Rascal Love Bug "Mufasa" Jones

My precious baby, Rascal, had been rescued by two good Samaritans: a son who found him lying in the road thinking he was dead and his mother who nursed him back to health. Rascal was the most lovable cat I have ever known. He was our Mufasa, beautiful in body and grand with a loving personality.

My Rascal, my bundle of loving fur, gave me more than I had ever expected. Even when I first picked him up and rested his sweet self in my arms, I knew he was a precious cat and very different from most.

I grew up loving pets dearly but never expected one to fulfill such a missing maternal instinct as my Rascal did. He would let me hold him in my arms cradled like a little baby and he was so gentle and sweet.

He came into my life when I needed to feel like a mommy. Not just a pet-mommy, but a real mommy. Rascal not only obliged but he ate it up. He took in all my kisses and sweet talk, and purred for more. He melted into my arms and my heart, making those longing days go by so much easier. He filled my heart with so much love and I miss him so.

A cuddly furball like Rascal had many special bonds with his family. Each and every day he shared his lovies with all of us. He adored sharing time cuddling, giving kitty kisses, and grooming his siblings to show his love. They were tender moments to cherish each time Rascal decided it was lovey time and someone needed his grooming to look their best. They became reflections of the love he gave and appreciation for the love he received.

His favorite pastime was hunting down lizards that managed to enter our home. Those creatures seemed to be in abundance around here. Rascal loved being at the door whenever it was opened. He seemed to make a game out of who would catch them first. It did not help matters that my pet name for my beloved sister had been Lizard and that the Geico commercials made them seem so cute and friendly. Every time the hunt was on, Rascal's eyes looked at me as if begging, "But it's not really a lizard Mommy, it's a gecko, so can I keep him?" Still he hunted as if he was finding my lizard for me and I was ever so grateful he never brought me a mouse!

Rascal's personal hero was Garfield. His personality matched him so well: easy going, no fuss, except when it came to his f-o-o-d. Since Rascal was so starved as a kitten, he inhaled his food like Garfield eating lasagna. Plus, he was a big cat... "All fur, Mommy!" And Whitters was his perfect Odie. Rascal was our pride and joy when it came to all his lovable qualities.

I will greatly miss our lovey dovey time together, and so does Daddy, too.

Heaven...where all the animals you ever loved will be waiting for you at the gate.
