Tabby Tuesday: A Love Letter to My Alex


I love you AlexMy dearest Alex,

It was one year ago today that you left us to go to the Bridge.  My heart still hurts because you had to go but, even though I know you know this, I want to tell you a few things.  There isn’t a single day that goes by that I don’t think of you Alex.  The happy memories of the times we shared makes my heart smile.

Those happy memories is why I always have my special Alex heart with me everywhere I go.  I will always remember our first date, our times by the fireplace and the hugs and snuggles we shared.

I love you AlexI will never forget when you asked me to marry you and spend the rest of our days together.  I do wish the rest of our days would have been longer but you are with me always.  I am so glad we had a hurry up wedding before you departed.  I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

I look at the sky at night and see your special star shining brightly.  I always feel you looking over me and looking out for me.  We’ve had a bunch of strange worker humans in our house lately and I could feel you telling me when it was safe to come out from under the bed.  I hear your voice dear Alex and I always get the messages you send.

I know how proud you are of your little Sister Lucy.  She is very special and I know your Mom and Dad are so happy you sent such a special girl to them.  They miss you Alex, as do I, but we feel your presence with us always.

I am so lucky to be loved by you my dear Alex.

Love you forever,


p.s.  Please stop by with some kind purrs for Mom Hilary, Dad Marc and Sister Lucy.

  1. Awww Gracie that was lovely, brought a tear to our eye’s xx00xx

    Gracie, I love you… maybe not as much as Alex did, but I love you so much… You made both me and Marc cry this AM. We know how much you loved Alex and how much he loved you. You brought such joy and happiness into his life, and we loved watching the relationship develop. He really had a spring in his step after you came into his life, and you were there for the good times and the bad. He wouldn’t have recovered so quickly from his surgery if not for his lovely lady – he didn’t want to waste any precious time with you. The time we all had was too short, but we made the most of it. I know that he spends a lot of his days and nights with you, and I am happy, just as I am happy that you have taken his little sister under your paw and have become the BFF she could ever ask for filling her in on how amazing her brother was… Love you all

  3. That is a lovely tribute Gracie. Alex gone but not forgotten. Happy memories.
    Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Aw Gracie you’re a sweetheart.
    (By the way the kitten care book appears to have been re-released and it’s different now. Or at least the part you can see without paying is different… I may buy it just to see. The TOC looks promising.)

  8. Katie Isabella says:

    Dearest Gracie, you are so loving and this was such a touching and loving tribute to Alex. His star shines brightly down on you and your Sisters and Brian and Mom and Dad and his own family as well. He will not be forgotten. Always loved.

  29. Sue Brandes says:

  30. Cathy Keisha says:

  31. Marilia says:

    Sweet Gracie,
    I´m crying… your tribute is absolutely lovely!
    Receive my kisses and my hugs

  32. What a sweet love letter. You made our eyes all leaky. Alex was a lucky mancat to have such a wonderful ladycat as you.

  33. Kitties Blue says:

    We’ve always wondered about Alex. As we started reading less than a year ago, that explains why we didn’t know him. And even though, Mom does read Feeling Beachie sometimes, she hadn’t noticed anything there. Gracie, we are so sorry for your loss. You certainly have remained faithful to Alex’s memory. That’s very commendable. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauridio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  34. That was so sweet, Gracie. Alex sure was a special cat. We miss him too.

  35. Beautiful love letter!

  36. Oh Gracie, this is such a byootiful letter! I hope someone says something even HALF as nice about me when it’s my turn to go!!

  37. A true love story that continues. Where are the tissues?

  38. Jackie says:

    Oh Miss Gracie, what a bootiful letter to your Mr. Alex. It is so hard when our luved ones aren’t here with us.

    Hugs and smoochy-faces to you,


  39. emma says:

    So sorry about Alex, but that was a great tribute. He will always be in your heart, for sure!

  40. Maggie says:

    Dear Ms. Gracie,
    After I lost my own dear Gracie recently, someone asked me if it was worth having a cat, because eventually there’s the pain of parting. I didn’t hesitate, and I know you wouldn’t either. Giving and receiving love is the greatest thing. In moments of sadness we have to concentrate on sweet memories of our dear friends.

    xxoo and purrs

  41. Gracie that was a beautiful letter to Alex.
    We know you miss him terribly and we do too.
    We remember that day vividly and are filled with sadness.
    You had a special love though, that will endure forever!
    Love, Cody and Caren

  42. speedyrabbit says:

    So beautiful Gracie

  43. Clooney says:

    All our purrs to you sweet Gracie as you remember your wonderful Mancat Alex. That was such a touching post and our thoughts are with you and Alex’s family.

  44. It’s so sweet and caring to show that “you will never forget Alex”. Gracie you are special.
