Rufus
1/1/2001 - 9/29/2019Anyone who knew Rufus when he was younger knew that he had SO much spirit and energy that the lack of hearing never held him back. He had the dexterity to jump and simultaneously catch in his mouth and two front paws the string that turned my living room light on and off (!), he could open doors with his paws, and he’d literally jump about 8 feet straight off the ground and pull himself up so he could hang out on the tops of doors, and on top of the shower each morning to keep me company (occasionally sticking his head forward to get sprayed by the mist). I quickly saw that my little man could EAT – such an insatiable appetite for anything that I was having (he was the rudest mofo around when it came to food, swatting meat out of my hand!). He also could get into more trouble than any other critter—he once knocked off the door to a heating vent in between my bedroom and living room and climbed inside—and then when the heat came on, got caught inside my wall (!) and I had to smash the wall wide open with a sledgehammer to set him free.

But, there was truly no greater love around. I could always hold him upside down or in almost any position for as long as I wanted and all I’d get was deep-throated purrs and kisses. He was just happy to be loved and cuddled by me. Over the course of the nearly 19 years I have been with him, Rufus only became more soulful, more loving, and honestly the creature I have felt the closest, most spiritual bond with on this planet.

Saying goodbye yesterday was incredibly hard, but I am grateful for how peaceful it was doing it at home, and to have been gifted with having such an incredible companion for such a big part of my life.

Meow Meow
2/23/2002 - 10/17/2018Eulogy to Meow Meow, the best twice-refurbished cat in the world:

Our adventures started in 2007, after I picked Meow Meow up from a seller on Craigslist who advertised a fat “beautiful lap cat” for sale for $30. Meow Meow, who was named Mitsu at the time, had been dropped off at a shelter and then adopted by the Craigslist seller who changed her mind about wanting her.

In our eleven years together Meow Meow provided unconditional love, companionship, and patience when she became the focus of my varied, and sometimes disastrous, creative pursuits.

For starters, on numerous occasions, Meow Meow allowed me to performed various salon services on her despite being an unlicensed cosmetologist. Although she often ended up with jagged fur cuts and glittery manicures, she loved me all the same.

When I decided that Meow Meow should start dressing up as a rapper for Halloween, she acquiesced just long enough for a few photographs in her Notorious C.A.T., Mewpac Shakur, and Nicki Mewnaj costumes. Although she didn’t make it to Halloween this year, she made sure to dress up in her final—and perhaps best costume—just a little early as her beloved Emewnem.

Meow Meow also challenged me to expand my home improvement skills. After she started exhibiting typical cat ambivalence on staying in or out of any room, I bought a handsaw and installed a cat door in my rented apartment. The landlord was not happy, but Meow Meow sure was. (Unfettered ingress and egress!)

Meow Meow was also the muse (mews?) for much of my artwork. Although I depicted her as a criminal, an arsonist, and a vandalizer of fine art, and most recently, a movie ticket thief, she didn’t mind that I didn’t portray her in the most flattering light. I think she was just glad that this creative pursuit did not involve cutting her fur.

As a senior citizen, Meow Meow became a minor celebrity when a video of her tucking herself into bed went viral. She never let fame get to her head, and continued with her modest lifestyle of sleeping, peeing, and playing in boxes.

Although I’m heartbroken that my furry best friend is gone from this world, I have no doubt we will have more adventures in the next life time, filled with endless seaweed snacks, Mitchell’s Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp ice cream, and T-bone steak. I love you, Meow Meow, my little ghost kitty.

Bella
2/1/2010 - 10/1/2018My sweet girl Bella ❤️ She had lived some hard years in rural North Carolina before being brought north with City Dog Rescue in January of 2017. I agreed to foster her and the rest is history. My crazy, stubborn, lovable hound. She had some medical issues to deal with, and she powered through Heartworm and radiation treatment like a champ. She was doing so well and we all thought she had a few more good years ahead. Unfortunately the past few weeks proved us wrong, as she battled so many issues and we finally said enough. She loved being outside in the sunshine, so that is where we chose to say goodbye on a beautiful October morning. She was so loved and will be missed by so many in my neighborhood. Thank you to Dr. Beth and Lap of Love for being there - again- for us. Karen ElsburyAlexandria, VirginiaOctober 30, 2018
Remi
6/11/2011 - 9/19/2018Remi, our sweet loyal girl. Cancer took you from us too soon and our home and our hearts will never be the same. You brought us so much joy and happiness we are so grateful we got to have you in our lives, even if you were taken from us too soon. You will forever be our love and we know nothing will compare to the bond we all shared with you. You deserved to have the best life and we can only hope we provided that for you. You are so loved babygirl, we think about you everyday. You will forever be in our hearts, we love you unconditionally.Brittany MelendezFort Belvior, VirginiaSeptember 24, 2018
Bonita
9/26/2002 - 9/12/2018Baby girl,

I miss you very much. You were my sunshine girl. Everyday when I got home from work you brightened up my day. You always greeted me at the door and made your funny noises and jumped all over me. I am glad I adopted you and you were worth every penny I had to spend on you to keep you happy and healthy baby girl.

Summer
10/18/2005 - 8/6/2018Summer was the best, best friend ever. He helped me raise my children and filled each and every day with love, sticks, and extra fur. Every single minute with Summer was a blessing. We miss him terribly, but are so thankful for all the love and lessons we learned from him.Jean KomenderaFalls Church, VirginiaSeptember 2, 2018
