Rocket, our Cool Cat

Isabella's prayer last night
and convo with me
about our cat.
He will be going to Heaven tomorrow because of cancer.

Isabella: Dear Father, thank you for Rocket, we will miss him.
Thank you for my blessings.
Mom, I almost cried when I said that.
I am going to cry right now.
I am going to miss him so much.
And that little sweet girl cried and cried.
I felt her sadness over her entire body.
He's my best friend, he's my buddy.
He waits for me outside my room every morning.
I love him so much.
I just want to give him my heart.

As she was crying, she asked me,
Mom, will I see him in heaven?
How will he know when I am there?
He just will.
Do you think if I snap or whistle he will come to me?
I am going to miss him so much.

She woke up this morning and wanted to have a cupcake party
balloons and all to celebrate his life.
So thats what we did.
Right before bed
she looked at me with a sparkle in her eye and said
Can I write a note to him
tie it to the balloon
that way when
he gets to heaven he'll get my note.

Absolutely, I think that sounds great!

Rocket, one of the coolest cats on earth.
He is warm, loving and kind.
And has a special connection with Isabella.
We will miss him.

He laid with both kids last night.
First with Isabella
then over to Sophia.
It was like he knew.
It was great.
(sorry for his eyes in the last photo, it was just the flash)

Oh I am so sad. Beautiful post. We lost our sweet Meggie, 2 years ago and the kiddos and I still miss her so.

I am so sorry... that is so hard. I think it is so sweet how you celebrated Rocket with a party. Isabella... what a tender little girl.It is always difficult when you lose that"furry" family member. Thinking of you.

Wow, I was reaching for the Kleenex as I read this. How does such a little girl have such a profound and sweet idea of the balloon and note? I love that story.

I am so sorry that you and your family are loosing your baby! Your girls are so strong, and you are being such a good mama despite the pain I'm sure you're feeling too! I am thinking of you all,
