2/14/2001 - 8/8/2015Nilla was a warm hearted cat with a big personality. Her playful behavior always had her family laughing and smiling. She had a beautiful black coat which included white angle boots, white gloves, a white spot on her lower belly, and a very clean tuxedo trail from her chin down to her chest. In addition, she had long, which white whiskers and eyebrows which made her even more beautiful. From the moment she entered our lives, she provided a light of happiness that would outshine any negativity that the day may have brought forth. Over time, her meows became more like our own language and her head nudges were her ways of showing love and appreciation. A lover of deep tissue back massages, Nilla appreciated the simpler things in life, such as lying down next to her family snuggled up while watching a movie, or simply sharing a seat on the balcony and admiring the high-rise view of Chicago's north side. Her spirit and the memories that she has left us will never be forgotten and no day shall pass in which those special moments with her will not be cherished.

I love you so much my little girl. Thank you for being our best friend, our family, and our rock. You better not be late when I come looking for you in front of the Rainbow Bridge!

Thank you so much for all of your kind words Ned! You have no idea how much it means to me to know that I helped make such a difficult time just a little easier for Nilla and your family. I absolutely love hearing more about her life and seeing these pictures of her. She really was so beautiful and always so fancy dressed up in that tuxedo of hers! She was so lucky to have a family that was so devoted to her in every way. It made me smile to read what you said about her not being late when you come looking for her at the Rainbow Bridge...I just know she will be ready and waiting for you, her best friend! Lots of hugs and love to your entire family.Christie Comm - August 12, 2015
