Y is for Yoda #AtoZChallenge

I know, I know... how predictable am I? Or should I say, Predictable, how I am?
Yoda is one of those characters that stands the test of time. Everybody loves him, everybody quotes him, everybody pretends to sound like him (don't they?!?). He's such a cool dude for such a weird character, don't you think?
But I love him for a different reason... I once named a cat after him. This cat was my baby. I hand-reared him when his mother wouldn't feed him anymore when he was just a week old. He was the runt of the litter. He followed me everywhere. I loved him to bits. When he died, I cried for days. He was only a few years old - my tiny little baby had barely made it into cat adulthood. Sadly, he picked up one of the worst cases of cat flu from the vet's and he just wasn't strong enough to survive. My heart broke... I still get choked up thinking about him now and it was a few years ago.
But I think about him a lot and I know I'll never forget him. I like to think he's up there waiting for my time to go so we can spend eternity together. Me and my little Yoda...

RIP little Yoda

  1. It is so hard to lose a pet. We lost one five years ago. Very sad. Also it's sad that I just found your blog today, when the A-Z is almost over. Better late than never. I am now your newest follower.
