Saying Goodbye to Timmy

It is impossible for me to believe that Timmy the Tiger is gone. He was the feline soul mate of my friend, Kathy Hanson. Kathy was always good about keeping me up-to-date on the many adventures this fabulous twosome shared over their 10 1/2 years together.

But it was their monthly column in a California newspaper that kept me connected to the heart and soul of this extraordinary kitty…and to his very special mom.

Timmy left this world at 10:00 p.m. on February 16, 2009. There was no warning. He was not sick, nothing had happened that day. He just left. Kathy says that is how Timmy would have wanted it – no pain, no suffering, no long goodbyes.

She is also sure he may be rather ticked off over there on the other side, having had his life ended so abruptly! If Cool, CA is hit with an unexpected thunder storm it may be Timmy’s “cattitude” letting everyone know how he feels about the situation.

A light has gone out for me with the loss of Timmy. However, the heavens have gained one VERY BRILLIANT STAR.

You were one of a kind, Timmy…and I will miss you terribly.

Love from your
Auntie Chris

Dear Chris,
Timmy would have loved your special words about him and me. He will never be forgotten. I am so glad you are a part of my life. You have helped me during this past week.

Timmy's Mom, Kathy
