The Big E, The White Boy, And Winnie

Be not dismayed at Good-bye's. A farewell is necessary before we can meet again.

Dear Eric
We were sadden to learn from your Mom's posting today that you had to run off to the Bridge. We have followed you from the inception of your blog and today it feels like we have not only lost you;but a bit of ourselves as well. We always loved reading about your adventures out in your garden and when you would go on visits to your relatives. You were a wise and wonderful cat Eric and you will be greatly missed, but you know what? We will look for you in that secret place that only kitties know and we will see you visits. Your Mom needs some looking after and we will all do our part to send her healing purrs and soft whisker kisses.

Until we meet again...
loving purrs

Like the rainbow
fading in the twinkling of eye
gone too soon

We didn't think today could get any sadder and then we learned that dear sweet Luxor, the whitest of boys left us for the light of the Rainbow. Two long time furfriends in such a short period of time it is a double blow. Our hearts break for Luxor's Mom and Dad who have been nursing Luxor since his illness.

And then sweet innocent tiny Winnie, who had the briefest of stops into our lives stole our hearts and then broke them. We'll miss you dear sweet tiny girl.

It's been such a sad day and we sent healing light and purrs to all of those whose hearts are heavy with sadness.
