Sept. 16, 2006 – June 28, 2008

We had to put Gun-Hee to sleep tonight.

I am going to continue the photo-a-day, although right now I don’t know what that is going to be.

He was my best friend. I will miss him. And, for him, I will keep posting his photos til the year ends. It seems the least I can do.

  1. Thank you for sharing your best friend. He will be missed.
    Although it’s difficult today to see beyond tomorrow, May the looking back in memory help comfort you tommorow.
    Some one had shared the above statement with me and felt it appropriate to share. Please extend my condolences to Tessie, Kylie, Patrick, and your fianace as I know they too will miss Gun-Hee.

  2. I just friended this journal after following it back from . So far I’ve gone back to just prior to Gun-Hee’s 6 mo. “birthday” and I wish that it would have been possible to have met him in real life, though already he feels familiar from the multitude of pics and stories. He was such a character and I know that he brightened many a life (already mine seems as though he’s added a bit more sunshine even though he’s passed beyond the rainbow bridge.) I’m definitely looking forward to more pictures, although I realize that this may be difficult for you. Perhaps healing will come as good times are remembered of your precious baby boy ❤

  3. 😦 I will miss him too… I would be doing random things during the day and suddenly thing of him and be sad, haha I can’t believe how much a cat I’ve never met has affected me… but then again I would also smile thinking of him strolling through the park, finding carpet samples and scratching them up! haha :’) I look forward to more pictures, and take comfort in knowing he had an amazing life, short as it was. Thank you for adding me and my cats, I hope their pictures will make you smile as gun hee’s do me.
    It’s obvious how much love you have for the Abyssinian breed, as well. I know it’s hard to think about now, but I hope if/when you feel up to it in the near or distant future you get another aby and we can get to know him/her as well 🙂 I’m not too familiar with the breed and have really enjoyed getting to know more about them. Persians have always been my favorite pure bred cat but I think after gun-hee it’s become abys! 🙂

  4. I am going to miss him too! I am so glad I got to know him as he ‘grew up.’ (Or at least, feel like I did.)
    Rest in peace, Gun-Hee. You epitomized the Abyssinian breed.

  5. I can’t even begin to understand what you are feeling right now. I am so, so sorry.
    I know that words will not erase the pain you’re feeling, but Gun-Hee touched so many lives and we will all miss his vibrant personality.

  6. Nothing I can say will make this time better. I have been there myself and know the heartbreak from losing such a special friend. I am so very very sorry. He was so lucky to be loved by you and we all loved knowing him through this journal. I do believe animals go to heaven, and there he is healthy and happy as he should be. We are thinking of you with sympathy. JS.

  7. I’m so sorry for your loss hun. Gun Hee was a very special kitty. He made lots of people smile with all those pictures you have posted. Just take comfort in the fact that he isn’t hurting and that he’s looking down and looking after all of you and his siblings. And one day you will see him again =)

  8. We’ll all miss him – I’m so sorry for your loss. I’m constantly amazed at how I cat that I only knew through LJ was able to affect me so much, so many things would remind me of Gun-Hee, and in so many ways, he reminds me of my Lionel, with the playfulness and the curiosity.
    I know he had an amazing life with you, and when I read the news that he’d crossed the bridge, I cried.
    Hugs to you.

  9. I’m so very sorry for you both. I will miss him, too.
    I found Gun-Hee’s journal in January. That was just a few weeks before our beloved Aby, Hillo, totally unexpectedly passed away. It was a huge shock to us, since she had never been sick before and it was all so unforeseeable.
    I became a regular reader of Gun-Hee’s journal, and was consoled in my grief by his pictures and life story. It was wonderful to see that there were still happy and beautiful Abys in the world, even though my sweetie had passed away.
    One thing that helped me when I was grieving for Hillo was to say out loud: “She had a good life”, as a reminder to myself that she had been loved and we had done everything we could to take the best care of her.
    Gun-Hee had a good life. Thank you for sharing Gun-Hee with the rest of us.
    *hugs*

  10. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I don’t think anyone in the world of LJ would disagree with me when I say he was a very special kitty.

  11. I came back to this from a weekend away, I am so sorry for the loss you are going through right now. I’ve never felt so much for a cat I’ve never met, but I think Gun Hee had a lot of fans and will still have them, despite having passed on. I hope you get better with time, I’ll keep looking at his pictures, though it’s never quite the same 😦

  12. I must have missed this post, I was away from LJ for a short bit.
    I’m so sorry hon. He is in a better place though, you did right by him by relieving him.
    He will be deeply missed… Gun-Hee really touched my life, and continues to do so. ❤ For you all.

  13. Oh my god, I haven’t been on LJ in a while. I finally found time to log in and I’ve really missed seeing Gun-Hee every day. Then I see these entries! I am so so so so sorry.. it’s so unfair. Gun-Hee made my days better by seeing him enjoying his world and his life with you. He truly already had a bit of heaven by having you as his mommy.
