A New Caturday Dawns

Good morning, dear furriends. We hope everyone has a great weekend.

Here, we are just relaxing and taking it easy. But last night... ohhh last night!!

Mom and I were snuggling in bed, nothing major.

And then, then she looks at me and says, "You know, I could have named you Fluffy."

WHAT???!!! Fluffy!!!!!

Does this fierce mancat LOOK like a Fluffy to you??

Toby and I want to thank all of our furriends and visitors who left condolences. 
It really does help.

Unfortunately, the price of love is ultimately loss, and most of us have been here before.

I'm not sure how he is doing. He was very wide eyed and freaked out when I came home last Saturday. He's not showing obvious signs of looking for her, but I do think he feels her absence. Although he was often a huge brat to her, there was never true animosity, 
and after sharing a home for a decade and a half, he's bound to wonder what happened to his fursib.

As for me, it's not the pain - that will fade - it's the emptiness that comes with Leia's absence. 
I know this is a cliche, but please, go hug your loved ones. Furry or not furry. 

You just don't know how long you will have to do that.

And now, something to make you smile.

The Bridge Welcomes Princess Leia

2004 - 2019

Leia was helped over the Bridge this morning at the vet.
I took her in for what I thought was a UTI and discovered that there was a mass on her liver.

Since her last visit, she'd lost a pound from vomiting, and was down to 5.1 pounds.

The vet gave me a huge blessing: there was absolutely nothing that could be done,
regardless of finances. It was, simply, her time. 

I just can't quite get my head around the fact that she is gone. I wasn't expecting her to not come home with me this morning. No more headbonks or nose rubs or quivering tails. No more rushing out to greet me when I come home. No more spontaneous outbreaks of toy time. No more chirps and trills.

For close to 15 years our life has been about three. How do I make it be about two now?

The Holidays.

We haven't posted much this month. Christmas especially is hard for mom so... We will return sometime in January. We love all of our furriends and hope your Christmas is a most excellent one.

Mancat Monday: Shocking!

My furriends, a terrible, terrible thing happened! Actually it was TWO terrible things

Mom made up the bed without ME! 

Mom closed the door to keep ME OUT!

I just... I can't even... how could she? She says she didn't want a 10 minute process to turn into a three hour event. It's true both Leia and I went to sleep for a good long time during the last bed change but so what???

After she closed the door, I laid in front of it till she opened it again. 

And then I hopped up on that bed and gave her a serious talking to, believe me.

But then I worried that maybe I was just a bit too harsh, so I snuggled with her for awhile.

After all, one of us has to be the bigger species here.

Finally Friday

Yeaaa!!! It's that day that makes most hoomins very happy, especially our own. Enjoy it, furriends!

I, Leia, am pleased to announce a private showing of some of my finest art - the Chewed Paper.
The special corners edition, you understand. Can't find this just anywhere.

Mom says she sees impressionistic style; *I* say she is an ignorant peasant 
because as the artiste here, I was going for abstract.

Hoomins. No culture at all.
