In Loving Memory

Our 12-year-old cat Skip died last night, and since then, I have been crying on and off. When I got the news at about midnight last night, I cried until 3am, fell asleep, woke up, got ready for work and I continued crying while I was driving. Even in the office, when no one was around, I could feel my tears flowing.. I never knew that losing a pet could be this hard. I keep telling myself, she's just a cat, just a cat... but no! She's not :( She was family. She has been with us since 1999 and has been a source of joy and happiness for me and my family, especially my girls, for more than a decade and with that I will miss my darling Skip terribly.

I always thought that Skip was not a normal cat. She was very intelligent and thoughful. I remember when once my sister was sad and she locked herself in her room, Skip sat patiently outside the room looking as if she wanted to make sure that my sister was okay.

And I will always remember Skip's reaction when we first brought back Audrene. She was so excited and curious! She ran around and when Audrene was in the cot, she would peak and take a look at Audrene. She even kissed Audrene when she thought that none of us were looking. She was such a sweetheart. And when Audrene cried, she would rush to us as if to tell that the baby's crying and would only go when we have attended to the baby. Oh Skip, we love you dearie :'(

Oh Skip also brought me a 'present' once... a mice!! Hehe! I remembered screaming and jumping around when I saw her with the dead mice and I locked myself inside the room but she just waited outside the door with the mice. I guess she thought I loved the mice because I screamed so much and she wanted to play.. Yes, that's one funny memory.

There are just so many memories with Skip and for now I couldn't bear remembering it because it will bring tears to my eyes. I just can't wait to go back home so I could have a quiet moment and digest all the emotions and memories. It is just too overwhelming right now.

Here's a photo of my darling Skip... May you rest in peace. You will be missed dearly :(
