1It was one year ago today that my dear
Mickey the Black Cat went to
My friend Karla,
Mom to the late,
made this beautiful picture in memory
of my Mickey Moonshine.
I was captivated by this figurine my
Mother gave to me.It was a perfect
fit for calling Mickey, "Mickey Moonshine"
This is one of my favourite pictures of Mickey.
He was such a handsome Mancat!
This is one of the earliest pictures of Mickey
when we started this blog, in August 2007.
It is hard to do a memorial and decide what things
to say and include.It is easy to get carried away
with all the wonderful memories spanning 17 years,
but I decided to focus on some of Mickey's
First and foremost,Mickey loved grass!!!!
As soon as the grass started growing, he
demanded I bring him some every time
I came inside! He could never get enough.
Mickey also loved windows! No matter
where we lived, he had to be near a
There was always so much to see and he loved to
watch for Mom!!
Mickey could not get enough brushing either!
When I started to brush my hair,he felt it was time
for me to brush him as well!! He would always purr
and never wanted me to stop.
In December 2010,I let Mickey outside as it
was a warm day.I believe this was one of his
happiest times! He got to walk on and enjoy his
beloved grass!! He was SO happy!!!
In October of 2007, Mickey started courting Miss Peach.
On Valentine's Day 2009,Mickey proposed to Miss Peach.
She said "Yes" !
A happy Halloween day!!!!!!!!!!
Dear Miss Peach crossed the Rainbow Bridge
this past August.
Now,Mickey Moonshine and his Sunshine Wife
are together forever !!
Mickey also loved his family. While he was an only cat for
many years, he accepted the addition of other kitties.
As he got older,he had a room to himself where he could sleep
and get away from the younger,boisterous kitties.
Mickey was a happy boy and a pleasure to have in my life.
Mickey will always be with me.
He will be in my heart forever!!!
Until we meet again,
Goodnight sweet prince!!!
