RIP Simba.


There is something so devastating about losing a pet.
It's sort of like losing a family member.
I remember, about 4 1/2 years ago, when my two kitties, Topaz and Key-o, passed away at age 18. (yea, they were old and senile ha). I was a mess. Those cats were basically mine. 
Yes, I know, most people hate cats. 
I don't even care. 
I love animals. 
All animals. 
So when I found out that our kitty, Simba, went outside last night and has yet to return, I was actually super bummed. My parents got Simba the summer before I left for college, so I haven't been around very much, but I always loved playing with him when I returned home.

Yes, I am aware that this may be the most pathetic post known to man.
Judge me, I dare.

He was a pretty cat, OKAY.
He was a psycho cat that looked like a girl.
But he was still MY crazy, psycho female-looking cat!

RIP Simba Sue:
you crazy, weirdo, too-pretty-to-be-a-boy, spoiled, diva fraidy-cat pet...

It doesn't help that I am already on edge. 
I woke up with a severe migraine this morning. 
Just let me be sad. K?
Love you mom & dad. Hope you're doing okay!


*Yes, I am one of those people who took lots of pictures of our pet cat.
You sure you all still want to be my friend?


  1. sorry for your loss. i know how tough that can be. i lost my first puppy back in 1997 and i still miss him! i'm sure that simba sue will always have a special place in your heart :)
    the blog party sounds like so much fun! don't think i will be able to make it though as i'm a couple of time zones away, but have fun! :)

  2. My parents cat is named Simba too! I am so not a cat person but I would be so sad if he died. I totally understand, pets totally become family! :)
    Sad day! Sorry!

  3. Hey girl! Just saw your comment on my blog! Waffle party? But of course! Let me double check my schedule that night to just be 100% sure :)
    ps- sorry about your cat. He was an awfully cute dude

  4. OH no.............. I'm sooooo sorry!!! I know what it is like to lose a pet... I had a cat when I was 4 and she died when i was 22! She was 18 just like your first ones... now we have 2 more! they are only 2 years old, so yes, yes and yes I LOVE cats! I guess we are just a crazy rare type... Again, soooo sooo sorry for your loss, I can't imagine losing another pet right now... =(

  5. Losing a pet is so hard. I've lost so many and it never gets easier. Wish I had better words but thinking of you regardless.

  6. Awe too sad.. your cat was so dang cute! Just know he's in a better place now with Heavenly Father (:

    Dearest Lou
