Loki
7/15/2004 - 10/30/2019Loki left this indelible mark on my heart and his loss has left a wound as equally profound. He is everywhere and nowhere. What was once tangible and solid is now a fading shadow and an empty echo in this house. My heart aches at his absence. I will miss the way he followed me around and found my lap in whatever room I was sitting in. I will miss the way he loved to sleep on the back of my thighs or the way he would lay on my upper back with his paws over my shoulder. I will miss the weight of his front paws on my sternum before he’d lay down on my chest as I would drift off to sleep. I will miss the way he snored and the way he batted at my face when he wanted me to wake up to feed him, or when he batted at my hand when he wanted some of my food. I will miss the way he let me bury my face in his belly or the way he let me hold and carry him around the house kissing him and calling him my baby. I will miss the way he loved to sunbathe, sit on the register during the winter, or crawl under my parents comforter when he was cold. I could go on for many more paragraphs describing all the ways I will miss him. He was special. A once in a lifetime kind of companion. He was my family, my baby boy. He brought me 15 years of so much happiness and joy, filled with memories that I will never forget.

In memory of my sweet, beautiful Loki, you had the most gentle and loving soul. You were the most perfect surprise of my life. Finding you and loving you was meant to be; a gift I will always cherish. Be at peace my little kitty, I love you forever.

Loki was the most chill, laid-back, and appreciative cat on the planet. He literally found his home on Ebenezer Road (albeit hiding), and made it his sanctuary for the rest of his long, fulfilled life. I think I speak for the whole family when I say that we are so grateful that he stumbled upon our driveway, and ultimately, that he inserted himself into our lives, our house, and our hearts. He was a great cat, and my heart breaks for my sister, as their bond was and is like no other. Loki is gone in a physical sense, but the memory of him will live on with us forever. The memories of him are countless, but here are just a few of them that I have: His sock transportation fetish, his compassionate, skin-breaking claw stabbings while sitting on your lap, his love for butt pats and sun bathing, how cute he looked with his eyes closed, and his signature, "MUUUROOOWWW!" when Adriane wasn't home.

Loki will definitely be missed, but never be forgotten.

I love you Loki, Lok, Lokster, Loki Poki. May you forever rest in peace buddy.

I fell for Loki when he dozed off in my lap as a kitten and always enjoyed hanging out with him when we were watching movies. He was a special boy and I will miss seeing him and indulging him with cuddles.Alistair Kraft - November 3, 2019
Rest in Peace, sweet Loki. You were a faithful friend and a loving companion. The house is a little emptier without your presence. We love you and you will be missed.Debbie Zonker - November 3, 2019
