Obituary

Nikita, the cat

Nikita (1993-2006)

 

On April 28, 2006 our cat Nikita lost her hard-fought battle against the odds and died in my hands. My fingers felt the bones of her weakened body when I stroked her beautiful black fur. She said her last meow to me just minutes before her last heartbeat, she aimed at me her blink of love at our last eye contact and then looked away but she was purring till her last heartbeat.

I cannot but to cry with tears: Niki, Mačuljo moja, how could you leave me?

... who will now exhibit that profoundly elegant black silhouette in our home?

... who will now greet me with a meow at the door?

... who will now give me a sign "itís time for petting and attention"?

... who will now call me for a playing session with one of your toys?

... who will now roll over in front of me to fetch more attention?

... who will now purr into my ear in pleasant as well as perplexing circumstances?

... who will now lead me to her bowl and give a reproachful look?

... who will now walk over my head at five in the morning and touch my face with a wet nose (and continue with a Ďsandpaperí kiss if I pretend to be asleep) ?

... who will now entwine around my legs on my first morning visit to the bathroom?

... who will now push my hand at the computer keyboard and lay on the mouse?

... who will now sleep in my lap when I am reading a book?

... who will now occupy a part of my bed and restrict my motions during sleep?

... who will now lead me outdoors and be around me for hours of gardening?

... who will now jump on the back of my armchair and groom my hair?

... who will now run in front of me and jump on my armchair before I manage to sit on it?

... who will now allow me to touch her ears and paws, a sign of trust in the highest degree?

... who will now blink at me in love and friendship?

Niki, Čačuljo moja, I love you and I miss you so much... If there is Another World, spiritual one, Iíll search for you there, among the Supreme Beings.
