My wonderful little boy

I can still remember the day that I first met Mischief in June 2000 at the pet store in Rota Spain. He was such a precious little one boy. I had just lost my puppy and wasn't looking for another pet. However, I just shouldn't keep from thinking about him while walking around. I went back to the store and bougth him and that was the start of our story. The vet told me that he was no more then 5 weeks old.

It took me a few weeks to find a name to fix his personality. It never fail after 12 hour shift to find him in the curtains, lamp shade, or higher. I would laugh at him as I picked him up and would ask if he was up to mischief. After a while it just stuck with him. I have never owned a Siamese and this was a new adventure.
We have been around that the country together. He has been a wonderful company for me as well as a great protector. There has only been one man that he has truly liked and didn't do anything to him. I have to laugh about the first guy that I dated after bringing him home. Mischief didn't like him one bit. He used his shoes as a litter box, grab him with his claws, or bite and run. LOL!!! Do I need to say more. After that, I would always listen to his advise in the love department. I now have a wonderful husband that loves Mischief just as much as I do.
Mischief has always had a healthy life. However, we were just told that he has lung cancer. This news has destroyed me. I can't believe that he will leave this world like this. He is only 12 years old. I have always thought that he would be with us for another 6 to 8 years but I guess the good Lord other plans in mind. I have decided not to put him through chemotherapy just keep him comfortable and happy.
He is laying in our lap as I am typing this and crying my eyes out. At this point, I know that I want to make his last days just as wonderful for him as he has made it for me. All the years of purring, wrestling, chase, and traveling.
I just wish everyone could experience the love from a Siamese like we have.

So sad for you
by: Rosa de Mey

As I read your blog I have my darling Siamese sitting on my shoulder and purring away, she often likes to sit there and has been known to jump on to someones shoulder from the floor and give them a big shock.
I feel so sad for you as I know I would not cope at all well in your position and it will be a huge wrench. You will be able to look back eventually at all the fond memories of your darling cat and know that it had a loving wonderful life with you.

My wonderful little boy put up a brave fight against his lung cancer. However, he lost the battle on 15Oct12. I was and still devastated by losing him. The house is so empty. He was always in the window waiting on me. That wonderful voice of his, LOL. You could be at the other end of the house and hear him clearly. I have gotten his remains and memorial stone back. Not sure where I want to display them. My husband has been great through this all. Here is a poem that I wrote just for him.

My wonderful Little Boy

What a wonderful little boy I had
As I sit and watch his face light with happiness and delight as our eyes met
What a wonderful day it is to have my little boy next to me
His love his companionship is always unwarying
He makes my days go by with such happiness and joy
Always excited to see me with that beautiful face
Always happy to be there even in the trying times.

Even those he may cause mischief
He is still my wonderful little boy
Oh how I will miss you
Oh how the tears will flow
The heart will ache with great sorrow
But I will know that the pain will be no more
That my wonderful little boy will suffer no more
That he will go to a wonderful place in the great beyond
With great hope that we will see one another again one day
Rest in peace my wonderful little boy.

Hope you're hanging in there. Sorry your friend has to go through this stuff, but I'm sure having his people's laps helps him quite a lot.
Take care

Hard to lose
by: Kathy OH

My heart goes out to you. Lost my 12 year old Sammi to cancer last May. He was one of a kind & my best buddy. Am laughing about what your cat did in the guys shoe(wise to listen to him) & tearing up because you'll be losing him sooner than you want. I wrote a bit about my Meow Tai Sammi (his fancy name)last May. Needed to connect somehow with Siamese people that would understand. Just this last Saturday I took his ashes to the Dungeness Spit near Sequim Wa state, where we had sprinkled my folks ashes into the waves. Added his in the same spot. Thought somehow it was the appropriate place. Sat on a log watching the waves go out & ate a Cadbury chocolate bar in honor of my chocolate point. Enjoy every moment you have. Your cat will always be in your heart.

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your wonderful Mischief with me, I can hardly type with the tears in my eyes. It is such a shame that our dear little friends will leave us oh too soon and we must say goodbye to them.

If it is any consolation to you, at least you can say that he had a wonderful life in a good home where he was truly loved and cherished.

God bless and go well and safely.

Best wishes,

Beatrice from Co. Wicklow in Ireland.
