My Eddy

by Marissa Morocco

Our Eddy was a beautiful seal-point Ragdoll with the most beautiful blue eyes ever. He was given to us by a neighbor. He was about 6 or 7, probably more like 7, years old, so still young.

He went missing Feb. 18th. He slept with me the night before, and I even picked him up the next morning before I went to work and kissed him goodbye. I said I'd see him after work. That was the last I saw of him.

He's an indoor cat. We never let him out on purpose. Anyway, I came home that evening and he was gone. He has disappeared in the house before for whatever reason, but always came back out. I've heard cats do that. But we looked all over the house, and found nothing. I looked for him through the streets of our neighborhood, looked at the Humane Society, the APA, anywhere I could think of, and still found nothing. I knew something was wrong, but my closure happened last night.

A neighbor, whom we just met and who lives three doors down, was visiting us at our house. We got to talking about animals/pets. He mentioned that a cat died on their porch shortly after Eddy disappeared. He was still alive but not acting well. They gave him some food, and he took it, but shortly after that, he died. He didn't have on a collar or tag.

We didn't see him get out. They didn't know where he came from. So they called the Humane Society to pick him up. I asked what this cat looked like, and, unfortunately, he described Eddy. I feel so many emotions... sad, heartbroken, devastated, guilty. I've been crying ever since I found out last night.

He was so awesome and sweet and beautiful. I love him, and I miss him more than anything in the world. We have two other cats at home whom I love, but Eddy was so special and I don't think I'll ever get over him or ever feel really happy again. I'd give anything in the world to have him back with us again.

Eddy, I'll always love you!!!

Thank you

Thank you for the kind words, especially the part that it's not my fault, 'cause I've been feeling guilty about this. I will check out the "Rainbow Bridge" site. Thank you again.

So sorry to hear of your lose

You will feel better as time goes on. It is very very hard to lose a pet. Grief is a normal process, so cry when you need to. There is no time frame for grieving, don't be hard on yourself. Eddy was with loving people, who fed him and gave him care at the end. I have no doubt from what you described that he knew he was loved and cherished. And your kind neighbors where there to help. There is a wonderful website called the Rainbow Bridge that you can share your feelings and put a memorial up for your cat. This was not your fault, just an accident, and it sounds like he had a good life.
God bless you and your family :)
