Jona- 2008 through 2017

Thursday, February 02, 2017

Jona was my daughter's Natalie's cat. Jona went to Kitty Heaven in January 2017 after my birthday. She chose to pass away in between my room and Nata's room to show us she loved us both. Natalie found her peaceful asleep in the morning prior to her work. We decided to bury Jona in the back area underneath Nat's bedroom window. We lay red bricks around her grave - put flower lights on the tree by her so she would have lights by her and a star at the head of her laying resting place.

Even writing this still brings me to tears. Jona had an issue wit her tummy and couldn't keep food down all the time but she was an active kitty. She would love to jump on top of the refrigerator which the other cats cannot do. She liked to watch us from high places. She would also like to hide in the linen closet and I had to make sure I didn't lock her in. She didn't like her tail touch - she would get very upset. When I would come home she would lay on my tummy and we would watch tv together. When I would go to sleep - she would sleep on the side of me.

We will miss her terribly - Kitty will also miss her terribly - she is with Jona in the last picture. Cookie, Sparkie and Kitty - have been looking for Jona and so hard to tell them she's not there. I also lay out a place in the food area for Jona along with the other cats.

    So sorry to hear you and your daughter are dealing with the loss of Jona. She surely was a beautiful kitty from her picture. It sounds like she had a wonderful life living with you, a good home for a kitty with a stomach problem. She will always be in your heart and she is close to you.

    Awwww, so sorry that your beloved, furry friend passed away. She was so beautiful and sounds like she was a perfect pet too. I know exactly how tough it is when one passes away. They become almost like family to us. I'll be thinking of you with love and care. emoticon
