Pepe was only seven years and two months when he died. He was a Persian
mix with beautiful bright blue crossed eyes and red flame tint ears, nose
and tail. He had intestinal cancer and passed away on July 18, 2002.
He was only three months old when we got him, and introduced him to our
already one year old cat, Pumpkin. They became friends and enjoyed each
Pepe always lean up against an object, while crossing his
front paws….we always said he looked like a Prince. We named him Pepe, like
the cartoon skunk Pepe Le Pew, because he would always shake his tail like a
skink as if her was going to spray. It was his funny little mannerism.
also loved to play with balls and little toy mice, and would retrieve them
like a dog. He would always sit in the clothesbasket and fall asleep. The
funniest thing he did was play with my husband's legs….he would play bit and
attack them--nicely. He was such a great cat, with a darling personality.
But mostly, Pepe loved the backyard. He loved lying by our flowerpots and
statues. He always loved his afternoon catnaps. He had his favorite
bush-that was like a cave that he started sleeping in. He always looked so
peaceful there. That is where he was the happiest, in that spot. He was
always there for us and I feel we were always there for him.
This past March, Pepe was not feeling well and we brought him to the vet.
That is where it all started. We thought he had gotten better, but then some
time went by and then it came back and was worse. We tried medication, had
some good days, but most were bad. His system started shutting down and the
last few days, he was suffering….We had to let go, but it was the hardest
decision of our lives. We will forever love you, Pepe. We miss you so much.
Things just aren't the same without you. You brought sunshine to our
lives….and you always will. We are so sorry you got cancer. We tried
everything to save you--you know we did. We did not want to see you suffer
any more. Life is not fair. You were too young. We know you are now at peace
and hopefully playing with other animals in Rainbow Bridge Heaven. You will
have no more pain, forever. We believe we will see you again…one day. We
will think of you everyday for the rest of our lives. You are the BEST
Our Love and Prayers Always,
