A final note from HRH




Heya Hepcats and Killer LadyCats out there!  Pour yourself a strong one and pull up a beddy next to me... I gots somethin to tell ya.



Alla the time I have thought about how I would write this post and now it's here and I just gotta 'cat up' and do it. You can't imagine how difficult it is knowing how much each of alla y'all means to me (and That Woman) and how, paws down, tails up; you are all just the best furiends a crazy ol' bat like me could ever have.  (Raises her Niptini in salute)

(ya; mine's extra dirty!)

So here's my news: it's time for me to move on to my next adventure.


(damn I was cute!)

I came here to That Woman and The Gurl like 8 or maybe even 9 lives ago and I been here; watchin over 'em since that day, 19 years ago now.  I been thru times with the 'Little Gurl', when she thought baby ducks were better 'n cats and she found out when they grew up into BIG ducks that they really were vicious toe biters (merciless to wee little pedicured tender toes stickin out them jellie shoes)!   

 And we played lots o' games together, and when I say 'we' I really mean
 
 Then when she thought chickens might be better than cats! While they was kinda all right n'all given I got all the rats I could catch  *looks wistful into the middle distance* OOOohhh kitties; them were the days:  I remember when I could leap from sitting still; 7 feet straight up in the air after the menacing hummer birds! The Little Gurl would squeal in laughter!  Aaahhhh. (sips her niptini demurely) And even when later she found boys... but I was always there, even when the boys were brats and made her cry, I'd turn on the motor and give her purrs to sleep. 


That Woman said I would only allow The Gurl to do this to me!


Back then I would occasionally take mini vacations and be gone for a few days, but I always came home again, right as rain.  The Mini Gurl would be playing with her friends or going to Brownies or doin her growin up stuff and then finally it was really just me & That Woman.  


See, we wasn't all that close those early years.  She was still broken over her losin her GinGin , her heart cat that came before me.  And I'm not really the lap sittin, cuddly type meself (you couldn't guess that right?) so we sorta kept our distance.  She was all busy with her job and bein a mom and bein the Brownie leader and room mom and well, a cat could see there wasn't really room in her heart yet so I just waitedpatiently.  


Then she went thru a sorta dark time; you know kitties, like some humans get all sad alla time and nothing really makes it right.  During that time, she would sit out on the back porch swing and cry. Oh she was all quiet about it so The Gurl didn't know, but anykitty could see.  So one time, late in the evening she was out there I sidled up next to her and curled up right next to her. She was all kinda startled at first but then she pet me, and I didn't run off, I just stretched my toes and turned on my purr real loud. After that, anytime she was out there I'd be there too; purrin right along. Oh I know she got help from a doctor too but kitties, we ALL know it was really my purrs that helped her find her way again, and we been besties ever since. 




Oh kitties! The kitties I've seen!  I been here through lots o' cats.  Foster cats, adopted cats; visiting cats; babysitting Bengal cats! (they is pretty exciting) and even wee kittentots. Sadly, we've lost cats too and every time she'd swear "no more indoor/outdoor kitties!"  But ya know, I ain't no housecat and I would pester her for months until she would relent and let us out with her in the backyard again.





Course now we iz all old and don't wander off anyhow  *Sigh*  I thought I lost her again back there to the great sadness when we lost Coco but she rallied after a year we got the Ornj mutant.  Even though he's a stinky boy; he's really special ta her on accounta he lays all still when she's holdin him. Sometimes it's for a really long time and I can see she'd been cryin too but he just lets her get all soppy all over his bright Ornj furs and he don't even care. I think he loves her.  He's quite the gentlemanly mancat. I'll give him credit for that. 





It's been a hell of a ride and anycat couldn't have asked for a better run!  Giant backyard trees to climb (and ambush birds-and scrappie) lizards, rats,
RATBUTT!

mice, bugs, and inside all the peoples!  No one was ever mean, they all pet me if I was around and gave my straight up tail a gentle tug now and again. (I loves that) And there was treats!  Holy Cod kitties was there treats! And Blog Paws buddies

and Secret Paws Christmas'




and love letters from my 'special mancat-SS'


and toys and CatNip Quilts!
 

I truly love testin them out and makin sure they are all filled with lovely scents and some of my furrs too! I have loved seeing all they happy kitties who have ordered them and all the other happy kitties who one auctions!  It means a lot to me that That Woman has copyrighted my name for all time!  So now even though I'm not here they is still "Ms. Stella O'Houligan's Premium CatNip Quilts!" Who'd a thought an irascible ol ladycat like me would have a legacy? Whoohoo!  



But even this smokin fun ride's gotta end.  I'm down to just fur and bones and grit!  While I'm still enjoying sun puddles I can't hear stuff anymore.  
(can you hear meow?)

When I gets up my 'get up and go' takes a bit to catch up. And ya know, these old bones and teefs is just givin me grief.  I done my best to hide it all from That Woman but damned if she can't just see right thru me! So we been havin talks and I been tellin' her little by little that I think it's time. 
By the time y'all read this I'll have moved on, back to stardust, just like we all is.  And that is such a comforting thought. When ya look up tonight at the stars; I'll be there!  Tail swishin, butt wigglin, ready to pounce and romp with all them other stars up there, like The Admiral and Sparkle and Squashies and Skeezix! There's so many I'd need 10 other blogposts to name 'em all!   *raises Niptini*

SO HERE'S TO US!

The ones that come before who live in starlight, the ones still here feeling the sun on their furs; and as for me? 

Second star to the right, and straight on till morning.  

 
xoxo

  5. Oh Ms. Stella, only a Cat as Classy as Yourself would choose to go on her next Big Journey with such style and panache.

    While our Mommy sheds tears for you, we'll be busy looking for that (YOUR) new start in the firmament tonight; it will be the brightest one, we're sure of that.

    We'll miss you in body only. Your Spirit will always move within us.

  11. Oh, Ms. Stella, you're the classiest of the classy ladycats, to go out with such style. Pierre promises that once the head peep stops crying and it's safe to leave her lap, he's going to go look out the window into the night sky and find you, sparkling brightly. Many purrs and much love to you and especially to your human right now, <3

  12. Ms. Stella, The Human and I are verreh sad right now, as is only your due, my Good Ladycat. We are shedding some tears up here in the City by the Bay, and we're keeping our eyes on the firmament to see your Stellar star come streaking past. You are the Best, Ms. Stella, and we will miss you gurgling and chirruping across the miles--or, wait--maybe I will still be able to hear them across what is, after all, only a few additional miles now.

    But through our sadness we also feel gratitude to your Mom (and the Gurl too) for being such a GREAT life companion to you, and for preparing us a little for this day. We don't think the sadness will ever outweigh the joy of knowing you, and the fun of all our delightful letters, and the lovely scent you left on my quilts. I love you, Ms. Stella and I am so glad you and your Mom know that.

    We know your Mom will be sad for a time, missing you, but also glad that you are free now. The Ornj Menace and the others will have to step up and comfort her through these hard days. Send her some purrs from the Bridge, y'hear? And then look up Booboo and Mr. Teeth and Clarkie. They're a fun bunch--you can have a LOT of fun being Cranky with Booboo--she was a feisty nineteen-year-old when she made her journey, too.

    Till we meet again, my sweet, sweet girl!

  13. It was a beautiful post Stella, but we still be missing you bunches! Don't worry we'll be keepin a close eye on that wiley Mom of yours, too.
    Now if you'll just excuse us, our Mommy needs to leak a little, too.
    Sending lots of love, nosebumpies, and kitteh >>kisses<< to you all.

  14. We're looking up at the stars and sure we see you with our Finny. We loved reading about all your exploits. We send our love and purrs to That Woman and The Gurl who must be missing you already. Hope the other kitties can give them some extra love. We'll watch the stars and think of you till we all meet again - you're a star.

  15. Stella, that was just the most awesome outro and I tip my paw to you. And I am purring lots for TW. I'm at the OC Pet Expo this weekend doing a cat show and if she wants to drop by, I will try to purr in person for her too, and my human will give her a big hug. But if it hurts too much for her to be around all these kitties, I will purr for her all the harder.

  16. Ms. Stella, we are privileged to have met you, even tho it was only a short time ago. We is sending our heartfelt purrs for your beans as we know they must be hurting even tho you told them it was time to go.

  20. Ms Stellie, Mom and I are deeply saddened at you having gone away from all of us. We know we will join you and hear you again by and by, but not hearing you now really hurts so much. You have always been Admiral's and my hero and you will not ever lose that status with us. Always and ever our love to you dear girl. There are many of your dear furriends who greeted you I know and if I know Admiral, she elbowed all the others out of her way to get to you. Hugs and understanding to your mom and the gurl. They will be missing you so much and their hearts are hurting but we will be there for them, purring our loudest. XXOOXX

  21. Miss Stella, right to the end you have had chutzpah and class. Me and mum are totally in tears here.

I will look for your star every night in the sky and salute you xoxoxox

I just has to give you my Mario SMOOCH. You were one special ladycat. What a ride you have had girl - now it's time to slow down and take long naps on that star of yours. Mary here: my heart is breaking for you, the human, as we know how special Miss Stella was to you. Miss Stella was special to you, and certainly you were special to Miss Stella. She will live in all our hearts forever. I'm sending big HUGS to you, her family, and we will miss her too.

  41. Ms. Stella, this post was a shock to us, because we haven't stopped done much blogging in a quite a while. Our eyes are leaky reading these words -- we're deeply saddened that you've now passed from this world. Our human went through Very Bad Times before we came, and angel Annie, while never a lap cat, always came to her side to comfort her and stay with her. So our human is so deeply sorry for your passing, for the hole it leaves in your own human's heart. We wish we had words of comfort, but of course there are none. Be at peace, and may your human find her own peace at the end of her journey through grief. Purrs and hugs.

  47. Miss Stella, you have made my "that woman" go all slobbery sobbing. She loved you and your talks with That Woman; even met her in Las Vegas. We helped out with some green papers when you had you toe surgery and we still laugh when we reread the post with you yellin' at That Woman for not demanding the vet NOT USE PINK bandages.You could have been a stand up comicat for sure. *raises niptini in salute* Here's to you Miss Stella; be seein' you in the stars.

  48. Ms. Stella, we'll be looking at the sky tonight, blowing kisses into the starlight. So glad you had a good life while you were here, full of nip and crawlies to pounce on. I know we had a good furriend we'll always remember. Sending hugs and kisses to your family.

  50. Stella the Dad and we Man Cats along with Miss Fitz are wet eyed at the beauty of your life. You have reached out to touch so many even as you kept your own self dignified and a bit tough as, after all, is not the best way to truly give. May you fly free and run with young paws in joy in that place of fun in the sun and just purrfect spots to nap after a nice chase of a rat or such. Watch over us until that day we all meet again.
    Love Purrs and Prayers
