Beau Beau Your Light will Live Forever in our Hearts


RIP Beau Beau.  You gave your humans more love and joy than you could ever imagine.  You were brought into our lives when we needed you most and our life was forever changed for the better.  You taught your human Mommy unconditional love, faith and trust in the universe, kept her on her toes, and helped her find a way for creative expression through this blog and photography.  You were Daddy's 5AM or sometimes 4AM alarm clock.  You gave  him a way to show his love of routine and comfort and caregiving through feeding you and taking care of you like the wonderful father that he is.  You were here for our wedding and brought our family together.  You watched watched your human sister go from HS to College girl to worker girl.  You brought us all love.  We will miss you terribly.  And now because of our loving memories and this blog we can go back and look look at the funny, crazy, loving journey you enjoyed during your life with us.  In my heart I know I will see you again when we all cross the rainbow bridge. 

Here's how it started.  "I was a Mommy's boy and a Daddy's boy too.  Daddy is the one who picked me out at the Meriden CT Humane Society. I was only six-months old. When the humans came into the room that my cage was in, Daddy looked at me and gasped! He said he loved the way I looked. They got me out of my cage and held me and I just sat in their arms nice and quiet like. That seemed to be the charm and they took me to my forever home that day."


 Baby Beau Beau.  Look how big his ears are compared to his body.  


 Loving his Sisfur, Angie

Our morning routine was for me to walk him to the kitchen with him over my shoulder.  

Enjoying his time with his Daddy.

Some of our favorite expressions and moments with Beau Beau:



 His favorite position - laying over something with his arms hanging down

 Scary dance.


 Leaping for fevvers.  



 Beau Beau's house and attention outside watching the birds.


His - ayyyyy ow you doin' look




His best "Monty Q"




A very recent photo - resting in the computer desk cubby hole - watching me work.


A few Christmases ago and one of the few times he ever let us put anything on him.


Your light will be forever remembered in our hearts.  We love you Beau Beau.

We're so, so sorry Beau Beau had to leave for the Bridge. We know there aren't any words of comfort that will help right now. All we can do is send purrs and hugs and Light. We wish you peace on the other side of your grief journey.

Godspeed, Beau Beau.

We were so saddened to learn of Beau Beau's leaving when Max posted what he'd read on FB. I suppose the only thing that can give us some comfort is that he's with Angie again, just like the old days. Our hearts are with you in this very sad time.

Adios, Beau Beau. We'll meet up again.

Helen said...

(((hugs))) We are so very, very sorry. We loved that beautiful boy from afar...

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

I have such wonderful memories of Beau Beau and such warmth in my heart. Abby always had a crush on him you know? Both he and Angie were old friends.It's hard losing such a sweet one. Always hard. I know that the love will always remain and those memories will be extraordinary special. I found great comfort in having so many special moments suspended in time on the blog. I was so glad, in time, that I had that to go back to and remembered Abby and Gracie. I found that I could print the blog out in book form and I have done the entire period of Abby's life. I only say that because for myself it was a godsend to be able to have it in a permanent form and I wanted you to know you can too if that is something that appeals to you. I am so sorry, so so sorry. Those of us who knew Beau Beau so well share deeply in your loss. He is waiting for you. So this is just a temporary separation. I found that for myself when I moved to the thought that I was walking towards Abby as each day passed the easier it was for me to know how happy I would be to see her again. My deepest prayers. ((hugs))

Oh we're so very sorry you've lost your absolutely gorgeous Beau Beau....what a darling boy he was - that look on his face - he was quite a little character wasn't he. We know how very tough it is to lose a beloved kitty ANY time of the year but somehow holiday time is the worst........we're happy he was in such a loving home for the time he was here. We know how to find just the RIGHT forever home no matter how long our "forever" might be.

Love and hugs,
Sammy and his Mom Pam
