World Pet Memorial Day

There are conflicting dates for World Pet Memorial Day, but the  American Veterinary Medical Association says  it is always the second Sunday in June, which would make it fall today, June 11th. Today I am honoring my Bobo. I have honored Angel Bobo EVERY day since he passed in 2007, in my thoughts and heart, and through collages I have made and that are hanging in our home, but today I will formally recognize him. I deeply apologize about the awful photo quality, but all of my photos of Bobo were taken in the days before I blogged. It's the thought that counts, right?




Please take a moment and acknowledge and say a prayer for all of the cats and kittens who are in shelters and pray that they find furever homes.

I also send healing prayers to the kitties that are ill, or are facing challenges, and to all of you who have loved and lost your beloved furbabies. I also am sending prayers  to the countless nameless cats that are "lost" every day. Sadly, many will never know the love that our furbabies were blessed to know.

    1. thank you so much! He was a major sweetie to me, but believe it or not, Cody is more affectionate with others than Bobo was. But with ME, Bobo was a true soul kitty xoxo

  4. I didn't realize today was Pet Memorial Day either....but of course I carry Sammy in my heart every minute of every day anyway. I think of him so often and know that his impact on my life is everlasting. Teddy is a real joy but Sammy was my heart-child. I know you feel that way about Bobo too..........somehow life does go on though doesn't it.........sending you big hugs.

    Love, Pam

  22. We remember our OTRB loved ones every day too. We have a wall filled with framed photos that go back to my Mom's first kitty. We even have photos of a cockatiel, a raccoon and a robin that touched our lives. Sending paw hugs on your sweet Bobo. May his memory always comfort your heart.

  24. I think about my "angels" every day. It is as if they follow me through my life now. I bet Bobo is around you too and that you feel his presence. Wouldn't it be nice if our kitties could live as long as we do ?

    the critters in the cottage xo

  27. Sweet Bobo had such a loving home. It's wonderful that he's still in your thoughts every day. We have some angels to think of as well and 7 cats living with us. 4 of them are kittens who were left in front of our home 8 weeks ago. There are so many cats and kittens who get abandoned. It's so sad.

  28. Bobo sounds like he was such a special kitty. Sending hugs to you and Angel Bobo!

  29. I lost my Kitty the same year. It was a bad, BAD year (divorce and moving twice too) ... with the exception of adopting Bear. I regret that I don't have many good pictures of Kitty. Over the last year of her life, I got a few in digital format and I treasure those so deeply. Angel Bobo was a special boy - I read your post from the 6 year anniversary as I was looking to learn more about him - and I love your story about "Tears in Heaven." It's so unfair that we get left behind ... that we have to find a way to live without their light in our every day. That for the rest of our lifetimes, all we have a memories (as beautiful as they are).

    1. Oh I am sooo sooo sorry (((hugs))) divorce and losing your kitty....beyond heartbreaking (and moving too). I had lost my job approx 3 months before Bobo passed. In hindsight, it turned out to be a good thing because I was able to be with him during his final months. Thanks sooo much for caring about my boy and I am sooo sooo sorry about "Kitty" Sending you much love and (((hugs))))
