Random Pictures From iPhone

These are a few of the pictures of Abby I had on my iPhone, some of which I haven't' shared before now.

"The Day"
Beginning of the End.

I was home alone when Abby had her attack. So I had to take her to the ER alone. She doesn't didn't like being in the carrier so I always open the top. Well this day, she decided to crawl out of it and go into the back seat. I was so worried about getting her out of the car once I got to the ER, I didn't even consider how serious this was. There wasn't any problem getting her out. When I stopped the car she had moved to the floor of the car and she threw up, so she didn't care that I was picking her up and putting her back into the carrier.
But, does this look like a cat who is in distress?
This poor baby was having CHF at this time and you'd have never known it if you hadn't seen how rapidly she was breathing.

We were coming back from the last time she was at the Specialist on August 8th.
I thought at the time it was so sweet (and I still do) that she laid her head down upon my arm for a pillow.

She was reaching up with her paw to grab a hold of me.
Taking these with my iPhone none of them came out well.
I just have no luck like some with iPhone pictures.
But, these are precious to me anyway.
She really enjoyed this car trip home. She watched so intently out the window, and she loved the trees. I don't know what it was about them but she was fascinated by them. At one point she got up and put herself up against the window to look out better. We got a few double takes from other passerby's.

The whole reason I am doing this post is because I was in search of a picture of Abby in her carrier. Abby was the one who used this carrier more than anyone. But this past Friday I had to get it ready for Boo, and as I did I noticed furs inside all over. So go ahead and call me crazy but I knew it was Abby's. So I went through and pick up hair by hair as many as I could. Just like my heart, I was picking up one tiny little piece at a time. This was another (nice) surprise find. Abby's fur was dense and it had a certain body to it, it is no question her fur. I guess it made me think yes she was here oh my was she WAS here. So I put it in my box of whiskers and snippets of fur. It is all I have left now. Except the memories.

This was the only picture I took of her with the Phone that came out anywhere decent and in focus.
My beautiful girl.
Oh those amber eyes.
She was beautiful.
Oh she was so beautiful in my eyes.
Missing my girl.


  1. I think your iPhone pictures came out pretty well. Abby was a beautiful girl and I love those amber eyes.

  2. Abby was such a beautiful and very loved cat.

  3. Abby looks beautiful even in the iPhone photos.

  4. Abby's beautiful, very much loved and cared for. CHF is not easy to detect as cats are known to be excellent in disguising their illness. Purrs and hugs to you!

  5. Such an incredibly beautiful, much-loved and precious girl. ((((((((((hugs)))))))))

  6. Such precious memories of your beautiful Abby. Sending love and hugs.

  7. I had the same sort of experience with the carrier the first time I had to use it after Whitey died. His furs were all over it. My heart stopped when I saw them.

    I have been using my iPhone exclusively for a few years now. :D

  8. Mom found some of Cliffords furs the other day and scooped them up too. Precious memories.

  30. Yes, she was a beauty! What a sweet find, when you located those hairs. A little like the photo of my mom that fell out of a book I randomly picked up after she died. Its one way of knowing those who are gone are always with us.

    Sending you lots of purrs


We always love hearing from you please leave some pawprints!
Happy purrs
