Timmy Tomcat Forever

My dear friends I am sorry to meow that I have had to leave you all. It was time to go back to heaven by climbing the stairs of the Rainbow Bridge to be reunited with all my dearly missed family & friends. It was a hard choice. Dad will miss me most but I was getting really tired and he said he understands. My family knew before I did as, being cats, they are tuned to the subtle whispers of the universe while I was listening more to my heart.
That is how it is when you are a Heart Kitty

Dear friends this has one of the hardest days of my life, saying goodbye to dear Timmy who was my true Heart Cat. This photo is one of the first I took of him and was from when he got his name. He came into our small space, sniffed around a little, leaned up on my leg and gave me the look that he did everyday we were together. He looked directly into my eyes and it was an instant connection. Like he was saying "Hey there fella, we are together, connected and will love and care for each other, forever." He had been called "Potter" but I said "Yes we will... Tomcat, Timmy Tomcat!" 
I will miss you so dear Timmy!


Timmy let me know we were connected best in his behavior. Besides playing and having fun he was always there. The welcoming cat morning, noon and night. A good, maybe the best, example is how he slept. At night, after treat time, which could be a bit exciting, he would settle near me with his big purr rumbling out. The family would all fall asleep but whenever I woke in the night I would hear that purr. I would reach out and he would rub his head on my hand all the while with his motor running. I could then drift off again feeling loved with my best friend by my side.
There is so much more I want to say and I will in time.
Timmy I know you are right there looking down with love with all our other dear Angels. It is sad that we did not have a longer time here but we made the most of it.

No goodbyes but just until we meet again dear friend!

We want to thank Ann of Zoolatry for the amazing badges. The larger ones are above and these are sidebar size. Timmy you welcomed me my dear brother and I will miss you

Timmy you were a friend from the day we met. Love you Brother

Oh Timmy it will be really hard at Cat Scouts but I know you will come in my dreams to direct this young cats paws

Timmy don't you worry about young Einstein. I will keep an eye on him and help him along. No matter what a jerk I was you always loved me and gave me a head bump. Love you ginger friend!

We are joining Comedy Plus for Feline Friday.

CCL Wendy said...

It’s so very sad. We just barely got to know Timmy. I’m sorry for your heartache. The bond will always be with you, and the memories of all the good times. I know you did your best for him once he let you know it was time. That in itself is an act of love. Our condolences to you and your family, both kitty and human.

What a beautiful little soul. Such a sweetie from the first time you met him. We’ll remember Timmy, too. He made such an impact.

Love to you all, Wendy and Dani😿

Oh, Dear Angel Timmy! You are such a shining new star in the realms of Kitty Heaven.
So sorry that you had to leave your earthly furmily, esp your Dad, Pete...but like you say, you were needing to be with your fellow furmily angels who had already traveled there...

Rest a while, Dear Timmy, and then fly healthy and with your new strong wings all over the pleasantness of the RB meadows.

Sending love and hugs to you, Dad Pete, and many wags and aroos from us pups, too.

(((((((((( ♥ ))))))))))

The news of Timmy’s loss is heartbreaking. Please know that I am thinking of you, and that there is boundless love and prayer being offered for you and family from here, too.
Your time with Timmy is an amazing gift—I know you realize that, and will always be grateful for the way he served such a high purpose in life, including helping you both to grow and learn and to expand and absorb your capacity to love.
You have so much to be proud of. Timmy’s life and yours were made better through your love of each other. Your writings showed us both yours and Timmy's many wonderful achievements, character, and sense of humor. In this time of sorrow I express my gratitude for the sheer joy of Timmy’s life. Know that am with you. One day at a time.

We are looking for Timmy as he comes across the rainbow bridge. Here we are Timmy! He nods, gives a meow and purrs and goes on to greet more fellow Angels.
Here on earth meowmies eyes are leaking, she is crying, knew this day was coming but it is hard, always hard, to see our loved ones go.
Sending our purrs, paw kisses and hugs.

John Bellen said...

Pete, I was terribly afraid that this day would be coming soon. Timmy’s passing affects me more than I can write. What a horrible day. But now he is whole and healthy, and will smile at the memories you and he and the family made together, until the two of you are reunited where there will be no more partings. Godspeed, Timmy, and God bless you, Pete.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Dad Pete I am so very sorry about the loss of your special boy Timmy. I know there are no words in our language that can help ease the sorrow that you are feeling. I can only say that this loss will stay with you forever wrapped up in your heart and you will carry it but it will grow lighter as more of the love starts to ease it's way back into the dark space that Grief now fills. Your sweet boy will be deeply missed by all of us and we share in your loss and in your Grief. Please continue to give us stories of your boy and it will keep his spirit alive and well with us all if that is what feels right to you. And although it is hard, think of him up ahead on his Journey, just around the bend, waiting patiently for you. Purrs and prayers and be gentle with yourself and patient. Thinking of you.

Katie Isabella said...

I am in tears. I fell in love with Timmy years ago. I said so back then too. As time has passed, I still loved him. I know what a terrible time this is, and will be for awhile, with your heart broken and aching. Time will heal some of the hurt but your memory of him and your tears will still be there when you remember him.
Sending love... and hugs if I only could. As with many of us here, I completely understand.

Pam and Teddy said...

Sometimes I can't quite find the right words - but I too have had a heart cat pass away and know that even with all the love in the world from our other cats, there's a spot they just can't QUITE reach. Timmy is a permanent part of your life and heart of course but we SOOO miss their purr, their touch, their little face as those eyes look so deeply into ours sending love and trust. I hope in time the ache becomes not so painful but just a reminder of Timmy. He was so loved by everyone - his absence is felt across the blogosphere.

Love, Pam and Teddy

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

We are so sorry for your loss.

Even though Chimera didn't get to go to Scouts much she always enjoyed seeing Timmy there when she did. And all of us will miss seeing Timmy around blogville.

Loulou said...

Oh, no, oh, no. we are heartsick about Timmy and so sad, so sad but we will love him forever and remember him always. We are so sorry not to have written before now but just learned of this very distressing event. Remember lovely moments, but nothing that anyone can say or do will help...
Time. The great healer. But even that........

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Please know you aren't alone and you [and Timmy] are loved. I'm so sad - maybe because I recently lost Bear and the loss is so fresh on my mind. But also because Timmy is so easy to love and so unforgettable in every way. There was always some essence of him that tugged at my heart - maybe because I sensed your unique bond and saw his amazing heart in everything he did. Bear was my heart cat and so much more. I know words can't lessen your pain - but I'm always here to talk. No pressure - I understand not talking - I haven't really tried yet. Words just fail me completely - what can one really say to even scratch the surface of the devastation?!? At least know you aren't alone - if the words don't come. We care so much about all of you and you're in our thoughts and prayers. It's so not fair that you had to say goodbye to the Amazing Timmy - but he will never be forgotten and will live on in the hearts of those of us who got to know him here.

M Dawson said...

What can you say when the world falls apart and your heart seems to have gone. Timmy was special, his name stands proud at the top of the blog for a good reason, he was the BEST. Thanks to the selfies I remembered to visit once a week which is one heck of an achievement for me I can tell you but seeing you and the gang will still be a joy EVERY WEEK.

I always cry when they go. Even if they are not my cat, even if we never met. You need to know that other people will cry, and their hearts break, even if we know it's coming. Other people have spoken with more eloquence, just know losing Timmy has left a space in my heart.

Marjorie and Toulouse.

I'm here to pay my respects to Timmy Tomcat. *bows head* Oh Dad Pete, I' sending comforting purrz for you and the rest of the furry family.
Timmy, look up and say "hola" to TW's heart cat. Tell Nicky that she'll be joining him in the not so distant future but I hope it won't be for a long while.

meowmeowmans said...

Dad Pete, we are simply heartbroken. Your tribute to him here is beautiful, and so clearly shows the love that you and Timmy shared here on Earth.
