Remembering Ruby: That Time When Ruby Shared the Top Ten Things About Herself


Some days, even almost two years later, I still miss my little girl so much, it feels like she just left me yesterday. I’m grateful I have eight years of Ruby’s Reflections on this site to comfort me and remind me of some of the cute things she did when the pain hits.

We don’t realize how quickly we can forget the small, everyday things after we lose a loved one. It’s one of the many reasons why I encourage people to journal after they lose a cat and write down as many memories as they can. Capturing memories while they’re fresh in our minds is a precious gift to ourselves.

Today’s memory goes back to September of 2011. Ruby had been with us for about six months, and she decided it was time to share a top 10 list about herself with her adoring fans.

    Ruby always laid everything in her cat life right out front for everyone to know what she was about,
    but she still held on to being somewhat shy. I miss you, Ruby!

    She was a special angel. She knew that & knew how very much she was loved ❤❤

    I kept diaries for many years when younger (and not nearly so distracted with Life.) Now I cherish reading them as they have little to do with my everyday life, and much to do about what my cats were up to.
