Bailey Aka Mr. Kitty
10/15/2004 - 1/15/2021Bailey,

You brought so much joy to so many lives. You were the absolute most sweetest good boy I could've possibly asked for. You saved me at a difficult time in my life (actually more than one) through our many years together. Your nudges and purrs always made me smile and feel better no matter what was going on. I so miss the happy feeling in my chest when I walked in the door knowing you'd be there to say hello. Your deliberate flops for belly rubs were the best, including your snagging my shoes when I tried to get up and walk away. I miss you coming next to my office chair and burying your claws in the arm rest just asking "can I get in your lap dad?" I'd give anything to have you back. I knew this wouldn't be easy, but I never imagined it would be this hard. Precious misses you too. Today she lay in your bed with the saddest expression. I will give her all the love I can in your absence.

Lily loved you so much too as I know you loved her as well. The endless days of you jumping in her lap to snooze on the futon will always be happy memories. You graciously endured her "torment" as a toddler and showed her nothing but patience and kindness. You will forever have a a place in both of our hearts and so many others. We all look forward to the day we will see you again. Renewed with vigor, strength and broken from the bonds of the horrible disease that took you from us. We are beyond grateful for the 16+ years we had with you. I promise you will never be forgotten. I miss you so much sweet boy. Until we meet again....

I cannot imagine a luckier cat. I think you were both blessed to have each other.Georgeanne Croskey - January 18, 2021
