With Love From Waffles to Katie

Welcome to Week 13 of our 15 week countdown to retirement! (Simply click on over to HERE should you missed the large announcement.) 

4 years in the past this month, we stated goodbye to our Katie. She was the inspiration for our weblog and for a few years, its sole voice. Glogirly wasn’t certain she’d ever discover the phrases for our weblog once more. However by way of the love of Waffles, she quickly realized it had by no means actually left her.

Only one week after Katie’s passing, we posted the next ideas of Waffles as he gazed out the window wanting in direction of the sky. He helped us all to smile once more, even when our eyes had been nonetheless leaky.

WAFFLES:  Howdy, earth to Boss! Are you there, Boss? Are available, Boss. 

WAFFLES:  Numerous persons are actually unhappy that you simply’re not right here, Boss. Particularly Glogirly. We’re OK, however I am not likely certain what I am purported to do with out you. Like what if I want recommendation about women and stuff. 

And what about breakfast? I haven’t got anyone’s meals to steal besides my very own. And that is not as a lot enjoyable as stealing yours. 

WAFFLES:  Glogirly says you are not coming again, Boss. Are you certain?? What if I ship you instructions or one thing. Is there GPS the place you’re, Boss? 

Don’t be concerned about your frog and your purple fuzzy coronary heart. I will handle them till I see you once more. 

One Week
Every week in the past Saturday, I stated my closing goodbye to my candy Katie Lady. It took me just a few days to achieve the braveness and energy to learn by way of all the attractive feedback buddies left on our weblog and on Fb. I used to be scared to learn them. Lacking her a lot, I questioned if I’d miss her much more. However after I began studying, I spotted how a lot my candy little lady meant to so many individuals. Individuals who’ve been following us for the reason that starting “shoelace incident” to people who only recently stumbled onto us.

I’ve by no means actually written about severe subjects like vitamin, well being, coaching, and so forth… It is at all times been about smiles and enjoyable, with some occasional heartfelt knowledge sprinkled in when Katie tried to elucidate the that means of affection, life, and loss to Waffles. I hadn’t realized what a distinction the foolish conversations between two cats had made within the lives of our buddies and readers.  And the way the photographs enabled them to grow to be a part of so many households apart from our personal. 

Figuring out that somebody began their day with Katie, and due to that it was an excellent day, means absolutely the world to me. That her cheeky knowledge and sarcastic wit wiped somebody’s unhappiness away is without doubt one of the biggest items of my life.

I assume what I am making an attempt to say is thanks. Thanks for loving Katie. Thanks for loving Waffles. Thanks for loving me. I’ve learn by way of each single remark right here and on Fb and have all of them saved with my many reminiscences of Katie. I do not ever wish to neglect a single one. You all have made this heartbreaking loss bearable. I’ve felt your love and luxury wrapped round me like a tender blanket.  

I have been holding Katie’s particular issues shut, the place I can see them, contact them, and keep in mind her. Her inexperienced frog that Gloman gave her 12 years in the past. Her purple MOM coronary heart she carried round in her mouth. Our picture from her very first night time with us that I later utilized in our first weblog header. And my favourite, the purple ribbon and Completely satisfied Anniversary tag she was sporting when Gloman introduced her house to me. 

Perpetually missed.

Perpetually beloved.
