five years

I can't believe it's been five years today that my amazing Max went over the bridge after a prolonged battle with CRF.

October 23, 2007

Max was my first cat. He set the standard for all cats. He was the perfect blend of playful, snuggly, and curious.

March 15, 2008
Max sometimes forgot to retract his tongue all the way!

Feb 14, 2008
He was a big cat.

July 5, 2009
He always slept upside down!

Feb 28, 2007
Yarn balls were his favorite toy.

July 11, 2007
He always enjoyed exploring the yard on his harness and leash.

March 8, 2008
Five years later and my heart still hurts like it was yesterday.

I long to gaze into your eyes while holding you upside down in my arms. 

I miss rubbing your soft furry tummy while you purred and purred.

Your desire for bopping your nose to my nose always delighted my heart.

I miss you my sweet beloved Max.


  1. (((Hugs))) and purrs to you today. They never leave us, and the ache never seems to go away, not really.

  2. They stay a part of our heart forever. Hugs!

  3. what a sweet reminder of a wonderful boy...

  4. That was such a wonderful and loving tribute. Hugs from all of us.

  5. It made my heart ache. Knowing this sadness too well myself I can totally identify with the feelings you are describing. Max will always be your heart kitty. What a beautiful beautiful boy he IS and always will be. (hugs)

  6. What a very handsome boy your Max was. GORGEOUS! Bet he was super nice and smart, too. No wonder he still has a special place there in your heart.


  7. Such a beautiful tribute and such a handsome boy. M says she's loved all her kitties, but says I'm extra special to her too. Thanks for sharing him with us.

  8. It's so hard, I know. What a lucky boy he was to have you to love. Although his life was short he was still one of the most fortunate cats to have the safety and security of a loving home. Enjoy your memories. Hugs

  9. Our furry friends stay in our heart forever!
    Sendind hugs!

    Luv and Hugs and Kitty Kisses ♥♥♥


  11. That sure was a nice tribute to Max. He sure was a handsome boy and a lucky kitty to have had such a good Dad. Big hugs to you today

  12. Thank you for sharing your memories of sweet Max. There are some cats that come along that are once in a lifetime cats. Max was one. I know the pain you have. He was a beautiful cat with perfect whiskers! It seems that we never have enough time with the ones we love so deeply.

  13. We never get over them, nor should we. This touched me; I can empathize.

  14. Aw, what a great kitty! The Human says there is nuffing in all the world cuter than a kitty who forgets to put his little pink tongue all the way back in his mouf, and she is disappointed that I am not one of those kitties who regularly forgets, MOL. We think you and Max prolly had a lot of great times together XOXOXOX

  15. I agree that playful, snuggly and curious are the perfect combination for a great cat. And I know what it's like to miss one that leaves.

  16. I empathize complete;y. My heart squeezes painfully over Robin, Hopping John and the Admiral. It just kills me. It almost kept me from getting Katie but she was chosen for me..I can tell. Love and hugs, We ALL understand.

  17. You never stop missing's hard. He looks like a wonderful boy...xo
