I know many pet owners probably feel their pet is special. I would say that about all the pets that have entered my life, but Romo was truly an extraordinary little being. From the time I first saw him, he became my heart animal. There was an instant connection, and our bond grew throughout the years.
We had a lot of nicknames for my wonderful boy. He was my black and white version of the pink panther, my little boy-o, my sweet pea and my darling boy. Others called him Nana or Romo, the latter his given name that suited him well.
Romo wasn’t like most cats. He was exceptionally smart, very vocal and came when I called him. We did yoga together almost every morning, and he loved the sun as much as I do. Some might think it’s crazy, but he was talkative. He must have had a touch of Siamese in him. I will miss those wonderful sounds, his purr, his meows and the funny cooing noises he created.
Losing him has shaken my world. I want the world to stop, the Earth to stop spinning, so everyone can acknowledge the loss of such a remarkable and sweet soul.
RIP my sweet little prince. You are forever in my heart. The world, especially my world, will never be the same without you.
Thank you Home to Heaven for your compassion and kindness on one of the most difficult days of my life.
