Sassy but we nick named her sissy
by Brenda Talley
my precious sissy
This is my story of my cat sassy/Sissy we all are from Georgia,she has been very much part of my life and family for 14 1/2 years.Her color was so Beautiful she was orange and white..She was strickly a house cat.My cat earned her name Sassy not long after we got her.She was born at my husbands old shop in the year 1996,when i first saw her it was like love at first sight,she was born to a wild cat and there for hasn't been handled at all when she was first born. She was scared at first,my husband was able to catch her,she was only 4 weeks old at the time.We brought her home,not sure if i would have to take sassy back to her mom or not,My husband said if she want eat cat food on her own then i would have to take her back to her mom cause really at 4 weeks old was to early to take her away from her birth mom,but luckly she would eat the cat food.I had 2 other cats at the time thay was both males and thay was like the father rooster to sassy thay would clean her and take care of Sassy the way a mother cat would take care of their kittens. how my cat got her name Sassy was she was very bossy and when i would talk to her she would look up at me and throw her head up and give me a sassy meow thats when i said HOLY COW!! I know what her name will be Sassy it fit her so perfect,one of my oldest cats i had before we got sassy had passed away after 8 years of his life so i had soon got 3 more house cats to add to my family,But sassy did not like them at all,if thay got near her she would smack them and meow as she run into my bedroom where she slept..Sassy thought she was a human not a feline,she never had any type of health problems in her in tire life,we gave her a nick name Sissy thats what we always called her we never called her Sassy ever again.She was my lil sissy,who I had sense she was 4 weeks old. When sissy came to be part of my life and my family,one of my female house cat had kittens and i kept one of the litters and it was a male cat we call him bullet,and as he grew into an adult cat and my sissy was getting old and it was starting to show.My male cat bullet got to where he would jump on my Sissy, so my husband and i would fear for my Sissy that bullet would end up killing her,so we confind her strickly to my bedroom.She had her own litter box and food and water,she never wanted to come out of the bedroom. I kept my bedroom door shut all the time.Sissy was the only cat that was aloud to stay in my bedroom,she was treated like a princes/queen,Sissy had her own lil apartment and was very happy and content with her own little space.My Sissy was a very happy and healthy cat,she was a mama's girl and was very jeolus of me petting and loving on my other cats. Sissy never liked sharing me with my other cats at all.
Like i said earlier in this letter that my Sissy had never had any kind of health problems in her whole life,and like i said earlier on Sissy came into my life and my family when she
was 4 weeks old my oldest son was 4 years old and now my son is 18 1/2 yrs...
THE PASSING OF MY DEAR BELOVED AND PRECIOUS SASSY/SISSY WHO WILL FOR EVER BE MISSED DEARLY AND NEVER BE FORGOTTEN SASSY/SISSY WILL CONTINUE TO LIVE ON IN OUR HEARTS FOR EVER AND EVER.
(My Sassy/Sissy passed away on December 21 2010.There was know signs what so ever that my sissy was sick and that she would soon lay down and go to sleep and never wake up again,this was the most sad time in my life,my precious Sissy would always sit on the side of the bath tub while i was taking my bubble bath,the morning my Sissy passed away i went and took a bubble bath and of course my Sissy was sitting on the side of the bath tub as she did ever day.I will never forget this day as long as i live,before i went out of my room Sissy was on my pillow she turned and looked at me and had love in her eyes and little did i know that it would be the last time i see my Sissy alive,as i was standing at my bedroom door fixing to walk out i looked over at my Sissy and as she was looking at me.These words i said to her.Mommy loves you so much my precious. And as she always did she threw her head up and meowed at me as if she said i love you to mommy and as if she was telling me good by.But little did i know when i walked out my bedroom i would never here her sweet lil sassy meow again,30 minutes later i went back into my bedroom to go to my bathroom she was laying on my bed witch she appeared to be a sleep to me. When i came out of my bathroom i walked to my bedroom door and something stopped me. Before i opened my bedroom door i turned and looked at my precious lil Sissy as she was what i thought just sleeping.I spoke i called out to her.As i said Sissy!.She never responded to my call so once again i said a little louder SISSY!!. Still know response. Sissy always would look up at me when i would call out to her and of course do her lil sassy meow at me.So my words was OMG!!OMG!!. As i ran to her bed side to discover that my precious Sassy/Sissy has passed away. My precious Sissy had just passed away not long after i first left out of my bedroom cause she was still warm.That was a very hard time for me when my Sissy passed away it was almost like part of me had died with her.She had been a very big part of my life for so many years,I prayed that i would not have to have her put to sleep like i had to do with my oldest cat Heckel he was 17 yrs old and that tore me apart when i had to have him put to sleep.But my Sassy/Sissy passed away at home in her lil apartment room where she was very,very happy indeed).
THIS IS MY STORY ABOUT MY PRECIOUS AND BELOVED SASSY/SISSY AND IT WAS VERY HARD TO WRITE THIS AND REPLAY IT ALL OVER AGAIN AND THERE WAS LOTS OF TEARS SHEDDED WHILE WRITING THIS LETTER.I REALLY HOPE MY LETTER ABOUT MY SASSY/SISSY IS PUBLISHED IT WOULD MEAN THE WORLD TO ME AND IT WOULD BE LIKE MY SISSY IS STILL KEPT SO MUCH ALIVE
