Repost Friday: Scoop

Monday was the 3rd anniversary of Scoop's death.  I didn't say anything at the time because I still miss my old fuzzy a lot.

I miss the way Scoop curled up in the crook of my arm in his best Doughnut Impression.

I miss the way Scoop shouted MEOW RAUUUUW to announce he was back from his walk.

I loved his corkscrew tail that made him such an icon of the kampung kuching, the Malaysian kitty.

I loved the way he was so kind to Au when he was a tiny baby cat.

I even miss the way Scoop used to try and shout me out of bed at 3AM, and the way he's stand just behind the door and pop his head round for each shout, so that my Ammunition Pillow sailed harmlessly past him. 

Scoop was a great cat.

A lovely tribute to Scoop. Some cats never leave us. The Woman still misses her Iggy Cat and the Siamese who came before too.

Their love and antics really dug deep in our memories and hearts, don't they?

Scoop was so handsome - we love orange cats but don't have any! Maybe we like them even more cuz of that.

I think we will always remember our cats that are no longer with us. Scoop is such a cute name. He was beautiful. How old was he?
It's nice to have special memories, even if they make us sad sometimes.
My Mr. Sunshine left me in Nov. of 2001. I still cry sometimes and have a little photo album of all his pictures close by.

I love his tail! We never forget those who came before. My mom still misses each and every one of our guardian angels.

I understand that feeling. There are so many things that would remind me of one my rainbow furry. I'm always grateful for the memories we built together. Scoop was indeed a special boy and I enjoy listening to stories of him. :)

Lots of (((hugs))) and kitty kisses to all.

Our mom still misses her first adoptee, Chumley, who passed suddenly and unexpectedly the night of Jan. 24/07.

Those we love never truly leave us!

We think Scoop was a real character - he will still be watching over you.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Yes, we miss each one when they leave us. Scoop sounds like he was an interesting and fun cat. Purrs and tail wags.

Katnip Lounge said...

You painted a wonderful picture of Scoop. He sounds like he was a Great One-in-a-Million Kitty. And quick to dodge the Pillow! Peace.

I miss Scoop too. I read all your articles about him and felt as though I knew him as well as my own babies. Sending Scoop Boy my love, and lighting a candle for him this World Animal Day.

What a great tribute! Scoop was a gorgeous cat - both the photos are really nice (cannot believe how small Au was!) Our senior cats Fletcher and Henry died in late 2006 and early 2007 and we still miss both of them so much that it's sometimes hard to talk about them.

I am so sorry! I do know how you feel...I lost my beloved Bobo about 3 yrs ago as well...there are so many things I miss about him but I know he is watching over me just like your "Scoop" is watching over you.

"Scoop" was an adorable kitty...hugs to you...

Sending comforting purrrss to you all.

Kitikata-san said...

Oh, I miss Scoop too. Kiss Kiss, Hug Hug, Purr Purr to you.

I could really feel your pain here...losing a beloved pet really hurts. Although I lost Brownie almost 5 years ago, I still miss him a lot.
