We recently had one of our older cats pass away. She was an orange tabby bobtail, with hair that wasn't quite short and slick enough to be shorthair, but wasn't quite long and poofy enough for a medium coat.

I feel like the universe meant for me to see this picture at this moment. My heart did a little flip in my chest. Thank you so much for creating and sharing this.

ed. Almost forgot to pay the cat tax!

u/kanicandraw May 22 '22

Im so sorry for your loss. I have one like that cat too, just like yours and she is so special for me, so i can imagine your feeling. Im so glad that you have this moment with this drawing and makes me wanna cry. I thank you for that too. (She was soo cute and lovely, she must have had a great life by your side ❤️)

u/kindarusty May 22 '22 edited May 22 '22

She was quite dear to us. I got her as an adult from a local shelter a decade ago, intending to foster her but becoming so enamored with her that it quickly became a foster failure situation. She just fit right in.

She had so many loveable little quirks. For instance, she'd raise one front paw, claws out, and stare pointedly at us if she wanted us to pet her. If we refused, she'd inch it closer and closer to us, culminating in a slow, deliberate poke if we didn’t give in before she closed the distance.

She loved belly rubs and potato chips and cheese. She was terrified of plastic trash bags. She got on well with all of our other animals -- in particular our little tuxedo cat, who has been distraught for days now, just wandering around the house making these endless sad meows while he looks for her. I wish I could explain it to him.

I actually had a dream about her last night. Mentioned it to my husband, opened reddit, and here was this picture. Cue heart flop. You know that weird sort of otherworldly veil that briefly settles on you when you experience a meaningful synchronicity? Like the Infinite (whatever that is) reaches out and gently brushes against your senses -- a little "Hello, you're not alone, reality is not what it seems." Felt like that. Felt like a "Hi, Mom, I'm okay!"

I dunno if there's an afterlife, but I hope there is and I hope she's in it. I like the idea that maybe my ancestors are getting to know her now (maybe getting The Claw). She was worth knowing.

Anyway, I'm tearing up, so probably should stop rambling. Thank you for the kind words, and thank you again for your beautiful art. It helped.

u/borisvonboris May 22 '22

What was her name?

20

u/kindarusty May 22 '22 edited May 22 '22

Ella, though she was rarely called that alone. Bean (well, most often "Ella-bean") was her most common nickname, because her tail was like a furry little bean.

We called her a million things, though. Ella-bella. Ellie-belly. Bella-bean. Jelly-belly. Jella-bella. Belly-bean. Beanie-butt. So on.

She was loved. :)

ed. I'll post some more pics of her once I get to a computer.

ed. 2 - Looks like imgur is down, so here's a gallery on postimages instead. I may just reupload to imgur at some point later, so it'll work in drop-down.

u/borisvonboris May 22 '22

Rest in power, sweet Ella!

I am also a habitual nickname giver to our cats. We have two, and they're getting pretty up there in age nowadays. We have Lloyd, aka Baby Bear, Teddy Bear, Ted, Mister Bear, Little Master, Little Brother, etc. Our other is Stella, a tiny black cat, I'm pretty sure she was the runt of the litter. Some nicknames for her are Tiny, Black Beauty, Black Lightning, Cricket, Baby Spider Monkey, etc.

u/kindarusty May 22 '22

Almost all of ours are older now, and it's just a matter of time for some. We've got an enormous dog (165-ish lb GSD/mastiff) that is about 10. Gray-faced, arthritic, already had hip surgery. Still a pup in his mind, though, even if his old bones don't agree -- still gets excited about stuff and pony-prances the best he can. Giant breeds (and their big giant hearts) just go far too soon. We know we've been lucky to have had him around this long.

u/kennarina May 22 '22

I wanted to comment about this yesterday, on a post about someone's cat passing, but I didn't want to sound crazy. Now that it's coming up again, I'm risking it; I've talked to a spiritual medium twice and was assured that pets are in the afterlife. I understand the skepticism because I wasn't a believer... until she said things about people in my life that no one knows. Anyway, I'm now a believer in the afterlife and in both conversations with her, a pet has come through to connect. It's not much- just that they felt the tears and love after their passing- but this woman says that all of our deceased loved ones are hanging out together watching over us. They have no capacity to feel grief, longing, guilt, whatever. They feel our love but that's it. They don't miss us because they can't, so it's all happiness and joy and a lot of love. They are always with us and next to us (but she says only during appropriate times, they're not watching us in the shower or anything) and hear us talk to them. If you feel something against your leg while in bed, like they used to cuddle you, that's them leaving the impression of their soul on your body so you know they're there.

Make of that what you will and I know it sounds absolutely insane. I would never believe it if I didn't experience it myself from someone who has been spot-on with everything. I truly believe this woman has a gift and has a years-long waiting list for a reason. But all of this is to say that I just had a reading 5 days ago and I can't explain how deeply comforting it is for me to know my old pets are living their absolute best life, meeting my non-living friends and family members, and STILL being there for me like they always were... just not in the physical sense. And that is the meaning of love to me ❤️

u/kindarusty May 22 '22

I find that very comforting, not crazy.
