little. My heart just breaks when I see or hear about one that is hurt by the humans that it should be able to trust. My girls could never imagine that a human could or would ever hurt or abandon them, and that’s just the way I like to keep it.

          You were indeed blest to hav had so much time with Oskar. And I know that even tho’ it still hurts you wouldn’t have changed anything either. The joy and love you shared was worth every minute of him being gone. And of course I believe we will one day be reunited with our babies for eternity where none of us get sick or go away again.

          Love
