We lost our Nomie kitty on Thursday. It was sad and sudden. She fought. We fought. Our vets fought. Everyone fought to keep our tiny girl alive, but it was just too much for her.
Later on I'll write more about everything that happened when I feel up to it. Right now I'm just trying to focus on the good memories. Here are some of my favorite photos of my darling green-eyed girl.
She was the runt of a litter of kittens born in our garage on April 1, 2002. I held her just hours after she was born. She was the most curious of the litter, despite her size and we knew she would be the one we would keep. We named her Nomie after Nomar Garciaparra, who played for the Red Sox at the time. She was a tough little girl.
She loved to lay on my lap every day while I worked. I used to take her to our downtown office and let her run around the office and look out the big windows. She loved watching the cars from that vantage point. She was a hunter of lizards and could catch flies and moths that would make Mr. Miyagi proud. She even fought in an online kitten war, even though she didn't really do all that well.
She loved her sister Boo the most, despite her smelly bum. They slept together every night, and most of the day too. She loved her kitten tower and looking out the windows at the birds in the bird feeders. She really loved our new house.
We will miss you Nomie cat. There's an empty place in our hearts and our home that can't be replaced.
