In Loving Tribute to Meme

May 7, 2009-March 31, 2021
Meme (pronounced Me-Me) died on March 31, 2021 at Albany Animal Hospital with her humans by her side. She was born Stitch in a Safehaven Humane Society foster home in Oregon on May 7, 2009. 

She chose us as her new family in July 2009 when we met her at Safehaven. 

From the moment she joined our family, she made her presence known and earned her new name with her adorably sweet "me me me" ways. She was affectionate and opinionated. She was attached to her humans and didn't care for strangers. She hated being outside but would watch our every move (and the neighbors, too) from the window.  She loved dragging her fishy pole all over the house, up and down the stairs, to drop at our feet and demand we play with her. She loved to sit on our laps or to hide under covers with equal devotion. She complained loudly whenever I unloaded the dishwasher. She loved nutritional yeast and catnip. Meme communicated in numerous ways from intense looks, to taps on the arm, to a wide variety of meows, to snuggles...  She reveled in those moments when we behaved as requested and rewarded us with nose-ys and kitty kisses and cuddles.

So much presence in such a tiny body.

In spite of a lifetime of medical issues, she faced life with playfulness, spunk, and a loving nature.

We were incredibly lucky and remain grateful she chose us to be her family and spent her short life filling our hearts with love and joy!

Meme leaves behind her human Mama, human Daddy, and two kitty siblings, Kit and Todd.

If you'd like to honor our little Meme, you can donate a tree at The Gifted Tree.

Meme will be forever missed and forever loved!
