Another Good-Bye....

Teacup Dainty DillyDally
March 15, 1993 - September 26, 2011

The DillyDally family is saddened by the loss of our sweet kitty, Teacup.  She passed away peacefully in the early morning hours on Monday.

Her devotion to her family was legendary ...

... especially to the DillyDally children.  She gave them comfort and loved them unconditionally.  When it came to the DillyDally parents, she took an affectionate but supervisory position.  ;-)
Even Mr. DillyDally was not exempt from her scrutiny.  Teacup understood the importance of dillydallying.
Unlike most of her species, she developed excellent knitting manners.  She enjoyed sitting on my lap while I was knitting.  However...  
...her true dillydally passion was quilting.  She especially loved it when I was working on a scrap quilt ... as they require me to make a bigger mess.  Here she was relaxing on a pile of 2.5 inch strips!
All quilts had to meet her approval ... yep, she was a Bonnie Hunter fan! ;-)
She was also a huge Terry Atkinson fan ... obviously! ;-)
She even attended quilt guild meetings on occasion!  
Our hearts are so heavy ... we miss her presence ... the house feels empty.  We keep expecting her to be underfoot or in the middle of what we're doing.  She held such a special place in our lives and in our hearts ... we loved her deeply ... and miss her severely.  We will treasure the many years of memories ... she lived a full and valuable life.  

Love your pets ... do dillydally with them...


  1. She will forever leave paw prints on your heart...so sorry for your loss...

  2. I'm so sorry! What a sweet tribute to your little friend. She reminds me of a cat we used to have. DH & our boys found her by the side of the road and she was so pretty too. They do make a home more homey and are such good companions.

  3. Oh, Terri, I'm so sorry! It will be hard for you to Dilly Dally without a supervisor. But, she did have the best life living at your house. Our Millie is having health issues and I dread the day she goes. Take care, Mary Ellen

  4. I don't know... I still think we'll need to find a new supervisor...

  5. I'm so glad I got to meet your sweet Tea Cup! I know her departure leaves a void, I still expect Oscar to turn up every once in a while. They do live in our hearts...


  6. I am late reading the post and hope this does not open painful memories but I am truly saddened by your loss. The unconditional love of a pet is a wonderful thing. As the saying goes "anyone who does not love a cat must have been a rat in a previous life." Mary
