Rain Brown, best known for the reality TV show “Alaskan Bush People,” took to Instagram to share a touching tribute to her late cat, Mr. Chipmunk Cheeks.
Even though Rain adopted a new pet already, she is still mourning Chippy as he was one of the most beloved companions she has had.
In the post, the daughter of Ami and Billy Brown appeared sleeping while her beloved pet was also resting above her head. For the caption, she wrote:
“Missing you so much tonight chippy... I’m surrounded by loving fur babies. But none could love me like you. RIP my little prince. It’s hard to believe you’re gone.”
One of her followers seemed confused about the post, but “Rainy,” the nickname her family use to refer to Rain, clarified that Chippy was a cat that belonged to the Browns before his passing and that she has shared posts about him in the past.
In March 2018, the reality TV star uploaded a photo of her cat letting her followers know that he had died and also sharing a very touching tribute.
“Dear Mr. Chipmunk Cheeks, thank you for your time your love and all those times you mistook my bed for the litter box, you will be missed dearly, we rarely get to say goodbye to our loved ones before they go, but I’m glad I got to pet and hold you one last time before I opened the door to let you into heaven,” wrote Rain.
She added that she knew her cat was still with her protecting and loving her and that, even though it was sad, Chippy finally got together with his “baby sister.”
“I love you my little prince, may you Rest In Peace♥️ September 2014 - March 28 2018,” finished Rain.
In her Instagram page, Rain has several photos with different animals, including horses, birds, and, of course, her new pet, a Pomeranian dog named Jakson Maine Brown. In March 2019, she uploaded the first image of the pup admitting that he “has stolen” her heart “from top to bottom.”
Rain’s mother, Ami, has been in the middle of the spotlight for a long time after she was diagnosed with lung cancer. Even though her chance of survival at one time was just three percent, she defied the odds and is still alive and well.
For that reason, some people believed that she faked the illness to get more views. However, doctors who worked on Ami’s case revealed that in April 2017, she was diagnosed with stage III non-small cell lung cancer.
“Treatment for her cancer included a four-month course of chemotherapy with radiation. Her disease responded well to the treatment, and, according to her UCLA oncologist Dr. Deborah Wong, she is now in remission,” a statement from the doctors revealed.
The statement further read that Brown’s recent scans do not show evidence of cancer. However, she will be continuously monitored closely by the medical team for the next few months.
