In memory of our beloved Simba



It’s been only about two hours but I’m already missing you.
I thought I might see you at all your favourite spots
But you are no longer around.
I looked under my bed where you were for the past two nights
But I could not find you there.
I thought I heard you calling me
But when I turned, you weren’t there.
Your loving nature,
Your frisky energy,
Your cute actions,
Your mellow obedience
Your superb intelligence,
And your human-like aura
Will be missed by all of us.
You have brought great joy to the whole family
You have fought hard to remain here in this loving home
You have spent a fulfilling time here with us
But we know that you have moved on to a better place
Where you can be your free spirited self once again.
And that’s in the beautiful garden of God.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Simba has passed away peacefully this afternoon.

During her time back at home from the vet, she tried to spend time with everyone in the family. She didn’t really wanna sleep on her favourite chair or on the cushions. She slept under my parents’ bed and sink. She jumped up onto my da jie and er jie’s bed and slept under my bed too.

I think she knew she was going and had decided to spend time with everybody in the family.

All good things must come to an end. I’m sorry that she didn’t live much longer. She was such a strong cat that we believed she would outlive her death sentence. But some things are just not meant to be and I have to learn to let go. She did not show signs of suffering and I’m glad for that. She should have reached her paradise by now. Looking down from above, she must be telling us not to cry anymore.

I’m grateful that jie had picked her up in 1999 and allowed her to warm the house. Life will never be the same without her around and I will miss her more than she ever imagined.
