Goodbye to My Gorgeous Girl- Jasmine

My first girl, my sweet little Jasmine has passed over to the Rainbow Bridge this morning.  She lived a long life (16 years) and was rescued from the Animal Shelter after someone had dropped her off on the side of the road.  She weighed 4 lbs. and was skin and bones and didn't trust anyone.  She never became a lap cat but she did enjoy snuggling at the end of my bed and purred happily.  This is actually the first cat I have lost in my life because I didn't get my first cat until I was 12 years old. 
I have to tell you the worst story about "Miss Min" because she had a bit of an improper peeing problem.  The worst instance of this was when I went to take my SAT early one Saturday morning and I was standing in the lobby of my high school when I noticed a distinct odor......cat urine.  She had peed on my coat and I hadn't noticed until then so it had soaked through my sweatshirt too.  I spent the entire SAT smelling that horrible smell (and everyone else around me too). 

She wasn't perfect, but she was beautiful and I loved her.  She was the first of my girl animals and for that she will always be remembered because the girls are truly my loves (Kaze, Snap, etc.).  I will miss you Jasmine, I wish I could have been with you at the end- I would have kissed you as you drifted away.

Aw, man...she was very pretty! I'm really sorry she's gone now...kinda grinning, just a little bit, that she peed on your stuff and you didn't notice. That's my kinda kitty.

Sending you lots of hugs friend and please share a hugs with your mum from me too. Losing furry family members is awful to go through, but Miss Min was so blessed to have had a great life with very awesome (patient) people. I'm sure she knew how much you loved her. After all, not everyone would still love a cat that peed all over their clothes and made them smelly for a day.

Farewell, Jasmine. You led the way for all the other great cats who followed. My mommie got her first cat when she was 12 too, but he died before his time when mommie was in college. Jasmine was fortunate to have a long and prosperous life.

Mommie remembers the SAT story about Jasmine. It's a great story, and one that ensures you will always remember her.

Purrs and hugs,
~Emerson and Mommie
