Remembering Lita on Her Angelversary

 Today, September 12th, is Lita's angelversary. It's been five years since she ran off to the Rainbow Bridge. It is so strange that it's been this long already. 

I thought I'd share a few photos and favorite memories of Lita with you all today to celebrate her.


Pardon Lita's demon eyes in this photo. I took it with a very old camera. Those were the days...

I discovered how much Lita loved catnip early in her life. I brought her and Carmine home this little bag filled with catnip. Lita loved it so much, she tore a nice hole in it within hours of getting it. Thankfully her Yeowww! toys held up better against her teeth and claws.

Lita and Dave

Lita's favorite person actually wasn't me. It was our friend, Dave. She loved him so very much. She would spend hours up on his shoulder like this if he let her. I'm glad they got to spend a lot of years together during her lifetime. 

Lita did love me, too, just not as much as Dave. Lita gave the best hugs. I loved it when she'd lay on my shoulder like this. She was such a sweet girl.

Me, Lita, and Moo.

As many of you know, Lita wasn't overly thrilled when Carmine came to live with us. She didn't particularly care for Jewel when she came to live with us, either. But as she got older, I think Carmine grew on her. I think she found comfort in him as she'd always go lay by him if she felt crummy. 

I remember the time Lita was running from Carmine and tore Dave's eyelid (he was sleeping on the couch when Lita trampled over him). We actually had to go to the emergency room to get his eyelid glued back together.

Me and Lita

There are so many wonderful memories of Lita. She was a wonderful companion and friend. For the first year I lived in Colorado, it was just the two of us. It was great having a furry friend to come home to after a hard day at my internship. 

Lita was intelligent, chatty (to Dave), loving, sweet, bossy, opinionated, and affectionate. She may not have loved other cats, but she really loved her people. She slept with me nearly every night until she could no longer jump up onto the bed. 

I will always miss her. She was such a beautiful fuzzy. We love you, Lita! We will never, ever forget you.
