It’s finally summer! Eh, it’s supposed to be summer! So it’s time for another Cat of the Month! I know this one is earlier than usual. But that’s because I’m going to be gone for the weekend to Belgium! Next to that, this is going to be a special Cat Of the Month!
You can find the previous COTM – May here.
This beautiful lady is Evangeline. Born in 2000, and passed away on June 7, 2012. Evangeline is a cat rescued by Alienredqueen. She was approximately a year and four months old when ARQ got her from the Humane Society. Evangeline (also called ‘Princess Putter Pants’) made her laugh, she was her buddy. She would keep her company, Evangeline became her baby.
Sadly, she passed away on June, the 7th. Probably from either saddle thrombus or cancer. She passed away on ARQ’s lap when they were on their way to the vet. Evangeline was roughly 11 or 12 when she passed away.
This pretty shorthaired tabby-lady liked cuddling on the couch with ARQ and she went bonkers for catnip. She liked to sit with her when ARQ took a bath. She was a ‘dignified lady’.
Your favorite chair is vacant now…
No eager purrs to greet me.
No softly padded paws to run
Ecstatically to meet me.
No coaxing rubs, no 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.
And since God put you here to share
In earthly joy and sorrow;
I’m sure there’ll be a place for you
In Heaven’s bright tomorrow…
By Alice E. Chase.
