Cat Memorial: Neenie from High Point
(High Point, NC)
A long time ago, Neen came into my life, or really in Evan's life. Evan passed on November 4, 2011 after seventeen wonderful years.
He was my rock, God manifested in cat if you will. He was in my life when really there were no others, and I believe God used him to show love to me... that I was lovable and loved.
Neenie was Evan's constant companion for all but one year of Evan's life. She was given to me so that Evan wouldn't mourn the missing of my ex-husband of whom he adored.
Little did I know that Neen and Evan would be the real love story here. They were inseparable.
Neen was a caring and patient cat and she devoted 100 percent of her time doting on Evan constantly. He would try sometimes to get away from her, but she would follow him everywhere.
On Tuesday February 7, 2012, she followed him into Heaven. She served me, for three months and three days after serving Evan for so long.
She was my little rock after my beloved Evan died and I know without a doubt, upon her arrival into Heaven, God looked at her and said, "Well done, my good and faithful servant, well done."
She spent her entire life taking care of others and was the most selfless being I have ever known. If I could model myself upon her, I would be pleased, but because I am human and she was not, I will never succeed. She was by far a better "person" than I will ever be.
I miss my little girl. I was with her as she passed naturally. Her little soul gave up from what I believe was a broken heart.
She wanted so much to be with her Evan again and at seventeen years old her little body has stayed here as long as it could. She knew I needed her the days and weeks after Evan passed and she knew I needed her to get through the holidays as he passed right at their start.
Once she saw I was strong enough, she decided it was time to go home. I think in her own way, she decided to go and asked God if it were OK and He said yes. "Come home little one, your Evan is right here."
As I faded from her sight that sunny day, her beautiful Evan took my place, once again by her side. The difference this time is that it's forever, never to be parted again.
I see them both in my mind's eye, curled up like they always did, in a beautiful garden at Jesus' feet. One day, we will all be together again, but until then RIP my sweet, beloved ones. I miss you both very much.
