Rest in Peace my Beloved Medusa

Rest in Peace my Beloved Medusa

Last week my beloved cat-friend Medusa decided to move on to new adventures.

As the so very kind and gentle soul she was (and is) she saw to it that I wasn’t home when she transitioned.

I see it now in retrospect, because I was not suppose to go visit my family in Oslo, but went in a spur of a moment almost.

I came home the next day and found her dead on the living-room floor, she had had some kind of heart failure the vet thinks, and she told me that it can happened to cats all of a sudden, without any warnings or any particular reason.

It would have been very difficult for me to have been with Medusa when this happened and not been able to help her.

I truly feel that she sent me away so I didn’t have to go through it, and I’m touched by that, and grateful towards her.

In my heart I feel she chose to go (like I believe we all do when the time comes), and I sat by her body and prayed for her soul, feeling that she was home with God now.

Me and a friend buried her yesterday. We found a beutiful place in the woods near a lake – she loved being around water and looking out, enjoying life, as cats do so well.

My other cat was with us – I felt it was important for him to be a part of it since he is Medusas son.

Even though animals and pets don’t have the same needs to say goodbye or have a ritual of closure like we humans do.

Medusa got to be about 11 years old. The sweetest little cat, very proud, strong-willed, lady-like and sophisticated in her manners, and very spiritual.

I always felt she knew so much.

Her energy was so powerful and she knew exactly how to use it, I could feel miles away when she communicated with me with her energy. You just couldn’t ignore it, and she always got it her way 🙂

She is greatly missed. She will be with us forever in Spirit. 

Bless her soul <3

    My most heartfelt condolences on the loss of your furry baby. I had tears in my eyes as I read your tribute. We love them so much as if they are our own children and it is such a deeply felt loss when anything happens to take them from us. The very best we can know is that they knew always how very much they were loved .. and certainly they love us in return. I see it in the eyes of the kitty’s that share our lives .. and anyone who says differently hasn’t had the pleasure of a loving kitty’s affections. 🙂

    My very best wishes to you,

    Sherry 🙂

    They are just as loved as a human family member is, I totally agree.
    And they always have so much love to give back.

    I know she is with my other pet-friends who are with God too; I have had two dogs before - having a blast wherever they are 🙂

    It's a time of grief for me and my other cat, and adjustment to not having her around physically anymore. I get tears in my eyes just thinking about it.
    I remember how she chose me when we first met.
    I wasn't a "cat-person" at all at the time. I mean, sure, cats were cute and all that, but I didn't understand their language and I thought they were kind of arrogant. Plus, I was allergic to them!

    But this little blue-eyed cat kept coming to me, sitting in my lap and so on, to the point that the owners of Medusa (she was about a year, a year and a half when I met her) asked if I wanted to have her, and I said no, but they and Medusa kept asking me so I said yes finally and said I could try to have her for a couple of weeks to see how it went, and if my allergy was bothering me too much they could take her back.

    She stayed with me 🙂 And my allergy was healed too.

    I loved her from the beginning, and I learned the cat-language from her, I learned that cats are not arrogant, they are very, very independent and they don't take shit/being bossed around from no one lol! 🙂 That's far from being arrogant! They have enormous self-confidence and they really know how to enjoy life; being free and happy.

    I love cats (and dogs) and I love the way they are. I'm so grateful for having had Medusa in my life - not only has she taught me so much, and besides all the love she was, and beamed outwards, she also gave me Liten, my other cat who is about 9 years old now.

    She is greatly missed, and forever in our hearts <3
