Mumsie

Mumsie

Mumsie sadly passed away on November 29, 2015, but not before living an incredibly full and rich life. She was one of three cats cats to be dropped off and abandoned at the O'Keefe Ranch over 10 years ago. Two of them were pregnant at the time and one of them was Mumsie. The live-in ranch manager at the time, Ken Mather, and his family took Mumsie in and cared for her and her newly adopted pregnant sister Bonita as they both gave birth to many kittens. She was called "Mumsie" because she would even nurse Bonita's kittens as well as her own. On Mother's day that year at the Ranch, the kittens were offered to any visitors who wanted to give them a good home. They were all adopted by the end of the day. Mumsie then lived happily with the Mathers as they went on with their lives. She came into my life because I began dating the younger Mather son in 2008. He and I decided to bring Mumsie into our erratic, young, student-lives soon after and moved her into our apartment. She loved warm laps, loved all human beings, and loved the outdoors. Our very good friends and their young daughter Harli also cared for Mumsie in the last few years of her life as my partner and I temporarily moved across the country; they affectionately called her "Chumsie." In the last few months of her life she lived with me and my family, who, aside from me, do not particularly like animals or pets. Despite being initially displeased with me bringing Mumsie into our family's home, she won their hearts almost immediately. My grumpy brother, who is allergic to cats, would let her sit on his lap every night, and my even grumpier father would clean her fur with a damp cloth. It was a very sad day for everybody who had experienced Mumsie's love and company the day she passed away. Now my family is unwilling to welcome a new cat because Mumsie had been so special and it was very hard to lose her. The Japanese traditionally cremate their loved ones so my mother was adamant about cremation. Thanks to the support and compassion of Armstrong's Halo Pet Cremation, I was not only able to grant my mother's wishes in a timely manner but able to spread Mumsie's ashes in our yard, a place she had spent many warm afternoons exploring and enjoying in the last months of her life. She was a very special cat and I am very lucky to have had her in my life.

Her Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of her as gone away-
her journey has just begun.
Life holds many facets,
the Earth is only one.

Just think of her as resting from
the sorrows and the tears,
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days, no months or years.

And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched,
For nothing loved is ever lost
And she was loved so much.

Four Feet in Heaven

Your favourite chair is vacant now...
No eager purrs to greet me.
No softly padded paws
to run ecstatically to meet me.

No coaxing rubs nor plaintive cry
Will say it's time for feeding.
I've put away your bowl, and all the things
You won't be needing;

But I will miss you little friend,
For I could never measure
The happiness you brought me,
The comfort and the pleasure.

Our little Indy came to us as a stray. Even though our home was full of pets, and that we had decided wouldn't adopt any more, her ice-blue eyes melted our hearts and she joined our family. She enjoyed a long and happy life filled with love.

I lost a special friend today
the kind you can't replace,
and looking at her empty bed
I still can see her face.

I know she's in a special place
our Lord has for such friends,
Where meadows,
fields & flowers
help make them strong and whole again.

I know she's watching over me
She'll be with me when I cry,
So with one more kiss on her beloved head
I told my friend goodbye.

Miko was a little guy with a big personality. He came to us with a salty vocabulary which always made us laugh. He loved music, especially country music, and would dance and sing to Shania.

He'd bounce up and down and flap his wings when we did the "chicken dance" with him.
