My Sweet Little Cali

I said goodbye to my lovely little girl this morning. I know she's no longer in pain and I know I did the right thing, but my heart is breaking. She was my little Walmart Greeter - always licking the forehead of her sisters every time she walked by them. Every time. She was a tender, gentle little 7 lb. angel.


She was also a bit of a scamp. Cleo doesn't like to be touched, so when she would be in Cali's favorite place on the cat tree, Cali would jump up on the nearest level and lightly touch Cleo. Of course Cleo would growl and jump down, and Cali would take her place, happy as a clam.


A few nights ago when I went to bed, she crawled up on top of me, put her arm around my neck and laid her little face next to mine. It was the sweetest thing ever and I'll always remember it.













holding hands with her sister, watching a scary movie with me









on the left, trying to look innocent when I caught them wrestling











Trying to convince me that this teeny, tiny cat bed will be just fine, thank you

So sorry to read this. She reminds me of my little old calico who crossed the bridge years ago. Sweet cat.

Once upon a time I also had a set of sister cats, and one was the sweetheart Walmart Greeter type.

Much sympathy to you. Hard times.

What a beautiful angel she will always be. She had a great heart that she shared with those that were in her reach. Iím glad you found each other.

Thanks, all. Nice to know there was another WG cat. I'd like to think she welcomed Cali to the Bridge.

Marie,
I'm so sorry. No matter much advance warning you can never be prepared.
I know that MowMow was waiting for her over the bridge with snuzzles and face smashes. They will be the most perfect partners in crime!

Cali needs a new partner in crime.


Here she is plotting with Cleo. Apparently they think whatever they have in mind is quite hilarious.

So sorry to hear of Cali's passing, but it was peacefu,l and absolutely beautiful the way she put her arm on your neck and snuggled her face to yours......very precious girl! I've always thought calicos are special cats. I had a sweetheart calico many years ago called "Magic Marker" and I still miss her from time to time.
