I’ve been putting off this post for quite awhile as it makes our loss far too real. Loki passed away peacefully at home surrounded by all of us who loved him dearly. Despite our unwillingness to let him go, Loki chose to saunter over to his next adventure.
Hiyu: Loki was the best playmate ever and the softest pillow in the world.
Kuri: Loki was born first, so literally, he was there for every moment of my life. I miss him terribly.
Me: The three of you had a lot of fun together.
Kuri: I keep forgetting he’s gone. He always answered when I called him, and I always answered when he called me. You always called it a game of Marco Polo, but it was really a game of Loki Kuri.
Kuri: And sometimes it feels like he’s never left me, sort of like, he’s with me sharing my body and soul.
Me: Is that why you sometimes do things only your brother used to do?
Hiyu: Loki was the coolest cat ever. I miss him. He taught me how to play and how to really nap like a master napster. In return, I taught him the nuances of climbing and balance.
Kuri: I miss him too, but as you say he will always be a part of all of us.
Me: In our memories and in our hearts.
Kuri: Since I’m sure Loki is often still around, can he still join us for Cat Convos? I can tell you want he wants to say.
