Teddy has been sick for quite some time. Today she passed on.
Many think Teddy was a ‘he’ but in fact ‘she’ was a ‘she.’ When we got Teddy…
…we didn’t know what to name her. We decided to watch her for the day and see if a name was revealed to us. She was quite a spunky feisty troublemaker. That night we were watching the TV show “Sisters” and the character Teddy was being feisty and getting into trouble. We looked at one another and said…her name is Teddy.
I wanted to spend time with Teddy last night knowing what was coming today. She never was much of a lap kitty. But she had a habit of crawling up onto my lap when I read. Actually she would crawl onto the book and spread out making reading impossible. So I devised a 2 book solution. I would lay open one big book in my lap for her to lay on and then be able to hold the second book from which I could then read.
So last night I laid in bed with a big open book in my lap while holding and reading aloud from a second…To Kill A Mockingbird. Teddy laid at my feet seeming to enjoy the reading and eventually came onto my “lap book.” I then pet her for hours and We had our goodbye.
Incredibly today Teddy was just a little bit feisty at the end. My vet said, “If she hadn’t been, she just would not have been Teddy.” So true.
I am so sad beyond my words now.
Teddy I will miss you so very much.
I love you and Thank You…you sweet being.
