OBITUARY FOR WEENA

This is 'Weena' ...she teleports herself!

This is ‘Weena’ …she teleports herself!

On Monday, August 24, 2015, about 2 o’clock p. m. CST, mine and my daughter’s little Tabby cat, Rowena “Weena”, passed away. She lived a long, happy life of seventeen and a half years.

Oh, baby girl, I love you so much…how can I ever say good-bye. I can’t…it hurts so bad…I hate this…

Weena was born near Austin, Tx. in the springtime. She was carried across the overflowing Pedernales River, along with her sister, Gretchen, to be given to my daughter. Rowena was a feisty little kitty, earning her the nickname “Brave Little Toaster”.

Later, Rowena, Gretchen, and my daughter came to live with me. Her bravery continued, keeping the other resident critters in line…those being two dogs, another cat, and even her own sister. She was the boss, and was in charge of them all whenever we were out of the house. She took her job seriously.

Oh, sweet baby, we had so many fun times…you’re such a good girl…I’m going to miss you so much…I love you…

Weena loved to sit on laps, her daily brushing, and jumping up on the ironing board, for more brushing and treats. Her favorite fun times included chattering at the falling, swirling leaves in Autumn, and she was ever vigilant in catching moths.

Oh, sweet Weena…I knew the end was growing near, when I brought you a big, yellow leaf, and you only sniffed it…not enough energy to give chase…my heart is breaking…

Rowena’s claim to fame, in this house, was when she’d disappear. We always said she’d teleported herself to another dimension. She’d absolutely be missing for hours, then mysteriously re-appear in the last place we’d seen her…acting as if nothing had happened. She would have an all-knowing look in her eyes…she’d been somewhere, and seen things only she’d have the privilege of experiencing.

Oh, sweetie, where did you go when you left us…frantically searching for you? Were you visiting all my other pets who have crossed over…checking on them, playing with them? I know you have joined them now, to await my arrival in your new, peaceful world. I know I’ll see you all again someday…

I named my blogs after Weena. She was the inspiration for “teleportingweena”. The idea of teleportation, and time machines, like the book and movie, “The Time Machine” by H. G. Wells, and the girl in both, named Weena. I believe in the idea of time-travel, other dimensions, ghosts, and all mysterious realms, and I think Rowena did too…and now she knows the truth of it all.

On a soft, green blanket, on my bed, Weena took her last breaths, as I was petting her and telling her how much I loved her…and that we’d see each other again someday.

Oh, Weena…I’m trying to comfort you, and I’m crying so hard for you…and for myself because I’m going to miss you so much. I’m going to miss you at night, sleeping on my chest, brushing my face with your tickly whiskers, and gentle pats with your paws. I’ll miss the cute way you meowed when I asked you something, and you’d answer. I pray you’re not in pain…that you’re not afraid…that you know you are loved forevermore…forevermore…

Services are pending, with a small ceremony, and loving words. Rowena was cremated, and her cremains will be interred in the garden, next to her sister, Gretchen, who left us in January of 2015. Rowena’s kitty companions left to miss her, are Paolo, and Cricket.

  1. So sorry for your loss. Heart broken for you and the family. Love your blog, what a beautiful tribune to Weena. Am sure Paolo and Cricket will carry her legacy proudly. Hugs to you my friend.

  2. The last teleportation… It will be so hard not to expect her to turn up where you last left her, I am sure. We have a vigilant moth-catcher here, too. I am sorry for your loss. You must imagine wonderful adventures for her in the other realm. When you can.

    • Oh, yes…her last teleportation…I know, I keep expecting to see Weena in her usual places here in the house. I keep thinking…this time last week, she was doing this. Thank you for your kind words, Paula.

    • Thank you so much, Kezia Lee. I appreciate your kind words. I know we all go through losing a loved one, and we get through our sadness in the best way we can. Thank you xo
