Cat Memorial: Neenie from High Point

by Beverly
(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.

Hi Beverly, I just lost one of my cats, Little Girl, on Sunday and that's when I discovered this site. It has helped me cope some with the loss of my lovely companion.

I was so touched and saddened by your story. Both Evan and Neen were absolutely adorable cats and I'm sure you feel blessed for being able to enjoy their company for such a long time.

The way they snuggle and were inseparable remind me of Little Girl and her brother Brownie (whom I lost a few years ago). They would snuggle same as your Evan and Neen. I called it the ying-yang of love. :)

I couldn't imagine the pain you must be feeling for losing both your little babies so close together but I'm sure Neenie is happy to have her Evan back. My heart goes out to you and all the best in your healing.

I'm sorry for your loss, Beverly. To lose two cats in such a short time frame is so hard (it's hard enough losing one). They were both so beautiful and so cute together! RIP little kitties Evan and Neenie.
