Remembrance Day: Angel

Angels place

Hallo (Furry) Friends!

Today it’s Remembrance Day

So it won’t be me in the spotlight,

but Granny’s baby Angel…

I hope Granny doesn’t shed to many tears,

while I’m telling you the story

of my uncle Angel.

It was May 17 1995

and at half past 5 PM

Granny got a phone call of her best friend,

who was telling her

that her cat just gave birth to a baby.

Granny was all excited and happy,

picked up her stuff and got on her bike

to see the little newborn.

When she arrived at her friends house

they got upstairs immediatly

and found another little newborn in the basket…

an Angel was born at 5.55 hours.


Here’s the mother with her three newborns,

the white with grey is the little Angel.


The mother’s eldest daugther, who was pregnant too,

washed and took care of her and the baby’s

the whole time. Isn’t that lovely… sigh…


It was all clear that this little creature

wanted to be with Granny

and in one way or another

this was a sign from above

that she had to take Angel home after almost 9 weeks,

nobody wanted him anyway.


You see, Angel came into her life,

while her other cat ran away just a few month before.

The same happened when Angel went to Furryland

and I just entered her life..

Remarkable how God sends us little Angels

to overcome grief and sorrow…

Granny that means that I’m an Angel too huh?!


Isn’t he the sweetest little creature in the world..

except of me of course.


Little climber…




Here’s Angel with Granny’s other Angel Droppie…

they were always together..


Droppie opened the door for Angel..


They ate together…



Slept together…







Cute huh..?


Twofeet.. in fact my mom ๐Ÿ˜‰ and Angel playing together..



Young Granny and Angel..


His own couch…


After conquering a tumor,

Angel got tooth problems

and had to go to the vet

to restore them,

but he couldn’t handle the anaesthesia…

He died after 2 weeks on a heart attack ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


And this is Angel’s Place…

Come on my friends, I bring you there…


These flowers are for you Angel…

Angel's Place (2)

Beautiful place, isn’t it?

Angel's place

This is our Furryland..

Angel's Place3

here comes everyone together…





Do you see the dove walking in Angel’s Place?

Angels place

And this is what it looks like when everything begins to grow.

I love this place,

it’s the most serene place in our garden.

I have to comfort Granny now…

well.. you know why.



17-5-1995 – 14-10-2008

For always in my heart.

    So sad but such a beautiful tribute. Yes, God definitely sends us Angels to help. What a special cat and I know the pain of each loss never goes away but our lives would be so empty without having had the presence and keeping their memories.

    So sweet and sad at the same time. Our little furry friends add sunshine to our lives and are sorely missed when it is their time to depart. Hope your day brought back wonderful remembrances.

    BTW Thank you for visiting catnipoflife. Hope you will visit again ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a delightful story – how blessed Granny and Angel were to have each for all that time. Now she has you as her special angel, they definitely made sure you came to Granny just at the right time. How lovely is Angel’s resting place, I agree, it looks very serene. Love to you and Granny as you celebrate the life of Angel.

    A lovely post, granny is right we have angels bring us kitties when we need them most.We had our foster kitty Dinnermintz three times with our mum with bouts of catflu that kept going around the iso ward of the shelter..mum an dad decided she was meant to stay so adopted her..even though they already had 5 kitties..Dinnermintz a ginger female was with us for only a few months when we had to say godbye to our 17 year old ginger female Squash..ginger girls are hard to find so the angels gave mum and dad Dinnermintz just when they knew they would be getting Squash.The hardest thing is to say goodbye but never having them would have been harder xxxx
