Tommy August 17, 2008 - March 27th, 2021

My dearest friend and sweetest love earned his wings on March 27th.

He was also known as Thomas, Thomasezs, Thomasehasis, Tommytoe, Tomatio, TomTom, Mama’s Tomma, Handsome man, My Sweet Baboo and My Baby Love Man. He lost his fight with CKD, but fought it every day like the true warrior that he was. I am lost. I am devastated and not sure how to live without him.

He was the most wonderful boy and my constant companion for his 12 and a half years. He was a foster uncle to many cats and kittens over the years. He even taught many how to “cat”. He graced us every day with his gentle yet stern cattitude, beautiful spirit and stunning good looks. He was an avid hunter of toy mice, laser light beams and the most dangerous predator to all humans, paper towels on the roll. There were many times I would walk into a room to learn a battle of the ages took place and he was victorious in his valiant effort to save his people from the scourge of the paper towel. He enjoyed “cat fishing” (toy on the end of a fishing pole), holding hands with his Mom, being treated like the king he was and receiving gentle kisses on each eye followed by his forehead while being told, “I kiss you because I love you”.

I will miss my sweet baby each and every day until we meet again. Rest peacefully my sweet, beautiful boy, and know that Mommy and the rest of your family love you always and forever and know you are with us now in spirit and free of pain and free of sickness. Tommy leaves behind his feline brothers and sisters; Josh, (who could never bare to be apart from him for more than a few minutes), Lester, Dustin, Jean and Fuzzy. He also leaves behind his grieving people; Mommy, Gabby, Zach and Becca.

He was never "just a cat"

He was my love, my child

He was a beautiful soul

He was always there for me

He was my fierce guardian and my gentle confidante

He loved me when no one else could or would

Often he was my reason to wake up in the morning when my soul was crushed

He was happily by my side without question, without conditions, without lies or deceit

He accepted me and demonstrated boundless love

He helped me to pick up all my shattered pieces when I hurt

He brought me so much laughter and joy

He was a precious being that I was always been thankful for, and always will be

He had been my true and faithful companion for all of his years

I can never repay him for what he’s given me, I did my best to let him know just how much he was loved

I hope he knew

He will be missed beyond measure.
