Goodbye our sweet little Ebi


Yesterday we said goodbye to our dear little Ebi.  She was a ray of sunshine in our lives.  A sweet, gentle soul.  She loved people, she loved playing, she loved sleeping under blankets and duvets, she loooooved purring, she loved her daddy and she really loved cheese.


She had one crooked whisker, was notoriously hard to photograph and loved standing with her two front paws on a desk, chair or table.


She never left her Papa's side.  He would pull up a chair for her when he was working at his desk and she would perk up the minute he opened the door when he came home.  It was in his loving arms that she passed away yesterday.

I keep expecting to see her beautiful face everytime I walk around a corner.  There aren't really the words to express how much we feel her loss.  She brought so much love and joy into our lives.


We miss you so much, Ebi.  We are so happy you came into our lives.

  1. I am so sorry for your loss, Debi! Losing a pet--especially a charismatic cat!--can sometimes hurt harder than losing a human friend or relative. :(

  10. So sorry to hear this :( We lost beloved pet a month ago and it was the fifth pet I have lost. It is always hard, they are family members as any human would be.  When we lost our previous cat we lasted only about a month without a new pet. They are such joy and sunshine in our lives. Rest in peace little Ebi, and hugs for you both!

    Debi, David, I'm so sorry to hear about Ebi. The four legged babies come into our lives and settle in and become one of us, apart of us. And when we must say good-bye it's heartbreaking. My heart goes out to both of you. I've had to say good-bye to one of my four legged babies and I still mourn for him.

    :::hugs and prayers:::

  76. How astonishingly lacking in self awareness you are. How egotistical, lacking in wit and humanity. What an utterly ghastly human being you appear to be. Well,as long as you think you're god's gift, nothing else matters does it?
    Glad I've never met you. I can't imagine being so bored that I would be force to listen to your inane drivel.

  77. I'm so sorry to hear about your Ebi!  We lost our own cat last week, so I understand where you are.  It's not easy, and words don't help - but try to cherish the memories of how much joy you brought to each other.  Our animals can truly become family, and saying goodbye is so hard.  Hugs to you!

  80. I'm so sorry to hear you've lost your bit of sunshine.  We lost our beautiful Old English Sheepdog, Moses, last month, so I understand how lonely and empty a house can be without our constant companions.  A big hug to you.
