Coco – January 19,2009

We had to say good-bye to our beautiful cat, Coco today.  She was a 4-5 year old rescue cat when we adopted her in January 2005.  This is a picture of her the first week she was with us.  The hair on the side of her face is a bit wet from the ear drops she needed.  She came to us with a long standing ear infection, but she brought much joy and love to our home.


She was my shadow.  If I was sewing, she was with me.  If I was knitting, she made sure the yarn flowed smoothly.  She slept at the foot of our bed – ignoring her plush cat bed.  Here she is “helping” me tie a Comfort quilt.


She did love fabric.  Here she is making sure the shibori I dyed this summer matched her blue eyes.  Yes, it did:

One of her very favorite things in the world, was to lie on her back and get a tummy rub.   She was such a graceful lady. Notice her gracefully folded paws:



She became ill suddenly, and I knew she was in trouble Sunday, confirmed by the vet on Monday.  She did not suffer.  She was dearly loved and will be sorely missed. 

We remember the laughter and joy which Coco has given us.  Help us to share kindness and care with all living things.  St Francis Blessing for deceased pets.

    Hi Diane

    Found you tonight by chance as I was trying to search for my blog site I saw your blog site and checked in to see your beautiful CoCo. I have an amazing white maincoon named Thor who stole my heart at first glance. I just imagine how sad you are. Thanks for reminding me to take pictures of my furry loved ones I haven’t done that and can’t even say why. I love them so much!
    Thanks again for sharing yours
