sometimes i get SOOO busy, and i get very good at shoving things "under the rug" and ignoring them…. part of me wanted to let this day just pass by, but the majority of me couldn't let it happen.
i worked by myself today… it was *super* rainy so the store wasnt wicked busy… i had a looong to do list i was hustling to get done before our bus tour 2morrow…. but even with all that my mind would wander, and remember him.
i think about watcher a lot… i find myself comparing him and mister harley, they are SOOO different but in some ways very similar. i love mister harley to pieces, and hes a fabulous kitty… but i will always hold a special place in my heart for watcher.
my dad always tells mister harley that he has big shoes to fill 😉 and to be good cause watcher is looking after him ha! so, really just a day of reflection… memories and remember how watcher truly was watcher the wonder kitty.
yes he was just a cat.. but to me he was a good friend, and one i will never forget :)
love you watcher.
So are you sure Mister Harley is not Watcher reincarnated? I mean look at the way they were laying on that ottoman. Very cute! Definitely sad that Watcher passed, but good that Mister Harley is there for you now.
aww 🙁 i still remember reading about watcher’s passing last year… i cried and cried and cried.
my kitty will be 16 on november 7th… he’s my best little friend. even though i torture him with super high-pitched whistling – a trick i learned last year. he ALWAYS comes running to a steady high pitched whistle and jumps up on my lap and touches my mouth with his paw to make it stop and turns into the cuddliest little puss.
i think i’ll go have a snuggle with my little man now 🙂
I’m sorry Jenn…big hugs to you! Watcher and Mr. Harley are such beautiful cats…Animals are the best arent they? They always give us love no matter what!
I am sure Watcher loved you a whole bunch!!
Blogs are so informative where we get lots of information on any topic. Nice job keep it up!!
Big hugs to you Jenn!
Awww, Jenn. What a tough day that must have been. Hugs to you!!
memories are what keeps our hearts big and strong 🙂
Oh now I’ve got to find a tissue, seriously you have many happy memories of Watcher, Mr Harley is a very different cat and I’m sure well aware of the shoes he has to fit but he has shown you how he needs you. 🙂
Looks like Mr. Harley is filling those shoes just fine or should I say paws… Cute
Your post made me teary-eyed. I can tell how much much you loved your Watcher. I know exactly how you feel. I’ve lost furry family members over the years and they all have special places in my heart to this day. Mister Harley does have big shoes to fill, but he always looks like he’s happy that he found you for his special person. Cats are that way, it seems. Cats need their people as much as we need them, even if they don’t always show it.
I totally feel your pain and understand where you’re coming from.
Hugs to you,
Watcher was so much more than just a kitty we ALL know that… come on now 🙂 We will always remember Watcher but we still love Mr. Harley! xoxoxo
((hugs)) Anyone who says “just” a cat doesn’t get having a loving pet in your life.
They’re so much more!!!
My precious old black lab that passed away 5 years ago still gets me choked up.
Hugs to you, Jenn!
What amazes me is that there are days where I am also reminded of Watcher & he wasn’t even my cat!! 🙂 I think of him almost every day when I see the orange kitty in my new neighborhood… And because of that, I also think of you. And that is pretty cool!! MISS YOU!!
You made me tear up reading your post. Thinking of you today. Hugs!
Awwwww It is very hard to lose a beloved pet! Hugsss to you jenn!!! I bet Watcher was a wonderful kitty! You are very lucky to have Mister Harley now!
I know my kitty “Skittles” is getting up there in age, she’s 15 now. She’s the sweetest thing ever!!!
Always remember the good times you had with Watcher! He will always be with you in your heart!!
Your post gave me a twinge thinkin’ ’bout my Harley! I think of her every day. Still miss my girl. Sigh…
ohhhh… that’s my Harley Boy… filling in those cute little Watcher gaps when he can!! xoxox I miss that sweet old man Watcher…
