Good Cat Chase

This is Chase and he was a good cat.


We had him since he was a kitten. As a matter of fact, his mother, Zebrina, almost gave birth to him on my lap. But that's a tale for another time.



He was a strong, sturdy cat from the first...his mother's favorite. She took prodigious care of him, her first born-- and knew he was to lead forth with the family line...which he did. Pretty sure he got his sister pregnant. One of her kittens looked just like Chase.

He was lax and lazy, sweet of temper and docile as they come. He loved chasing frogs and--yikes!--snakes and usually brought them still alive into the garage for Brandon to--ah, appreciate?

Chase was a fat cat, but that extra weight may have saved him in the end...to a point.

He had been a 25 pounder until he vanished for two days. He then lost so much weight, lost his desire for food and wasted down to 9.5 at the end. We still don't know why or what happened. He couldn't tell us and the vets--after extensive tests--knew little more than he was telling. We just knew he was in pain and wished to go.

So, we let him join his Mama over rainbow bridge as they say. Good cat Chase. We won't forget him too soon.

  1. The little furry ones in our lives give us so much and require so little in return.

    A lovely tribute to your little friend, Glory.

  4. Oh Glory, I'm so sorry you lost Chase. And so soon after Zebrina too. Letting him go must have been so difficult. Rest assured that now that Chase is reunited with his mama, he's happy again.

  6. Glory, my friend, I am so sorry to see you sad, but with the illness, clearly letting Chase move on was the kind and loving thing to do.
    He was beautiful, and remember, he was spoiled silly, lived a great life with you and Tom as his people. You won't forget, he will be with you in spirit for your lifetime.
    It's always hard to let a beloved pet, of any variety move on when terribly ill or in pain--but it is the gentle love you had for Chase that allowed you and Tom to put Chase first. ((HUGS))

  7. They come into our lives and make a place for themselves in our hearts. We call them pets, but they are really a part of our families. When they leave, they leave holes in the places they occupied: our homes, our hearts, and our lives.

    Their spirits live on, within us, for they have touched and affected us in ways we often don't recognize. In that way, Chase's spirit lives on, and always will.
