October 12, 1994 ~ April 26, 2010
Mondays are always awful, but this particular Monday, April 26th, 2010 was the worst Monday imaginable. This was the day I lost my Zigmund. For 16 years, this kitty has been by my side. Through 9 moves, this kitty has made my house a home. Forever, this kitty will be in my heart, and keep a piece of my soul.
Zigmund had many names: Ziggs, Ziggy, Ziggers, Zigamundo, Mundo, Noodle Nuts, Munchie, Chia, Chi Chi, Chia pet, and most fitting today, Orange Angel. I have to believe he is an angel now – that I’ll see him again – that he knows he was and continues to be loved and cherished. I have to believe I will cradle his healthy body in my arms, feel his rough tongue on the tip of my nose, smell his fishy breath, feel the soft rumble of his purr, once again. I have to believe he will wait for me, at the Rainbow Bridge.
I love you Zigmund. I always have. I always will. Wait for me.
