I had to say goodbye to my best boyfriend today.......

The first time I saw him, I was a goner. He was a feisty redhead with a big attitude. I've always had a soft spot for bad little boys and he sure fit the bill. He was so naughty that he had been separated from the others because he wouldn't leave them alone. His own mother was done with his bad behavior and I was madly, adamantly and completely head over heels in love with him.


Sunny Bunny Boo Boo Head aka Sunny J. Bunnyfur lived through St. Bernard puppies, helped entertain GK when she was a baby, learned to adapt to more people and animals move into his space and always maintained the same attitude through out the years......you peasants are in my way and get away from her, she is my Momma. He was called every name in the book because of his "winning" attitude, SOB being the most common choice but I always called him Mr. Bunny Boo.

We said good bye this morning after having our love affair for 15 and 1/2 years. He was ready and so was I. He had been in poor health for a year. He stuck around long enough to have loved Cybella and to teach Uma the ropes of running the house. He and Cybella are now together again and waiting on me on the other side.

I must say this was the easiest parting I have had with a fur baby. It was just the way it was to be. Sunny snuggled into my arms on the car ride. He never ever would snuggle down. He always had to be in charge and fuss about. But today he was dependent on me to calm him and we enjoyed our time together. I am at peace as is his sweet ginger tabby manx self. Fare thee well my sweet bad boy.

  5. Big Hugs Oma Linda! What a precious cat! A very special relationship you both had ;o) I remember when I had to put down my Falco. It was the same way. It was time, but I still miss him!

  9. So sorry about the loss of your fur baby :(
    We lost our old king of the house Batman at the ripe old age of 17 yrs back at the beginning of the year. Followed shortly there after by our 12 year old Saint Bernard Lilly in mid February. We knew it was for the best for him and for her, but it was still sad to lose them both so close together.
    I'm glad your parting was filled with love and snuggles.

    Hugs

  11. Oh, Mr. Bunny Boo, what a great life you had, finding a home where you could be your bad boy self and be loved for it. I'm so glad you had a soft landing into the otherworld, and settled down at last into the soft cradle of your mother's arms.

  12. It was my Max that I snuggled and held and he looked directly into my eyes as he went to sleep. I can still feel his loss in my heart. Your pet knows when they are ready and you have my heart today Linda.

  16. My very first visit to your lovely blog, I ended up reading so much, it was a lovely way to spend an evening. I miss my cat so much that to read about other experiences makes it ok for me to talk about her more.

  17. While it is sad when they pass before us, it sounds as if he lived life on his own terms. He knew love (both human and feline) and he helped train another generation to carry on. He left a legacy.
    remember the best times and the stories that are funny now, altho the humor may have been hard to see at the time.

  18. Those sweet adorable furred companions always steal a little of your heart and keep it evermore. Sweet Sunny Bunny Boo Boo Head, ah what a wonderful name, sounds like his personality was just as expansive and his life as big and wonderful as his nane hints too. Sorry for your loss Oma, thinking of you and all Sunny J's house buddies x

  19. My deepest condolences for your loss. I know how much our pets mean to us. I just had a big, gray cat adopt me a couple of months ago. Why, I don't know, but I sure am fond of him now!!!

  20. What a beautiful love affair you and your Sunny Bunny Boo Boo had. Goodbyes always suck but it sounds like you gave him an amazing life. Thank you for sharing your gorgeous boy. Run free Sunny Bunny Boo Boo.

  21. Saying good bye is never easy and making the decision is the hardest part. Maybe he and Mighty will play fight when they meet. Mighty loved a good tussle with his favorite cat.

  22. Oh honey, tears are spilling down my cheeks. This is such a beautiful tribute to your red headed bad boy love. Mr. Sunny Bunny Boo Boo will be fiercely missed by all, and I think the peace in which you felt throughout is only a testiment to your spiritual strength. Warmest hugs and kisses sweetie. Mina

  23. OH my goodness..everything happens at once. You have lost another fur baby but this one had a good, long life. Although it's never enough. I think our fur babies should live as long as we do- that's not asking too much, is it? But your Bunny Boo will be with Cybella, as you said, and he was there for Uma. So a little bit of him will always be in her. You gave him a wonderful home, Gnoma. And the love goes on for all time.

  25. Your red haired bad boy will be ruling the roost across the Rainbow Bridge and will line everyone up to welcome his Queen when you go over to join him. Sweet dreams, you beautiful ginger prince. Lots of hugs and love to you, sweet Oma.
