In Memory Of My Cat Russ

I am writing this post with a heavy heart while I am crying at the loss of my Dear cat feline friend Russ. Russ passed away  sometime between 10 AM and 1 Pm on March 24th, 2020. When I feed and watered my cats in the morning Russ looked fine.  I walked into the house next door this afternoon and cleaned the liter boxes and and when I walked into the living room I found Russ dead on the living room floor. I started sobbing uncontrollably when I found Russ on the floor. I tried to revive him  because he was still warm to the touch even though I knew he was already dead.

Russ was born on May 28th 2012. He was given to me by church friends. Russ was a lovely and gorgeous cream colored kitten. He had an excellent disposition and he always liked to be held and patted on the head. He liked everyone that came to visit him.

I would let him outdoors in the warmer months and he loved to eat grass and roll around on the sidewalk outdoors. He got along fine with all of my other cats next door. Russ and Nicole became best friends and they would sleep side by side on a big plush bed on top of a table. Russ was an excellent baby sitter when Addi had her kittens. Russ would let the kittens play with his tale. Russ would lick the kittens very gently and I am sure they thought of him as Uncle Russ.

Russ would always greet me at the door in the morning. He liked to play with cat toy mice and cat toy signing birds. He loved to rest on the high perch of a cat tree and look out of the window at the birds and any other animal that may be passing by at the moment.

Russ licked my hand very gently and lovingly yesterday. He was such a kind and remarkable loving cat. I had interned to have Russ in my house one day but that will never happen now. Russ will always hold a dear and warm spot in my heart and in my soul. March seems to be a month when  people or pets that I love dearly die.

My only solace is that I know Russ is in heaven as God has called such a dear and loving cat home. God welcomed Russ home with outstretched arms.  Russ is playing with all of my other feline friends that I have lost over the years.  I am sure  my parents in heaven know that I lost my dear Russ and that he is with them also.  I buried him this afternoon and I put a cat tombstone on his grave site. God will take care of you now Russ into eternity. I am grateful to God that he let me have such a kind and loving Russ in my life for as long as he did. God knew that I needed Russ in my life and now God needed Russ in heaven.

Isaiah 41: 10

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed. for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
