My Dearest Jojoe Passed Away On 30th Dec 2001.
I am a 35 year old mother from Malaysia. I love cats and have around them since my childhood. This is about my last beloved cat I owned.
It was just before Aidilfitri (a Muslim holiday after fasting in Ramadan for a month), I had to put Jojoe at my mum's house cause I will be travelling to my mother in-law's which was quite a distance and travelling with a cat is not possible. Further more I wanted to neuter Jojoe at the Vet back at mum's place.
Jojoe has undergone the neuter operations the last time I saw him. He was a bit skinny due to the operation. Did not eat much and my mum had to spoon feed him with milk. He was about eight month then.
Before my husband, my son and my self went off to my husband's home town I bid Jojoe goodbye kissed him. Later Jojoe called my husband by meowing as if bidding goodbye. Only my son did not bid him goodbye.
The holiday went ok, and after Christmas I went back to pick up mum to see my new home and get the last chance to see Jojoe. He was even thinner and looks very tired. We went off leaving Jojoe under my father's care. A few days later my mum went back and because I wanted to renovate my house I decided that Jojoe stays at my mum's house until the renovation is done.
Sadly, today, 30th Dec 2001, I got a call from mum, saying that Jojoe just suddenly passed away after the operation and an ear infection problem. I felt so guilty, sad and I cried my heart out. I was faraway from Jojoe, I instructed mum for the operations, I knew something is wrong with his ear therefore I felt I am guilty, so guilty I can't think. That's why I draft this sad story even during my swollen eyes after crying extensively to get it out with.
Flashing back, Jojoe was my mum's kitten, and I brought him to be our pet some 4 months ago when he was only 4 to 5 months old. He was grey in colour, beautiful long fur coat and tail. A very intelligent cat and playful. Love to attack cockroaches and moving feet. So cuddling and soft when held. Now, it was just a sweet memory for me for Jojoe is no longer with us.
I miss u so much Jojoe.....hope you and God forgive me for not taking care of you my dearest Jojoe......I love you so much. Forgive me.
