Good-bye to a special little cat

Upside down cat

My family's younger cat MeiMei passed away unexpectedly a few days ago. She was only 8 years old. The bonds that can form between humans and animals truly are some of the most mysterious, precious and wonderful relationships. MeiMei gave me unconditional love and affection during a very hard time in my life; she was a constant through all the ups and downs. I miss her and I'm not sure when I'll get used to talking about her in the past tense, or knowing that she won't be there the next time I go back to California.

For more on why I called MeiMei my angel cat, please read my tribute to her on my other blog.


  1. Awww I'm sorry. Losing a pet is always so hard.
    Big hugs!

  2. I'm so sorry for your loss. MeiMei, sounds like that best cat a girl could've asked for.

  3. How sad! The first thing I thought as I scrolled down is "Wow! That cat looks like my late cat, Pepper..."

    And then to immediately learn that your cat has also passed... what a terrible feeling.
    Feel better!
