Siri was my black and white tuxedo cat I found in a dumpster in November of 1994. I was living in an apartment and I heard these horrible animal screams coming from the trash outside my window. It was late at night and bitterly cold - unusual weather for Delaware it was 11 degrees (F). I picked her up out of the dumpster and carried her to my apartment where I warmed her, ran out & got her some cat food and let her sleep in my antique rocking chair. I noticed she was spayed and declawed and thought for sure someone was missing their beloved cat. For the next two weeks, I tried in earnest to find her owners. I got no calls except from a woman who wanted the cat as Christmas gift to her 6 year old! I thought that would be unfair to a cat that had already gone through so much. It didn't matter, I was already attached. I decided to keep her despite the fact that I did not really want a pet. She was a lovely cat that acted more like a dog than anything and she would even obey a few dog commands! She even despised other cats.
Siri, I will miss our walks when you tagged along and followed me as I walked the dogs. You walked the gutters and went into the grass when a car came near. You were smart. You knew to avoid cars, yet when your Grammie came to visit you would hop into hers and sit in her lap and wait for me to put you in the house. You would keep Grammie company.
Siri liked her local adventures of hunting and sleeping in the sun. I knew she was aging and that her kidneys were failing but I allowed her to go sleep on the porch. She ran out the front door 4 days ago and I could not find her to let her in at night. That was her usual routine. I looked for her at the shelter, made phone calls and thought the worst. I thought she had been hit by a car. In fact, during her foray outside, her kidneys failed and she crawled back home early this afternoon. She allowed me to say goodbye. I brought her to the ER vet and I said my last goodbyes. Siri, thank you for allowing me to let you go humanely and for giving me a sense of closure. I was so hurt when I did not know where you were. Now I know you are at peace, at the Rainbow Bridge. Be good girl! I love you and will miss you forever. Thank you for the 13 years you gave me and for your final gift. Rest In Peace.
***Thank You to her Memorial Sponsor*** God Bless!
